I'm doing this new project, from idea, to build, to launch in 1 week. I've built all this awesome stuff in my professional developer career, but doing these small solo projects is another kind of journey.
This is my second project: A tool to simply create a digital accounts card in minutes. No signup needed. Easy to to share different accounts.
The app is built with React, Redux, TypeScript and Firebase in one week. I build my stuff in public, tweeting everyday about the mental and technical hurdles. You can read it here.
Launching feels very intimidating to me. Not that much best practices, I even didn't add that much testing. For a professional perfectionist like me this feels very odd. But adding all best practices leads to more procrastination. A valuable skill to learn: publishing stuff although it's not even close to perfection.
Also, I tried to build the project very fast, so no hour-long thinking about the architecture and the tooling. Simple Create-React-App with TypeScript, Redux (although no need for it), but nowadays it's very easy to plugin. A simple Netlify deployment.
I would love to see you using it. And I love your feedback.
Do you miss some accounts? Do you see some errors?
I would love to hear about your side projects?
What do you build? What are your struggling with?
