I made a social website dedicated to web code

CodeRoad is a new platform focused on sharing and exploring web code snippets made with simple HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

It is based on Instagram, but with the added value of code, which makes it more interactive and engaging than pure images and gives you the opportunity to practice your coding skills in a convenient, enjoyable way.

There is a built-in editor on the website in which you can edit any code you like. It is possible to download the app as a PWA to provide you with the easiest native experience.

Because we're just starting, there is very little content, but if you like the idea, you can still use the site as convenient way to publish your mini projects and experimentations, while sharing it with the community and helping us grow.

If you're interested, the link is here: coderoad.org
Let me know what you think about this idea!

Interesting concept. What technologies did you use? How do you handle data being stored?

React with mui on the frontend, go with postgres on backend and the whole thing is hosted on gcp.

🌱 DEV runs on 100% open source code that we started called Forem.

 
You can contribute to the codebase or host your own.
