The App

The goal of the Blokii Image Maker is to allow users to easily generate an image that enables them to download and create a blog post with common tech frameworks they're writing about.

Defining the Features

As I planned this project, I wanted to define what done would mean for this hackathon, otherwise I tend to use my time inefficiently. For the purpose of this hackathon, I decided done would mean the following:

The user interface can do the following:

  • Enable the user to add a title
  • Enable the user to add a subtitle
  • Enable the user to add a byline
  • Enable the user to select a font family for the text
  • Enable the user to change the fill and stroke color of the text
  • Enable the user to add technologies
  • Select image from Unsplash
  • Download the final image from the website
  • Deploy site as a static SPA

The server can do the following:

  • Proxy unsplash searches and downloads from the frontend with the Unsplash API auth token
  • Deploy to Digital Ocean as an App Droplet.

Once the goals were defined, I could start checking off the tasks one-by-one.

Let's see how things go...
