Guess it's time for a status update.
2020 huh. Well as usual I don't have a resolution this year. My resolution deadlines are quite small and always ends with utter disappointment, so I better not mention it here.(recruiters ignore this)
Let's get serious!
In January, I started working on a project named Solitude. It's a note taking application which is using GitHub as a CMS. It will create and maintain a repository of notes and will sync them in real-time. The design is inspired from utteranc.es which uses GitHub issues to store blog comments. This website uses Utterances too.
Solitude aims to be a very opinionated and self-controlled note taking application. Hence the contents of the solitude-maintained repository should only be modified by the application in order to maintain a stable state.
I am using React, Redux and GitHub's graphQL API to build this application. Also using Codemirror as the note taking editor.
The hardest part building this application is to rememeber technologies that I haven't used in almost an year.
New project ideas
- A micro server to authenticate GitHub
- Minimal static site generator
I will be using python to build both the projects.
Also I am thinking to switching to Emacs. Already joined their camp on reddit.
P.S: Unedited and raw stuff
