Soo me and a couple of local devs decided to build out own chat app for our decisions

No one wanted to take the project so worked my ass off for 2 &1/2months

Only one guy tested the danm thing
Now its just floating online half done

    Yeah, question 1 is why did you decide you needed to reinvent the wheel and why was it not an indication when others didn’t want to participate?

    Question, how were you planning to:
    - Market it
    - Advertise it
    - Finance it
    - Maintain it
    - Manage it

    Without a plan and a concrete reason, you shouldn't develop shit. (and learning how to code is a reason)

    Seems like a bad decision on your behalf imo

    The app was specifically for a small dev community
    And it would allow us to focus on one topic by separating a main project discussion from junk discussions

    I think it's fine trying to reinvent the wheel. There was Friendster and Multiply before Facebook. What is important is there are users and developers with the ideas to enhance it.

    why not use rocket.chat ?
    I installed rocket chat with docker-compose in 15 minutes and it has mobile app that can connect to private servers.

    There is plenty other solutions like ex. mattermost, matrix, jitsi ( can have voice and video ).
