My favourite side project that I built solo is called Chat Journal, it's a simple and elegant, one-of-a-kind chat-based journal/notes application for android, built with flutter.
Almost spent around 3 months building and improving the app (and still publishing updates every 2 weeks). It literally defines what I've done outside of work for the past few months.
Do check it out and let me know what you think about it ☺️
Just added a new alias to my .bash_aliases.
alias killstudio='pkill -f android'
What it does is kill all process with the name 'android' in them forcefully, like in android studio.
What is wrong with people. I put in hours of my time every day and it hurts to see some annonymous person complaining shit about something that doesn't even exist.
This happened yesterday. It was a Friday and I didn't have much time to implement something that I was asked.
I was supposed to get the cpu temperature from a host device and send it to the server. Instead I just used random.randint(x,y) (python random function) with x,y linearly dependent on cpu utilisation (cpu utilisation is easy to get).
The ability to generate random numbers on fly has to be on of the coolest things that you can do. You can almost fake anything using them properly 😅8
Chat Journal. A chat-based journal application.
An android app I built past month using flutter and flask for the server.
I started with flutter around 2 months ago. I believe it's the way mobile development is supposed to be. It's a treat for every mobile developer out there.
I used flask to build the server, database and even made my own analytics engine. Made an awaful lot of mistakes at the beginning but I think I'm improving at this day by day.
This probably is my biggest and definitely the coolest project so far. There's some saying
"If you have completed building 90% of something, there's 90% more to be built". It's called the 180% rule (or something similar) which literally signifies the difference between building something and building something well enough to be able to publish on the playstore. And this project taught me that.2
Yesterday I spent almost 3 hours trying to sort an array of objects in java. I'm a person who has written a lot of python and dart code and java is just so daunting. Every simple thing is so complicated.
You can sort a list of objects wrt any parameter using a one liner in python.
Finally after copy pasting a lot of code from stack overflow the thing got sorted. And the worst part I don't even know how the thing works.5
I just came across this strategy for the rate us section to avoid the lower ratings on the store.
When you click on rate us. It initially presents you with a 5 star with none filled up.
If you click on stars 1 to 3 then a feedback box pops up asking why I'm giving them less stars. Still letting to change them to 5 stars.
If I click on 4 or 5 stars then the app directly takes you to the play store listing where I need to press the 5 star again.
What do you think about this strategy?. Is it worth implementing??4
Just a random quote I found today.
