Hey guys, for over a decade I have worked with full stack development. I recently quit working with web development but I do enjoy building some prototypes on my free time. I honestly feel like I want to diverge from my background and try easier and faster ways of building applications.
To sum up, I am looking for a stack that may take away the freedom I had but deliver a strong stack where I can develop working websites fast, maybe even without writing much code.
I recently stumbled upon Jamstack (e.g. Gatsby + Contentful) and Crocoblock (Wordpress, Elementor and JetEngine), and I like the idea behind these stacks. A great example of a website I would like to build is this demo
So, what are your suggestions?
We are building an app that allows you to search Stack Overflow, docs, and code on GitHub. Fully controllable using just keyboard
My friend and I are building an app called Devbook that might be especially helpful if you’re learning a new language or starting with programming in general.
It’s a desktop app that allows you to search in Stack Overflow, search and read documentation, and search public code on GitHub from a single place. The whole app can be controlled just using a keyboard. No need to use your mouse. This way, it’s easier to stay in the flow, focused and more productive.
If you’re familiar with macOS then it’s kind of like Spotlight. When you hit a global shortcut, Devbook appears as an overlay over any app you might be using at the moment.
You can think about Devbook as a search engine made just for developers. But no ads, content marketing, SEO, etc.
We’re shipping new features every week. Some of the last updates include a way to copy code directly from Stack Overflow answers and something we call the pin mode. When the pin mode is enabled, Devbook doesn’t disappear when you change the focused window. It’s great when you want to keep coding and have look at Devbook at the same time.
Some of the features we plan for the next few weeks:
I thought folks here might find Devbook especially helpful so I’d love to know what you think. Give it a try and let me know!
Here’s a short video of me using Devbook
The app is built using TypeScript + React + Electron.
A fun thing that happened a few days ago. Someone posted a meme about Devbook to r/ProgrammerHumor. It was a great source of new users!
When I started in web design 27 years ago, testing with users was time-consuming and expensive, but a new generation of tools has changed all of that. Most of us have heard of some of the more popular tools such as Userzoom or Hotjar, but in this post, I want to explore some of the…
