Hey folks,

2019 summer is nearly finished... so show us in this thread, what was your fun programming side-project!

I'm kinda curious to know what the DEV community was busy doing these past few months.

Don't hesitate to provide a link to your repo or whatever to show us your progress! ๐Ÿค—

And keep coding ๐Ÿ’ช


Editor guide

I did a side project in 6 hours (2 nights after work hours) called Postwoman - API request builder and wrote a post about it on dev.to.

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ It went viral and gained much attention from open source community. I posted it on Product Hunt and it became #2 product of the day.

Now it crossed 3,000+ stars on GitHub and being used by lot of people.

Postwoman was featured in Hacker News, Indie Hackers, Open source Podcasts, and other communitiesโœจ

We're looking for contributions ๐Ÿฆ„


Wow congrats! Love the design! You optimised your time well!
Always cool to see a side-project going viral!


I've been studying some techniques to build a webapp where you could discuss random news or themes with random people on internet. I don't know what people would think about it but it seems pretty funny to me.


Looks cool! If it's good for you it's enough to ship it :)


Personally, I've been coding a mobile app for the amateur handball club of my hometown in order to keep up with results and team standings as I'm now far away from it :)
