I'm Fatih, a frontend developer based in Istanbul and this is the short story of my project: 10015.io.
10015.io is an online toolbox project I've been working on for a while. Since I'm a frontend developer, I've been using many online tools while I'm working. I'm also a bookmark type of guy where I organize all my bookmarks under specific folders. The longest folder I had on my bookmarks toolbar was "Tools" folder previously. At some point, I asked myself "What is going on?". Clearly, there is something wrong with that folder.
This is the point where I decided to create an online toolbox. There are some reasons behind this decision.
- There isn't any nice toolbox which contains every tool I need.
- UI/UX of almost all online tools are really bad.
- It is hard the find the tool I need instantly.
- It will be a good challenge for me to discover how this types of tools are developed.
After I made my decision, I started to think about the brand name of the project. As many of you experienced before, almost all generic domains were already bought by domain brokers. So, I need to find a short & catchy as well as smart brand name. Then, a light bulb went on my head and I found 10015. If you look closer to the logo, you will see why I chose this brand name.
If you have a prediction about why I chose 10015 as brand name, just comment and I will send you a 1-year free membership. (Ohh sorry, 10015.io is already free! 🙃)
I developed 2 extension for 10015.io, one is for Chrome and one is for Firefox. You can use these extensions for accessing the tools instantly.
There are 50 online tools in 10015.io right now and I'm adding new tools regularly. I have a list on Notion for upcoming tools which are added as a result of either my needs or requests I get via 10015 contact page.
I set some goals and milestones for 10015.io. Here is my roadmap.
- 50 Tools -> Write some articles and post stuff on social media
- 64 Tools -> Post on Product Hunt
- 128 Tools -> Post on Product Hunt as v2
- 256 Tools -> Post on Product Hunt as v3
My aim is to make 10015.io the biggest free online toolbox in web, so I decided to use a pretentious title like this for my article as a motivation.
I'm using Next.js (A React Framework) along with styled-components for styling & theming. I'm not using a UI library for components, all are written specifically for this project. Almost all tools are working on client-side only. There are very few of them making API requests to server.
If you have any comments about 10015.io, feel free to write on comment section or you can directly contact with me.
I will post some articles about the tools individually; how I made them and what I've learnt while I was creating the tools. If you want to get notified, just follow me!
