Hi! Question is pretty self-explanatory. Which of the projects you have done were your favorite and why?

I like seeing creative or personal projects of fellow developers, so please share!

Share the source code/links if you have them.😊

From all my personal projects DeckDeckGo (website / GitHub) is by far my favourite one.

Our "home made" approach matches well my inspiration and it made/makes me learn so much! It's a nice playground to experiment and develop new idea.

It is such a nice project, I love it. The looks, design and the functionality is great, and it shows the hard work you must have put in it! Thank you for sharing:)

Probably my project called Hosta - a decentralized social media made using C# and SQLite.

Check it out :)

It’s my first “real” project, and I’m looking forward to releasing the first version!

Looks like a fun project to me. Of course, I am not familiar with half of it 😅, but good luck on your release. Hope it goes well for you!

Probably my language Night. It's still in early development now, but I have big plans for it in the future.

When I started, I had no idea about lang dev, but I've learned so much while coding it, not only about lang dev, but also git, CI, and much more.

That is interesting... I am not that familiar with lang development, too, so I am a bit surprised and impressed by your project. Good luck with your plans, hope they work out in your favor!

Making your own language is that kind of project that teaches you a lot. I think that's fantastic!
Only one thing, the link at the end of the README is broken (it says it's an internal ssl error). Apart from that, very cool!

Mine would be Bookmate. Probably because it was my first fullstack project, and I had always been meaning to build a booking application. I also learned a lot of stuff with it, and it was my gateway into becoming a web developer.

One of my favs in ML is PCA. It might be a little difficult to understand the math (linear algebra), if you haven't taken that yet, but PCA can be so intuitive and fun to ponder. I spend a fair amount of time at R-bloggers.com, try these:
PCA1, PCA2

Probably my Instagram scraping Python lib instascrape!

I started it about three months ago and I have learned such an incredible amount and have made some great connections because of it

Mine is freshui css framework which I started recently it is a lot of effort to add different css styles for different html elemnts. Currently it is only css based but in future I might add javascript.

I am sure it is a fun and a length project to do. One suggestion tho, I would add more screenshots or images to the website or documentation so that user can see more about what your project really is. Good luck with it:)

I created a coffee bot using functions, loops - python, it functions well enough to satiate me being a beginner in python!
the git hub stored code is here : gist.github.com/0741f0cf54f2fa24eb...

I just checked out your framework and it is quite nice except that the dark mode in your website should be adjusted a little bit more.

Thanks, could you please specify what to be adjusted by opening an issue on GitHub? In addition, if you like to, you all welcomed to open a PR on GitHub.

It is a project to learn ReasonML and ReasonReact at the same time. I do like the language. However, I rarely find any chance to use it as TypeScript is more suitable.

For its longevity it’s worth me shouting out, 1 Thing A Week. Just over 3 years now and still going strong with a weekly blog.

But the one I am actually proudest of is SITEJOY — a project I should have started 10 years ago but only found the motivation and desire to actually start it this year. As of this week, it hit 500 websites featured which would have sounded impossible a year ago!

R stats projects are amongst the most interesting, but I haven't really create much my own. I haven't Geostats as well, but no projects of my own.

First of all, thank you for such a positive thread! Is so cool too see everyone excited for sharing their projects in the comments and you taking your time to give them all a response.

And for my favorite project, it is Candle (Github), a library to manage lights and shadows in 2D games made with SFML (a C++ multimedia library). I think lighting looks really cool in any kind of game!

Thanks for the kind words, I really enjoy looking at all of these projects. I saw your project when looking at your portfolio, it is a cool project. It really is a project that adds your spin on things that already exist. Very impressive.

Ciphey aims to be a tool to automate a lot of decryptions & decodings such as multiple base encodings, classical ciphers, hashes or more advanced cryptography.

It was my first real project 10+ years ago, and I revived it last year! Super nifty :)

ImprovedIn. It was a project I developed for a hackathon, it used different APIs (LinkedIn, MavenOnDemand,...) It read and analyzed the user's LinkedIn profile, analyzed the descriptions, picture, experience, awards, etc. and provided a score with advice on how to improve the LinkedIn profile to add more visibility and better reach. I abandoned it because LinkedIn changed its API and couldn't use it anymore, then MavenOnDemand ceased to the exist/work... and it was gone.

My project called Ready to Serve. I still have to add more plugins to the library. But I'm really happy that it works. I use it often to quickly test the modules I write. I'll just plug it into this server and make the API calls for different cases.

Thanks - I’m really interested in the web development possibilities of the internet of things because in the future so many devices could be internet connected.

Since there are so many companies building products worldwide, there’s potentially lots of interesting work, but it’s still quite early days, quite a lot of hacking things together, and it’s not all that obvious how to find small companies that are building such products.
