At Glitch we gather twice a week for Appy Hour, where we share our most interesting Glitch experiments and projects. A bunch of us are huge fans of Dev.to and the vibrant Dev.to community, so we’re excited to share them here!
Glitch is an online code editor where you can build full stack apps on the web. Those apps can range from the serious (our React starter) to the silly (like longcat cursor). The best part is it’s easy to take one app and remix it to a new one. That makes your own copy that you can edit to turn longcat cursor into a lizard cursor.
Here on Dev.to we’ll share our strangest, coolest, and most enlightening Glitch apps, experiments, and hacks: Can I run Go on Glitch? What if I built an HTML5 game… for cats? How can I easily add thousands of trees into my virtual reality world? Can I remix the lizard cursor into a vegetable with a face?
To start some of us on Dev.to put together this list of some of our favs:
Generative placeholders: If you make design mockups you probably need placeholders. For years I just used boring black rectangles, but these are so much cooler!
Are you a wife guy? - A brilliant take on the meme (and maybe even a useful quiz for… some of us out there). But the thing I love most about this app is how easy it is to remix for your own quick quiz or searing commentary.
This Screenreader tutorial is fantastic. It’s such a great concept, and helpful way to understand how to use a screenreader for accessibility. At my last role we all used it as an intro for accessibility training, and it was so exciting to realize it was created by a Glitch employee!
We hope to inspire you to get out there and play with code. Making something awesome on Glitch? Let us know in the comments.
