🏁 Today's goal: Finish setting up the landing page. Attempt to get the app in the mac app store in 2 days 😬
I just wanted to highlight what I think is the best part of this whole thing. I can actually move quite a bit faster than with my old password manager because I did this:
Copy Email is really "Copy Email or Username" it will try to copy the email or if that's blank/nil it will copy the username instead in that order. So when it's time to login to a website or something, I search the partial name "dri" for dribbble, it's highlighted and selected in the tableview, then I just hit CMD+D or if I actually click the row, CMD+C to copy the password to my clipboard. No more mousing around trying to find hidden copy buttons, super excited about that. Oh and for the email/username I hit CMD+B. It's amazing. So much better and more secure than a browser extension.
The whole thing is so fast, I don't even have to touch the trackpad. CMD+B for email/username and CMD+D for the password after typing in the name of the service. Who knew things could be so convenient without a browser extension?!
I looked into what it would take to not have the app in the app store, and I did find devmate but it appears to include all of this surveillance apparatus, oh I mean… "analytics". So not sure I want that. I'd probably be better served by stripe, a uuid generated license key in an email and my own auto-update functionality 😬 which is a lot of work for two days. I would like the crash reporting though. There's definitely a v2 in the works.
Mac App Store it is!
Life. I managed to get one screenshot done today, so that's something
There are so many things wrong with submitting an app to the app store it's hard to keep my head on straight with 2 days left.
Submitted for review, it's really coming down to wire 😅
