🏁 Today's goal: Submit to app store for the third time. Finish lander. Submit to product hunt

Got rejected from the app store again, here's the reason

No surprise there, this is my first mac app. There were a few other things like not being able to tab through the text fields, which I thought was interesting.

Submitting to the app store probably isn't going to happen by tomorrow. So I signed up for devmate something I didn't really want to do, but if I want to even have a chance at launching tomorrow morning at 12 AM PST, I'm going to have take some drastic measures. Let's see how fast I can integrate their SDK in and set up payments 😬 after work.

I got paddle working on a notarized version of the binary. It actually worked when Alisha downloaded it and installed it. I CANT BELIEVE IT. A week's worth of work over the span of a month and I actually have a decent password manager that I wrote from Xcode > New Project.

The feeling is incredible. I honestly could care less about the launch. It's just great to finally complete a very tiny version of something in the timeframe I set and have it work. πŸ’ͺ

I can probably make any piece of software given enough days… I could probably do ANYTHING given enough days. Wait.

I don't want to get ahead of myself.

I still need to create a bunch of promo stuff for product hunt before 1 AM and I still need to get the lander in order, but other than that, the very first version of allyourpasswords is done. So many features I want to add, not to mention an iOS companion app so I can truly be free of my current password manager.

Turns out I didn't finish the lander, but it's good enough to launch!

Looks nice, but you call it open source yet I don't see any source. Are you going to open-source the app on the release?
