The idea behind it, is sending a hug that you can really feel.
How? you may ask, well it's simple, haptic feedback (more specifically vibration).
You can record a hug, and send it to your loved ones, then all they have to do, is place their phones on their chest, and feel your special hug! 😄
First of all, I started my project on paper, sketching and writing down ideas.
🧠 I came up with an editor that's made out of toggleable boxes, each representing a step. These can be either a pause
o or a vibration
~, and they also add up, meaning if you have the following pattern:
~ ~ o ~ ~ ~ the phone will vibrate for 2 seconds, pause for 1 then vibrate for 3 more.
🛠 I did not want to overcomplicate the layout, so it's really simple, being one column on mobile, and two on desktop.
Also, I usually build websites using Bootstrap, but I thought it would be overkill for this project, so I started looking for alternatives.
🌟 Somehow Tailwind popped up in my YouTube recommended, and I thought I'd give it a try. After watching this series by The Net Ninja I decided it would be fun to try it out! (I really encourage you to check out his videos if you're interested, they're great!)
