What was your first post?

Hey, I made a little simple web app, that gets your first ever post on Dev.to.
I will still be working on the web app to add more feature and hopefully allow other sites.
https://firstdev.netlify.app/
What do you think?
What would you like added?

Rails 5 was going to be released shortly. I figured if I emailed up DHH and asked him some good questions he might share the article once it was published. How else is anybody going to come visit DEV before there's content? πŸ˜…

It’s crazy to think the journey that DEV has come.

I concur. Plenty more journey to go though.

Hey, thanks for sharing! I think a great next step would be to make the site more accessible. Some things you could do:

  • Make the search a form, and button type submit which should enable hitting enter to submit
  • Make the title a heading component
  • Give the link a more "interactive" appearance, to replace the "Click me to view the post"

Additionally, it looks like there's no way to return to the search, so adding that would be a great next step.

Not a criticism, just a comment: my first post on dev was cross posted from my blog and that’s where the result takes me. Is that intended behaviour?

I get exactly why it would work that way, but thought I’d ask the question! πŸ™‚

Well ideally it should take you to your dev post. However, if your post is linked to another site then yes
