Side Projects, FTW!

One page website that tracks the accuracy of alarmist headlines. There are good reasons to be aware of the dangers we have to face in the future, but alarmist claims, like “world would run out of food” don’t help anyone.

SVGBox

SVGBox.net is a free API to let devs use thousands of icons for free without the hassle of handling SVG Files. It has been featured on CSS Tricks and Smashing Magazine.

As of June 2022, it’s serving hundreds of websites and handling over 3M requests / month.

EightColors

EightColors went on top of Hacker News and was universally liked as being simple yet challenging.
