The Creative Network - Live streaming a full stack web app02 Mar 2017
It’s been a really fun experience but I feel there should be something tying
everything together. One single long-running project can do that.
A little while ago, Stephens and I had an
idea for an app we could pair on as a learning experience for him (We worked
for the same company at the time). We didn’t end up working on it together and
we decided we’re going to do it while live streaming and pairing.
The application is called “The Creative Network” and it as a place where you
can share your creative space for inspiration and for people with the same
hobby to find inspiration.
For example, say you want to share your awesome home office. You can take
pictures, add some description and so on.
So far, nothing special, the really cool feature is that you’ll be able to tag
the images with product links, and people will be able to buy the products
right from your page.
These are the homepage and the product page.
- State management: Redux/Mobx
- npm, webpack, build scripts
- Ruby On Rails?
- Lambda functions
- Node.js (GraphQL)
- React Native (iOS)
