Although I did some small projects like pokimg whenever I lost motivation with SummonerStats, I didn’t start any big projects despite having several ideas that I wanted to work on. So after finishing SummonerStats, I started working on Yamtarr, a self-hosted web application that helps you track all your media, such as movies, TV series, manga…
It’s still in early development, but I think it’s looking good. I’m using Django again, which I enjoyed working with and I think it’s a useful framework to learn. I’ve also moved to SCSS after seeing how much easier and more manageable it is compared to traditional CSS. The base of the application is already done, the account system and media management is already there and I’m currently learning about unit testing and implementing it.
