I finished my dream project
Hey everyone! I am happy to announce that I did it.
Temporary(alpha-version) Site link: http://amritpandey.xyz
Now it is also the first time I made something that I can use everyday.
What is this site about?
This site is for me to post book reviews and scores. People can read reviews and comment on them. I have created a store(which is on another branch -- yet to be released) through which I will be able to sell/lend my books to those who request.
What have I used?
I have used python, flask, bootstrap, sqlite and sqlalchemy, nginx, gunicorn etc.
Features in this site:
- Add, update and delete book info.
- Write reviews and save review drafts.
- Markdown editor for writing reviews.
- Individual book page.
- Comment section for every book page.
- API endpoint for hosting uploaded cover images.
Show me the code.
There are many things/features I still need to work on, if you are interested in seeing the code you could so by visiting here github.com/ap4gh/Review-Book-Site
Why did I delay this project?
The reason I delayed this project was because I was scared. I have heard too much technical jargon over 2 years that created self-doubt. There are many pieces of software that makes a full stack website run and that is the reason why even after easement in the development of web softwares with easy-to-use frameworks and libraries, full stack website still remains one of the most enticing project for any hobbyist.
But I can assure you that you don't have to learn every tool/library thoroughly before commencing the development. Just dive into it and sooner after hours of debugging and documentation things will begin to make sense.
