but making the frontend dumber and handling most of the logic in the backend pays off.

you abstract logic so you can build different dumb clients, e.g., web, mobile, desktop, cli.

writing a new feature with tests takes a lot of time, but consistency and data integrity are things that pay off in the long term.

it just feels weird that at the end of the day what you complete is that a button does what i needs to do with a click, it feels like it's too little of an accomplishment.

just deleted the last piece of JavaScript from Budgetwise.

Just realized that I ignore reels from brands and always try to consume content from people. And this is as default, from previous experience outside instagram.

It nails down to stories (literal storytelling) or what feels like a story (because most of them are faked now).

So it’s difficult for brands to market directly, but there are exceptions like Nuphy (mechanical keyboards).

But the entry barrier for a new brand is high. At least for a niche target in my demographics.

But first, I need to reply to the support emails 😅

I finally finished the migration from fastAPI to Django and with it a migration to a new database schema.

Budgetwise now uses double-entry in the backend. The frontend remains the same.

Learning postgrest resulted in learning plpgql which was an enormous leap in productivity for building products.

You can ensure data integrity directly into the database and not in the code, e.g., DRF serializers.

I don’t like DHH but he’s the definition of visionary. He might not be right on all things be he was right about Rails.

Probably the best web framework.

His goal wasn’t the best hyped tech, but putting a good enough quality web product out there in a short period of time.

So Mint announced they are shutting down and that sent a bunch of users over to @budgetwiseapp but we aren’t ready so we moved it to close beta.
