🛑 I've had a user tell me they see an error while using @StackblocksApp but there is no way for me to see that. I had to explain what a console is and make them take a screenshot.

Not any more, I've setup @getsentry & capturing errors should be easy!

The welcome emails for people trying out my side projects are now powered by @n8n_io

(A table in Notion is the intermediate emails database which saves state on whether the email is sent or not)

#buildinpublic
I was feeling a bit down today, just until this arrived.

I love it when people find things I make helpful 🥳

#buildinpublic
I'm thinking of changing @letterhive_app's tagline from "a permanent archive for your email newsletters"

to

"A permanent home / SEO-friendly blog / Password protected archive for the emails you send"

I feel this is clear and explains well.
#buildinpublic
Quick update: made a few improvements to the sites.

The archives generated by @letterhive_app are fast and optimized, by default. ⚡

#buildinpublic
First run (or first harvest) of @letterhive_app 🎉

I setup an archive for my weekly newsletter, which is here - hackletter.letterhive.com

#buildinpublic
Customizing the website/archive is mostly done for @letterhive_app

✅ Custom CSS
✅ Head tags
✅ Adding content (near head & footer)

Next up - deploying and subdomains to the websites

#buildinpublic
In today's newsletter, I wrote about the first week of developing @letterhive_app 🧑‍💻

- Tech I'm planning to use
- Deciding what to work on
- What worked and what did not

#buildinpublic
I've started working on @letterhive_app couple of weeks back. Could not spent good stretches of time on it. Was working whenever I got some time. I wrote about it in my recent newsletter

I have the domain & I will deploy once I have it working for my newsletter

I'm enjoying building "What Time?". A little iOS shortcut that helps convert time from any tz to my local tz.

But as it's on mobile, and I don't have mobile with me always, I'll try to adapt it so I can use on computer.

Thread of things I'll be trying...

#buildinpublic
On this note, I've been spending some time in figma considering few options for the design.

#buildinpublic
Working on UI and design of the app doesn't feel like progress to me because its finish doesn't mean it is shipped.

Which is wrong.

When I spend time on design, a lot decision making is done and it takes less time to actually code it up and ship.
Starting a weekend thread on the updates for @StackblocksApp

Goals

- Ship advanced customisation like font and background colours
- Ship the ability to choose a Google Font
- Custom CSS (stretch goal)

#buildinpublic
Goals for today are to make it usable and make the onboarding flow better for @StackblocksApp 🧑‍💻

And the most important - Show the code snippet which lets user embed their substack archive. 💻

Here we go #buildinpublic
I'm building this weekend. 👷🏽 Spending some hours to get @StackblocksApp to an MVP with substack support.

This is a progress thread.
