❄️ Budget.cool

Coming from a need for a simple budget planner, I built Budget.cool as an app to help build better spending habits and keep track of my expenses. After being in a private beta for a few months, it was launched on Product Hunt where it got #3 Product of the Day. It's currently running a Laravel back-end and a Vue front-end.

📊 Larametrics

Something else built from a need, this time the ability to easily view log errors and model changes on my Laravel apps, and get notified when something goes awry. Installed easily as a Composer package, Larametrics is able to keep track of any errors or notices logged, database models updated, and routes requested.

💎 Calcite

A front-end framework for rapid web development and prototyping. Calcite was created to be a powerful development toolbelt, utilizing low-level utility classes in order to control and modify an element's specific styling. This website uses it combined with purify-css, yielding a unique looking front-end with less than 10kb of production CSS.

📨 Shallot

Shallot was a solution to a problem where I needed to send out emails to a client at a certain time period, using my custom-domain email address. I knew some existed for Gmail, but nothing that I could readily find for my needs. Shallot lets you write and schedule simple emails that get sent out under any email address you specify.

🦐 Taro

From a desire to create a super simplistic static-site generator Taro was born. It utilizes Laravel Blade templating and comes with Laravel Mix's asset compiler pre-configured. Pages are organized through a single JSON file, where SEO details can be configured and additional variables added and passed through to the Blade templates. With build speed as a priority, compiling a modest 20 page site takes ~50 milliseconds.

📋 TCHiring

I noticed that there weren't really any job boards specifically targeted for my area, so I set out to make one and populate it. The back-end is a Laravel application with a front-end built with Vue and Bootstrap's grid. During regular intervals a cron job calls the Indeed.com API and pulls in jobs within the tri-county area. Signing into the administration panel lets you moderate what jobs appear on the front-end.
