Do I need an excuse to dive back into OMG's source code? Probably not but somewhat this current goal made me do so. I'm painfully aware of some quirks revolving around the countdown timer.

  • Countdown showing up as NaN on Iphone / Safari browsers. Yup. A pain in the ass. Tried using MomentJS for parsing dates instead. So far, the test on BrowserStack looks positive.
  • Countdown doesn't stop. It would run even when the deadline is way overdue. Like a time loop, it kept counting down some random hours/minutes/seconds, giving that false hope that you still have time left. Maybe it's an unintended feature? >.<

Finally done with the comments. Decided to do without the reply for each comment because it looks so freaking messy.

Thinking of how to prevent people from signing up on the blog... I should just delete the sign up form and create user via the console. It should be much safer that way? Or just create an admin namespace?

I should clean up the blog and make it more user friendly.

Decided to file and pay my income tax. Distracted by the letter from iras.

I added in pagination with the kaminari gem and a footer and i am calling it a day.

Goodnight!

Typing this and realised the form field auto expanding as i type but mine must manually extend from the bottom right corner... hmmmm...

Tweaking CSS files randomly isn't exactly part of learning Rails 5 but apart from ActionCable, everything else still feels the same! And I just wanted to make progress somewhere so here we go. I have no idea what I'm doing (forgive me for the weird countdown widget color combo) but I'll probably think of a new layout which I can then experiment with here, hopefully.

Done with the image upload. Just that the image is always overflowing in my view when the images are originally larger than whats needed. Took me awhile to figure it out, but got it settled by setting width:100% in css. Wanna add some tags to the posts next!

At this point of time, I'm wondering if I should start building on top of the existing structure set up around here.

Back then when I created OMG, I went for the straight up MVP. Pretty stoked at how simple and functional it is (at least to me?) but now the itch to revamp is getting back to me. I feel that my attempt to segregate the dashboard / public goal view was done poorly. And based on the feedback I received, there's more that I can do for the UX as well.

Given that there wasn't much activity for a start around here, I put off creating features like following other users and search. I'm still trying my best to stick to the core of what OMG should be about.

  • Focus on one goal at time. As tempting as it is to allow multiple creation of goals, I believe that would be of a disservice to those (especially myself) who gets distracted easily. Shiny object syndrome, anyone?
  • Reflecting on real world, no one would know what you're up to or whether you need any help if you don't escape from obscurity. In OMG, this means posting your progress updates so that it can be seen from the community page. Of course and if there's a lot of activity, there's always a chance that your post would be missed out but that's another problem for another day.

To start from scratch or build on top? Or just learn Rails 5 by creating other random projects? Dilemma, dilemma.

Finally a decent looking homepage by copying a template with lots of inline styling because i am still so bad at bootstrap. Going to add in an image for every post with uploadcare.
