  • GitHub Reporter

    I created GitHub Reporter because I needed to export the issues of various repositories to CSV, and didn't find a good, simple way to do so. It started as a command-line script that I later turned into an easy-to-use GUI (graphical user interface) to make it more accessible.

    Built with a React/Redux front-end and a Node.js/Express/MongoDB back end, the codebase can be viewed at:

  • Simply News

    Simply News is a personal project a friend and I put together because we couldn't find a news app that gave us quite what we wanted: simply the latest headlines from our preferred news sources.

    The architecture is, as you would expect, simple. You get the three most recent headlines from about twenty of the world's top news sources. Tap to collapse any source you're not interested in. Tap to expand and see up to twenty headlines from any source. Tapping a headline takes you straight to the news source's site to view the full article.

    The project was originally built with a Sinatra (Ruby) back-end and Vanilla JS front-end. Wanting to improve performance a bit, I re-wrote the current version of Simply News with a Node.js API and React.js UI.

    Please note that, as this a personal project, the server goes to sleep when inactive. It may take about twenty seconds to wake up.

  • Bash for Beginners

    Learn basic Linux bash shell commands in this browser-based tutorial.

    This project is a prototype I put together for fun, because one of the only things more fun than learning something new is teaching someone else something new--or, even better, creating something that will teach them for you.
