As a newer developer we have sometimes struggled to get inspirations for a project, learn a new language or even explore my own field. That's why we created Coderite to make it easier for developers to get reliable information or simply explore programming with just a few clicks.
What it does
Coderite uses a tag filtering system to get what you want (WIP). Posts (cards) are created by us or developers who want to help out the community by sharing high-quality information for everyone.
How we built it
We used HTML/CSS and used the Bulma CSS framework to build the front-end of the website. JS and Django is used to make the back-end of the project. Django also serves as a admin-panel for administrators to make sure everything is smooth sailing.
Challenges we ran into
We ran into lots and lots of challenges with the back-end when using our database to send and grab information. This was our main issue and due to this we could not finish or polish some features.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud of the fact that we used our newly-learned Django skills to make a functioning database that is able to grab, insert and output information to the user. We are also quite proud of the main user UI due to how we think it's clean and understandable.
What we learned
We learned new ways of styling objects, learned more about databases, queries and quite a lot about the Django framework. We also learned that good startup projects can't be finished within 2 days.
What's next for Coderite
We plan to bring Coderite into the real world, we plan to polish, fix and finish all of our core features and release a product (currently its closer to a MVP) that will assist millions of programmers across the world. We plan to monetize Coderite with memberships that allow the user to have unlimited access while at the same time giving non-subscribed user a intriguing taster.
