Inspiration

Simple but valuable - there is nothing more frustrating than reading through a critical wiki post that is flooded with complex terminology or industry-specific terms. Rather than forcing your readers (or new employees) to look up every term, add a quick glossary at the bottom that spells out exactly what you mean.

What it does

With a simple /glossary command in your Confluence article, our Forge app will insert a glossary section at the bottom of your article. The glossary includes the most commonly used complex words in the English language, and allows you to add or create new definitions as well.

How I built it

I used the Forge Typescript library along with a public dictionary listing online to build the app.

Challenges I ran into

It took me a bit to figure out how to work with Forge and debug issues that were happening. Overall, it was not a difficult experience.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I've used AWS Lambda a lot and it was really cool to work with another serverless technology. Forge solves a big pain point for building apps which is infrastructure and security, it's great to work with a new system that attempts to solve these.
