Ask HN: What are some tools / libraries you built yourself?
264 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 May 2021
I created intercooler.js in 2013 so I could do AJAX in HTML:
Last year I removed the jquery dependency and cleaned it up based on a lot of lessons that I learned, renaming it to hmtx:
Same idea: extends/complete HTML as a hypertext so you can build more advanced UI within the original hypermedia web model, and cleaner implementation.
Part of that cleanup involved me pulling out some functionality around events and a proto-scripting language (ic-action), and I enjoy programming languages, so I created a front end scripting language to fill that need:
It's based on HyperTalk and has a lot of domain specific features for lightweight front end scripting, kind of a jQuery or AlpineJS alternative.
Ask HN: I feel my career is at a dead end. Any advice on what could I do?

This is my experience, and your mileage may vary:
Multiple times in my coding career I have felt stalled and/or like I was regressing.
Early on, I worked on a programming language, gosu (https://gosu-lang.github.io/) which ended up not really going anywhere. Once the work on it was done, I returned to more mundane web programming for a while. A long while after that, and unexpectedly, I turned a jQuery function I was noodling on into intercooler.js (https://intercoolerjs.org/). After a year of that I returned to mundane web programming for quite a while. Unexpectedly, a year ago, the country shut down. I was at home and decided to see if I could remove the jQuery dependency in intercooler.js, and so created htmx (https://htmx.org/). When creating htmx and removing some attribute/functionality, I realized that a small programming language would be the ideal replacement, so I created hyperscript: https://hyperscript.org/. I had not expected to work on a programming language again, but now I am.
So my career has been some very exciting technical projects punctuating long stretches of pretty basic web development, where the most exciting thing is me wondering if I can figure out what the deuce is wrong with my CSS. My takeaway here, at least in my career, is that patience is a virtue, and the interesting stuff tends to come up at irregular intervals and in unexpected moments and ways.
HTML over-the-wire is the future of Web Development

htmx is the successor to intercooler.js. It swaps parts of the page, not the whole page like Turbolinks. htmx allows you to access AJAX, CSS Transitions, WebSockets and Server Sent Events directly in HTML, using attributes, so you can build modern user interfaces with the simplicity and power of hypertext

This is very helpful! Thanks for sharing. We’re planning a few marketing sprints for Lowdefy  and resources like this is really a timesaver. If someone has any other useful sources, please share.
My teacher told us that software development will go extinct really soon because of "no code/ zero code" us that true?

Building apps in minutes, not months
12 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 17 Sep 2021
Check out https://github.com/lowdefy/lowdefy which is open-source.
We created Lowdefy (co-founder here) to built web apps fast and it is really working well for us and our customers. We’ve already rolled out a few enterprise level apps in record time and the platform really scales well as apps evolve and get really complicated. Even developing apps as a team is a breeze since you are working with yaml / json which is easy to code review, copy, paste, find and replace.

Lowdefy | Technical Evangelist / DevRel | Full-time | South Africa | REMOTE | https://lowdefy.com
We are looking for a dynamic individual who can help us establish, build, and accelerate our community growth.
Lowdefy is an open-source, self-hosted, low-code framework to build internal tools, web apps, admin panels, BI dashboards, workflows, and CRUD apps with YAML or JSON.
The ideal candidate will have some experience in developing web apps and working with data, but the primary skills for this position will be communication and content creation.

Welcome to the Lowdefy subreddit 🚀

Github Discussions will remain the primary communication channel for new feature, version and issue discussions. So we might every now and then ask to move a discussion there to improve discoverability.
Ask HN: Anyone built a biz with no-code tools? SaaS, productized service etc.?
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Jun 2021
We are! We started Lowdefy , co-founder here shameless plug, by building apps for customers. Our model is to build their back-office apps for them with no up-font dev charge, we just agree on a monthly fee. This monthly fee includes any changes and reporting in the future at no additional charge, as long as the scope remains the same. And they own the data in their database of choice.
The model is not perfect and does not work well for every type of process, but we have a few very satisfied customers. Just enough success to slowly grow our business and buy us enough free time to build and improve Lowdefy.
Currently it's working really well, like one gear turns the next. The apps we sell help us test and improve our low-code platform. The more apps we sell the more we invest in our platform and as a result all our apps get better, more feature rich and easier to maintain. Hopefully next, by building an open-source community around Lowdefy we can accelerate this cycle.

In tho context Selling does not only mean transfer of money, like for me with Lowdefy https://github.com/lowdefy/lowdefy it just means people are using it and finding it useful enough to spend time building with it.
