Yes, that's how I've supported myself my entire life. I'm 38, and started programming when I was 12. I have created dozens of products/services/businesses over the past two decades, but only a few were successful enough to live off of:
(1) https://www.improvely.com launched in 2012, peaked at $45K MRR, and still makes about $25K MRR.
(2) A collection of Shopify apps, which are tools or services people can add to a Shopify-hosted ecommerce store via Shopify's app store. Improvely has an app there, where I also offer apps for several other common ecommerce store needs: contact forms, newsletter opt-in forms, sale banners, social media icons, etc. Shopify handles the billing and passes through 100% of the revenue you earn up to $1 million per year, after which they take a percentage stake. I make a few thousand per month from their app store.
(3) Google AdSense ads, primarily on the documentation sites for various open source libraries I wrote over the years. http://www.daterangepicker.com has been generating pretty consistent ad revenue for 10 years now for example, and I occasionally run into that library in the wild on all kinds of websites, from local businesses to the US government.
After I got married and settled down a bit, I have honestly had less passion for programming than I had in my 20s and early 30s. I find myself using others' libraries, products and services more readily where I would have built my own solution to a problem in the past.
But I've rekindled the maker/entrepreneur spirit by genre switching so to speak, from code to physical goods. I bought a bunch of production equipment, specialized printers, a laser cutter and engraver, 3D printer, heat press, etc. I now make what could be another full time income ($60K per year or so) selling custom signage to small businesses. For example, I spent yesterday designing then manufacturing a couple dozen custom coasters for someone that owns two small hotel type properties in a ski resort area. The coasters have their wifi SSID/password and a QR code on them that connects a guest to their wifi when scanned.
There are bootstrap date pickers, for example https://bootstrap-datepicker.readthedocs.io/en/latest/, but it requires JQuery. There's also a very lightweight library, Pickaday (https://github.com/Pikaday/Pikaday). Theres no shortage of controls out there, you just need to balance weight and dependencies vs. the features you are looking for.
The mobile-friendly, responsive, and lightweight jQuery date & time input picker.
I am not a JS developer, but in some tech areas there are niches with relatively fewer developers competing for the same position.
I don't know if this is actually a niche, but since I don't see it mentioned frequently on HN, perhaps you could have a look at Google Apps Script , which is basically JS for automating and extending Google Docs (Docs, Sheets, Forms, Slides), and integrating them into GCP. Tons of companies have whole departments living inside Google Docs, so I imagine they would pay for software making their lives easier. I would but I currently don't have the budget for it, so I am writing short scripts myself. Curiously, Bard and ChatGPT produce really bad Apps Scripts code, which would be to your advantage.
When I occasionally hire people, I do look at their repos to see how good they are in a specific language. Specifically, how easy to follow and idiomatic their code is, what the quality of their comments and documentation is, are there any tests, even if very rudimentary. I particularly enjoy original projects like home automation, custom keyboard firmware, an alternative Netflix UI, a ggplot extension, a basic Python wrapper for some overly-complicated API vs. your typical to-do app or yet another analysis of the Bike Sharing dataset. I don't expect all people to have public repos or FLOSS contributions because not everyone has the time for that. However, if you wanted to demonstrate skills in a technology you haven't used professionally, I think it is a good idea.

A web application built with AngularJS to track your favorite tv-shows with semi-automagic torrent integrationProject mention: add a torrent search engine to to the app | /r/duckietv | 2023-06-01
The only way to add a search engine to Dtv is to use it in combination with the Jackett app. The wiki at https://github.com/SchizoDuckie/DuckieTV/wiki/Using-Jackett-with-DuckieTV gives details.
