Are you me OP? I've been working exactly on the same project myself, and also got demotivated.

First I planned to make it as a desktop app, but then I realised desktop apps are thing of the past and nowadays you need to make web apps to be accessible and portable.

Then I got demotivated by the number of great and established products.

Now I'm trying to figure out a new (developer oriented?) product to develop in my free time.

It's tough not being among the first at something.

You never want to be first in a market. You spend way too many resources educating the market, and you have no idea the size of the market. Especially if you have finite resources. Better to enter an established market with a better product.
