Time is limited and precious. Hope this little app will help people gain some perspective and play around with their history.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Code is available at https://github.com/henk23/your-life/

Reminds me of https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mortality-death-cl..., which does the same but on the new tab page in Chrome. The only problem is that one gets adapted to it and stops noticing it.

What a cool plugin. Didn't know it, thanks :)

I'm going for a similar visualization with my "year-in-pixels" project aimed primarily at spotting trends in mood and/or health symptoms, but I wanted it to be adaptable. Hence the name: https://howsyourblank.com

That actually looks really cool and mature. Since when have you been working on it?

What technology did you use?

Seems good but I am constantly getting "Error saving to local storage. Can't read property setItem of null".

Mhh, that's unfortunate. Either you have cookies disabled or you're using a browser that doesn't support localStorage. The app needs it because otherwise all is lost when you close the tab.
