Ask HN: What did you build in March?
117 points by amoore on Apr 1, 2012 | hide | past | web | favorite | 140 comments
I've enjoyed reading these in the past, and I think some folks who have recently built or launched something have enjoyed the brief publicity and chance to get some early feedback.

So, If you built or launched something in March, let us know, and maybe even show it off with a link.




Working literally every waking hour (22 hour+ coding sessions) for two weeks, I've created a replacement for our WinPE-based Windows repair CDs [1] in Linux, in anticipation of Microsoft's non-renewal of all WinPE licensing agreements to 3rd parties, and made them fit on an ISO that (GUI desktop environment, all kinds drivers and binary blobs, web browser, partition editor, custom repair tools, and all) is only 40MiB. CDs will (hopefully, DV) fix any and all boot-related issues, attempt to repair registry, and perform various sanity checks to get your PC booting once more for Windows XP - 7.

Now for the testing phase! (anyone interested in trying it out, drop me an email mqudsi@neosmart.net and I'll send you a copy for free)

[1]: http://systemdiscs.com/


Could you elaborate on the licensing change for Windows PE?

Sorry, this is the first i've come across it, and it looks like it's affecting other vendors as well (Paragon?) but i havn't found a useful source or summary.


I took the month off work and traveled around Japan, Chile, and Argentina.

During my travels, I managed to do quite a bit of work on The Silver Searcher: https://github.com/ggreer/the_silver_searcher . It's a clone of ack[1], but written in C instead of Perl. I've done a decent amount of profiling[2] to find slow parts and improve the speed. For literal searches it uses a version of Boyer-Moore-Horspool strstr[3]. For regex searches it uses the new JIT compiler in PCRE[4].

Depending on the search, it can be 3-5x faster than ack. And thanks to some contributors this past month, it's now in homebrew and Gentoo portage.

Well, back to the grind tomorrow.

Add ability to replace and I'm your fan. :) Until then I'm using my own http://github.com/piranha/goreplace (built in March a year ago :)).



I built a high performance 99.999999999% durable key-value data store: http://www.daemonology.net/blog/2012-03-27-adding-durability...


Just so you know, kivaloo (or, more precisely, kiváló) means `excellent` in Hungarian.

Good luck with the project!


I released Pushover, a mobile notification service with clients for Android and iOS.

https://pushover.net/

How I built it: http://jcs.org/notaweblog/2012/03/16/on_building_pushover/


Very cool project and I enjoyed reading your notes. I'm going to look into using this for the project I'm currently working on.


there, wow. Really nice service. I will get your Android app in a few days time. It would make me more confident in your service however if you could open-source the server software, and allow the client to connect to other servers. As there's no monthly charge, as far as I'm aware this shouldn't affect you negatively, but your call of course :-)


New redesign of BCC, complete with obligatory A/B test. Scroll way to the bottom and click the link if you can't see it. (Might need to click twice.) http://www.bingocardcreator.com


I'm not entirely sure that BCC's new redesign is rendering correctly. From the computer image it looks like your blue top area should be further down. Then in Firefox the effect is even more extreme.

Chrome (latest, Win7): http://tinypic.com/r/2vdpfd1/5 Firefox (latest, Win7): http://tinypic.com/r/1zbs09/5

I like the design, but I feel as though BCC lost some of its "uniqueness." The design looks like a lot of other designs these days. Then again, your customers probably don't know or care, and it's just us who read about BCC.


Patrick, have you tried a large thematic change to the BBC site in the past? It is pretty neat to see the changes for optimization to the site over the years. Still, I can't help but think the "loud" colors lead to less optimal performance. Disclaimer --> Not a mom or teacher.


The underlined menu links sure are weird. I suppose they mysteriously bring in more money.


I built a Posterous export tool that backs-up all your Posterous data (posts, images, video, audio) after the Twitter acquisition announcement.

http://exportmyposts.com/

How I built it: http://blog.jazzychad.net/2012/03/21/launching-exportmyposts...


"... If you are looking for a free solution, you can read the Posterous API documentation to create your own backups. ..."

Love this, because the pain point costs way more than the cost of your service.


I built my first complete rails app interacting with a remote API. http://www.tweepsmanager.com and then I put the repo up on github https://github.com/pbjorklund/Tweepsmanager for everyone to see and judge.

Some day im going to come back to it and walk through the commit history and see if I ever made any progress in my rails skillset.

It's one of those everlasting work-in-progress projects, right now I'm not sure what functionality I want to provide. Right now im thinking about collecting data and drawing some conclusions. But that will probably be another app.

It also made me realize that something like Sinatra + backbone would be a better fit. So I guess thats something atleast.


It's been a good month: I'm about to launch http://workwolf.com : an online marketplace for parttime and odd jobs (which, for various reasons, I feel just does not exist)

I've also had a number of conversations recently on the state of academic publishing and how it can be improved, so I put together a reddit-based interface to the arxiv pre-print server, where hopefully people can now discuss up and coming papers and let the cream naturally rise to the top: http://arxaliv.org/

I'm also a developer on http://lmfdb.org/ but that's a rather technical site for research mathematicians.


Virtual dog fighting - http://PuppyShowdown.com - OK, more like puppy pillow fighting.

It's still rough around the edges and buggy, but I should have an update ready tonight or tomorrow to smooth things out.


I really wanted to use it, but I gave up as soon as soon as I realized that Facebook is the only way to log in. Not everyone will trust your website, and requiring Facebook limits the number of users you will receive.


Yeah, I understand that. I've gone back and forth on it a bit. When I complete my vision for the site there's going to be a lot of fun features that depend on your social graph, so I decided it's worth it.

The one thing I tried to avoid was asking for too many permission. The site only asks for basic permissions + your email address.


Just today finished building my web app search engine and directory http://www.iwaat.com (http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3784625). Still a ton of work and features left to build.


I released my first solo app to help me capture and remind myself of my ideas. It’s called “Noted! and is available for iPhone - http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/noted!/id504164257?ls=1&m...

You can read about my success (or lack thereof!) here - http://atomyard.com/blog/How-not-to-market-an-iPhone-app/


Very cool. Just what I've been looking for


I built http://www.likelist.ca over a weekend and a few days. (Free App Engine Account)

I built it to surface the likes, favorites, +1's, ... that tend to be hidden on most services. Basically about.me + Pinterest for your 'liked' content.

[edit]: If it is not clear enter your user name in the textbox

[edit]: source: https://github.com/nabilt/Like-List


An interactive animated cartogram ‘squishy map’ http://www.carbonmap.org/


This is great! Very impressive.


Built a Ruby-based web app skeleton for Heroku [1] and then built another for Python [2].

Followed that up by making a ticket sales web app using the SeatGeek affiliate API and my Python app skeleton [3]. I also demoed [2] and [3] to the Memphis Python user group [4].

I apologize for the javascript failure on Tickets of Memphis, it seems the SeatGeek API has stopped accepting my jQuery JSONP requests so I have a ticket in.

Scratched an itch and built LaTeX2Markdown (http://tullo.ch/projects/LaTeX2Markdown) - a LaTeX to Markdown converter designed for converting AMS-LaTeX documents to webpages.

Offers compatibility with AMS-LaTeX (theorems, lemmas, proofs, etc), and drop-in integration with a Markdown/MathJaX blogging environment. Pandoc can't cope with these environments, so it seemed useful to build something that did.

The usage model is effectively:

1) Write your mathematic documents (lecture notes, blog posts, exercise solutions) in LaTeX using the full AMS-LaTeX suite.

2) Convert to PDF, Markdown, or another format.

3) Use Markdown/MathJaX for blog, use PDF for distribution, etc.

Full source available at https://github.com/ajtulloch/LaTeX2Markdown.


In libguestfs (part of our open source virtualization tools suite):

- the ability to mount VM filesystems on the host via the API, which was a huge amount of work for a fairly small gain, mainly wrangling FUSE (https://rwmj.wordpress.com/2012/03/29/libguestfs-mount-local...)

- a way to make it easier to use libguestfs from Linux distros other than our primary ones (ie. other than Fedora, Debian): http://libguestfs.org/download/binaries/appliance/

So two deceptive features that are small, but involved a huge amount of work and wrangling behind the scenes, particularly the first one. Made much harder by the primary requirement to write most things in C.


Drawium.com - Website Tour Builder. Made a lot of improvements on our interactive tour builder and the tour viewers after we hit the front page on HN and got lots of constructive feedback. Build a tour for your website at http://drawium.com


Do you intentionally ask for registering before trying out Tour creation?


I completely rebuilt http://refer.ly and learned just enough about the backend part to configure the entire box myself on EC2 (yay!). 350 people in the beta, and sending out the next batch of invites tonight. Yay!


Backbone based Firefox[1] and Chrome[2] extensions for our time tracking and invoicing app, Paydirt[3]. They prompt you to start a timer when they spot keywords related to your clients on the pages you visit.

This is our MVP into intelligent time tracking, seems to work well for people that spend all day in the browser. We'd love some feedback!

1. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/paydirt-time-...

2. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/clfnlkjacgohceabde...

3. https://paydirtapp.com


brilliant! I may "embrace and extend" this idea for my workplace. I'd build a browser extension that notices when I load a new trouble ticket and makes an entry in my timecard for it. If I used paydirt, I'd love the thing you just built.


The last day of the month I built my own screencast.com server for use with the Jing screenshot software. This enables you to take and upload screenshots with Jing, but it bypasses the real screencast.com server and uploads them to your own server instead (by redirecting screencast.com through dns or hosts file trickery).

This is useful for businesses who don't want their screenshots to go up on the web. They can keep all their screenshots on their intranet while still using the great Jing client for taking & sharing the images.

It needs polishing but it's a good 1st step into making something that is ready for production use.

https://github.com/tayl0r/JingServer


A platform for content creation with Mechanical Turk (e.g. stories, discussions, question/answers). Here are some screenshots :

http://imgur.com/a/RGirp#0

If anyone has a fresh startup/website that needs content to get it off the ground, I can be of assistance.

I am the creator of the Rails/Mechanical Turk integration gem Turkee ( http://www.github.com/aantix/turkee ), and am an expert with Mechanical Turk and content creation. Drop me a line if you'd like to see a demo, jim.jones1@gmail.com . I do contract work on the side and live in San Francisco.


I made an in-browser JavaScript runner for the programming class I teach, which is held in a room full of PCs with IE8 installed. Syntax highlighting, logging and JSHint.

http://jsrun.heroku.com/


I built an in-memory NoSQL index (not a database) for answering subset inclusion queries, i.e. "find me all the Items with {Feature1, Feature2, Feature3}". It also supports queries by category, and by color.

It's vastly faster than SQL for this purpose.

http://www.chrisstucchio.com/blog/2012/introducing_hobo.html

https://github.com/stucchio/Hobo

I say it's not a database because it isn't even a Key-Value store. It's just a key-store - you query it for the keys, and retrieve the values from somewhere else (e.g. postgres).


Got tired of all overcomplicated tree plugins for jquery and built my own really simple one: https://github.com/mnilsson/treeish


Finally released the paid subscription offer for my web app and got the first customers. http://www.wookmark.com/about/plus


You might want to look into your permalinks (/about/about,...).


Where do you see a problem? The repeat of "about" in this specific URL? Thanks.


Everything starts with /about/: wookmark.com/about/contact, .. Did you intend this? On the main page you've hidden all the stuff like contact, help, about, etc. behind 'About' link. I understand this. I think you dont have to follow with this pattern and 'hide' all pages 'behind' /about/ in link structure. Made me unnecessary thinking about it.


A quick little tool to take the boilerplate work out of using forms in bootstrap : http://bootstrap-forms.heroku.com/


I started working on a pandemic simulator app for Android with a guy I met on Reddit (He started it but needed backend help). You infect other users with the app based on your physical location. The early beta has been well received.

April will be spent re-writing it from scratch to support more stats and other cool features.

Patient Zero: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.egondev.an...


Created one page site for browsing and filtering GitHub watches http://gh.hnresources.com/


I launched Indie Intern (http://www.indieintern.com) which is a project manager for movie productions. It takes a script and will automatically start the budget, schedule, production board, and call sheet creation process. Saves filmmakers a lot of time and money over competing products which is important for low-budget productions.


Helped build ffi_gen, which uses Clang's parser to transform C header files into Ruby bindings. https://github.com/neelance/ffi_gen

Contributed some additional Homebrew recipes.

Gave a talk at CloudFoundry Open Tour. http://speakerdeck.com/u/jvoorhis/p/hacking-cloudfoundry


A headline generator for my favorite gossip blog: http://robertelwell.info/mediatakeout-headline-generator/

The look and feel is a total tribute to MediaTakeout.com. You can search for terms in the corpus of generated headlines. It was just an excuse for me to play with NLTK and CSS. Nothing too impressive :)


Finished the second release of my appointment scheduling software:

https://www.appointlet.com/


I just built http://failrecovery.com

I was so sick and tired of tweeting companies fails, to let them know what was going on, and just have them ignore me. So, I figured by using social pressure, maybe I can get their attention. I mean, who really wants to be at the top of my "I have bad social customer service" list.


I built my first Live Wallpaper for Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.monzonito....

Also built an android app for a manufacturer of GPS tracking systems. The app allows owners to control their assets(cars, motos, boats, etc).


I built srctree (http://srctree.net/). In short, it aims to be a pastebin + git + canvas mix. An example of usage: http://srctree.net/3Q-1

It still needs a lot of work to become usable, but I am already happy I got this far!


http://superfamicom.org/text-to-8-bit

I built a toy: Text to 8-Bit

Create 8-bit game screenshots using your own text in Fami-liar games. About 12 hours of work, most of that is in graphics work (chop chop chop). Javascript with Canvas, not terribly fancy but very fun.


I kept building https://www.wisecashhq.com/ (and we're starting dogfooding which is a great feeling!).

I also launched a little website for my favourite Ruby ETL at http://www.activewarehouse.info/.


I built and launched Geocoda (https://geocoda.com), which lets developers location-enable their applications. Initial features include geocoding and a spatial database.

Thanks to the first round of feedback we got on HN, and to those who have already checked it out!


http://trackt.com - real-time collaboration using sticky notes


It's pretty. You should implement hammer.js from the above comment so I can use it on my iPad.


I've been working on adding access over WiFi to "Handbag for Android" an app that helps you create Arduino-based accessories for Android devices without writing Android code. (http://handbagdevices.com/)

Up until now Handbag has only used the Android Open Accessory Protocol/ADK but one of the requests I've had has been to make it work over WiFi as well.

Taking the opportunity to also re-architect the app a bit.

My project log for March is available at http://www.labradoc.com/i/follower/p/android-arduino-handbag... for more details.

(Did I mention you can also start a project log for your project at Labradoc? http://www.labradoc.com/ :) )


I built BuyMyFile (http://bmf.cm). BMF is a file marketplace that rewards buyers with discounts for referring sales. Please let me know if you find this service useful so I can keep working on it. Thanks patio11 for feedback on this.


I haven't tried it out just yet, but you should certainly keep working on it. Great idea!


The site is still raw but I decided to put it up to get feedback. It's a file marketplace mixed with a referral system. I think people should be rewarded for sharing.


Mostly worked on Kippt:

* New landing page design https://kippt.com

* Readability integration

* Extensions for Firefox and Opera

* Preview feature for public lists https://kippt.com/karrisaarinen/yc-application


I spent the month doing coursework. I had a lot of pdfs open with completely nondescriptive titles, so I wrote a script to set the title of a window.

https://github.com/ChickenProp/set-window-title


I built Filosync, which is a distributed version control system for non-programmers with a very simple UI, because I love the DVCS concept and I think everyone should use it! http://www.filosync.com


Built a way to stage virtual bike races with GPS data. Check off a couple of rows and click "Compare Efforts" to see: http://ridewithgps.com/segments/McBeth-Hillclimb


I launched two movie/tv related websites:

http://checkafilm.com - search for a film by title and see an aggregate review summary about the movie and any content advisories it might have.

http://tmfdb.org - a bookmarklet for automatically muting profanity in Hulu videos for a more "family-friendly" experience.

Both are open-source - https://github.com/jacobwg/checkafilm and https://github.com/jacobwg/tmfdb.org/tree/master/script


I created a simple search for The New York Times crossword puzzle.

http://donohoe.io/projects/crossword/

It ranges form Dec 31st 2011 back to Oct 1996. Its nothing special (I don't actually love or do crosswords) but when you search for some terms (mostly as Answers) it provides fascinating Questions.

  FACEBOOK : Alternative to Friendster or MySpace

  NYTIMES : Popular news site, with ".com"

  HACKER : Cyber-nuisance

  BACON : Strips for breakfast
Example: http://donohoe.io/projects/crossword/#/bacon


That's really cool! UNIX was an answer eight times, but Linux didn't come up at all.


Bulbs 0.3 (http://bulbflow.com/overview), a Python framework for graph databases (released it in March, but started building the 0.3 in November).



Wrote my first makefile, which was quite an experience.

https://github.com/mustafa0x/pafm/blob/master/Makefile


I used Python for the first time to copy the information from one of my required timesheets into another required timesheet. It uses BeautifulSoup, mechanize, and selenium.


I made a chat app for fun and have had the help of a bunch of awesome contributors :) https://noodletalk.org


AutisticTouch.com for the Lehigh Valley Hackathon (hack.lehighvalleytech.org) where my team and I took 1st place overall and tied for crowd favorite.


Hi Jason,

You should setup a rewrite rule for the autistictouch.com


Oh, there are so many things that need finishing (not to mentions starting). That starts today. I guess technically we launched this yesterday, as yesterday was demo day, but we built most of it in March.


http://axgl.org/ - Wrote and launched an open source, hardware accelerated 2D flash game library


Took a month off in March to relax and do some traveling. Two weeks in and I can't take any more doing nothing, this popped out: http://www.getonthegame.com.au

It's a price comparison website for Australian video games. Still early days yet, but it's been a fun distraction and an opportunity to learn some new tech/tools in the process.


Nothing overly ambitious. A jQuery plugin (https://github.com/jdjkelly/jQuery-haversine) and a Chrome extension (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/fljocfllbkbekpoaih...)


Experimented with a Pinterest-like column layout (using twitter feed as example) and came up with this: http://bjorkst.am/twcols (resize browser window and watch transition magic)

Also re-designed my personal landing page ( http://bjorkst.am )


I built HubStar: http://hubstar.me/

The missing "Star" feature for GitHub repositories.


I launched a pixel art app for the ipad http://pixelartapp.com


I and a friend of mine launched http://www.brandonacademy.com

We'll be releasing frequent UX and content updates over the course of the next couple months as we develop new features and add more tutorials. Please feel free to make suggestions; all are welcome! :)


My book, Hacking the Kinect, came out: http://amzn.to/H8slu4

I use Youtube as a music player as I enjoy watching the videos along with listening to the music. However, the user interface for Youtube is not designed to be a music player interface so I decided to build one: http://vekii.com/.


I built a tiny (>3 kb) JavaScript date picker. It's been done many times before, but it's my first open source project so I'm pretty stoked even if no one ever uses it. http://sunmer.github.com/tinycal/


I built http://keepdream.me in 24 hour period based on a whim one day when I woke up. I fully expect to be the only long term user, but it was nice to learn about setting up node/receiving email on Heroku.


I learned Objective-C and XCode in my spare time and built nd iOS Client for Pinboard http://pinboardapp.in

Not very pretty, but I am happy that it helped me get off the ground. Now working on something more complex.


http://www.roomify.tv - One click video meeting rooms. We have applied to YC S12.

Would love some more feedback, here or @kseggie, kavan@saymama.com.



http://tinypag.es

It's ultra-minimalist hosting. A bare HTML document and a short url. Built it to scratch my own itch. Bought the domain and opened the repo on March 5th. Launched 2 days later.


I developed a pace calculator for runners ( http://pacecalculator.elsasslabs.com/ ). Mostly for my own needs, but hopefully someone else will find it useful !


I built a crank calling app using twilio and sendgrid at a hackathon this weekend. Its nothing special but its the first thing I've really ever made.

http://cranksomeone.webs.com/


Yay, congrats and thanks for using Twilio. We'd love to share what you built with the community, can you drop me a note at danielle@twilio.com if interested?


I'd love to. Sending you an email now.


I solved security problems and made a enormous test-harness for ThisCausesThat, a research project for UC Irvine. https://github.com/eLobato/wc_master

http://drupal.org/sandbox/exratione/1484526


A product that lets you Build Your Own Phone System: http://www.buildanumber.com

Very early alpha release. Lots of UI issues and its in desperate need of a tutorial.


Nothing special, just a little twitter scheduling app where one schedules tweets by sending an email with a list of tweets to it. http://buffero.me


My first android app. Added multithreaded ability to request slow network resource, ability to issue raw SSL connections + very nice looking GUI.

Actually that was a good month re: learning new, and cool stuff.


Would love to check it out, if you can provide a market link!


I launched a web store: http://mapsalesdirect.com It's not saas but it is fulfilling a 2012 goal of "make and launch something"


I taught myself exactly what I needed to know about backend development (and no more!) and launched http://www.quipvideo.com!

Feedback appreciated.

A method for constructing a semantic graph from a large corpus of text.


I launched portnotifier.com (not actually working currently) and mailtoolkit.com :-)


I launched OptionBounce, a stock options swing trading system.


added some features to http://classfy.com


I released an iPhone app called the nap app which allows you to power nap effectively, making sure that falling asleep is taken out of the time that you actually want to sleep for. So you want that 20 minute sleep? The nap app makes sure you get a full 20 minutes, even if it takes you 12 minutes to fall asleep! http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-nap-app/id508709758?ls=1&...

I also released updates for my other two apps My Audiobook player: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/my-audiobook-player/id4593930... Specialises in playing audiobooks you download from 'those' sites

Daily positive affirmations: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/positive-affirmations-daily/i... Positive affirmations sounds silly (my girlfriends idea!) but they are all quotes about success and whatnot. It really does keep me motivated. I look forward to getting my quote!


I built Write.app (https://writeapp.me), a replacement for the Notes app on my iPhone that works across devices (desktop, tablet, and mobile versions all in one using responsive design). It supports Markdown and will soon save to/read from your Dropbox account. It's also open source if you want to help. I could really use help with UI and Dropbox features (http://github.com/billpatrianakos/Write.app)
