Sometimes I build things in my free time.
The third major iteration of this website, updated with a new technology stack to support a personal blog. If you want, you can still view the previous version.
I created a custom Discord bot for the private server I hang out in with some of my close friends. It's highly specific to how we interact in the server — mostly inside jokes and silly memes.
Digestif shows me the most-liked Tweets from people I follow. It makes it easy to discover new Tweets or see what's going on at a glance. It started as a web app hosted from my Raspberry Pi, accessible only on my home network. Later, I made it post the best Tweets to my Discord server once a day.
OK.css is a classless CSS framework that adds sensible styling defaults to your web page. It's featured in this collection of minimal stylesheets.
I've been learning Chinese, but wanted a more efficient way to review new vocabulary words. I shared a small prototype of what the frontend could look like in SwiftUI, and made some progress building a cross-platform client with React Native. As part of this project, I also researched spaced-repetition algorithms and local-first apps.
This is an experimental Chrome extension that shortens silences on YouTube, inspired by a similar feature in popular podcast apps. It works by sampling the loudness of the video and increasing the playback rate when the loudness drops under a pre-defined threshold.
I connected my Raspberry Pi to a display that shows the current time, news, stocks, and weather. Then I posted about it on Twitter.
Aurora is web-based synth that can be played with a computer keyboard and MIDI keyboard (Chrome only). It was inspired by professional software synths like Sylenth1, Massive, and Serum. I wanted to make exploring audio synthesis accessible and fun!
Inspired by the Philips Hue and the LIFX bulbs, I created a lighting solution that can be controlled by a web browser and can be customized with software.
For my final project in my Computers and Music class, I wrote a program that generates music based on user input (key, tempo, etc.) and rules from classical music theory.
