This is a platform I began building for a client. After he signed and I started working he decided to pivot and not pay me. Sometimes you get screwed in business but at least now I have a cool boilerplate to give away.
What is this?
This project was supposed to be an app where users receive benefits for paying their rent through the platform as opposed to check or bank transfer. Since this repo rose to the top of Hacker News, r/programming and Github I have decided it deserves a new life. So allow me to reintroduce it as a full-stack boilerplate with my current top picks for tech I like to use on client work.
If you're trying to expand into some of the technologies I'm using here, star it, fork it and start playing! Feel free to find my email at the bottom of my site and reach out with any questions.
react-native-web because it's really cool and really easy to turn into a mobile app
Written in Node.js. The server uses GraphQL with
apollo-server for delivering data between client and server and
typegoose for interacting with Mongo in a nice type-friendly way.
Accounts are set up using the wonderful
graphql-codegen are used to generate types for all my GraphQL resolvers to keep client and server totally and beautifully in sync.
Other cool things
I've included a number of animations using plain CSS and
react-spring. If you're a react developer and want to animate your work learn
react-spring. Thank me later. This project is using Plaid to access read info for users bank accounts and Google Place API for address lookup.
