About

This is the source for my online ogham transliterator progressive web application (PWA) at https://ogh.am. Checkout the screenshot of it on iOS below!

I built this as a learning exercise for modern web tooling and PWAs and because it was fun. I wanted to make it work entirely offline, including the generation of an ogham image that could be downloaded on desktop and mobile - this was accomplished using some neat (and rough around the edges) <canvas/> work.

Another neat part of this application is that it's tiny and loads quickly. This could be pushed much further, but convenience and maintanability is always a factor and given the size of the final bundle (30KB before gzip) I'm pretty happy.

The code used to generate the ogham text is available via npm and GitHub

Enjoy, and feel free to give feedback or make PRs and Issues.
