In a nutshell

Stars on GitHub repos Followers on GitHub Sponsor my work

A full-stack developer from Bucharest, Romania, EU, with 25+ years of experience.
Curious by nature, an avid reader of fantasy, fiction, history & tech-related literature, always looking to expand my skillset and horizons, to understand how things work and to make them work better.

Creator of 📒 Mantine DataTable, 🖱️ Mantine ContextMenu, ✨ tRPC-SvelteKit and 📦 PocketBaseUML.
Also built 🐧 Expose-WSL, 🌐 IISExpress-Proxy and other open-source projects.

Current tech-stack

Not a huge fan of Tailwind.

Things I've worked with, back in the Dark Ages

  • PHP & MySQL, around y2k (yeah, I'vew been around a while)
  • Java/J2EE, .NET/C#, Oracle, SQL Server, BizTalk, cca. 2002—2007
  • CoffeeScript & IcedCofeeScript, back when when JS had no async/await
  • Quite a few templating languages such as Mustache or Jade/Pug and some strange old JS frameworks (Backbone, Riot.js) in the pre-React era

Notable open-source projects I've built over the years

  • 📒 Mantine DataTable — a "dark-theme aware" table component for your Mantine UI data-rich applications, featuring asynchronous data loading support, pagination, multiple rows selection, column sorting, custom cell data rendering, row context menu, and more
  • 🖱️ Mantine ContextMenu — A lightweight yet customizable context-menu for your Mantine applications, with a succinct API and dark-theme support
  • ✨ tRPC-SvelteKit — an adapter allowing you to build end-to-end typesafe APIs with in your SvelteKit applications
  • ✨ tRPC-Transformer — A simple tRPC transformer based on superjson with Decimal.js support
  • 📦 PocketBaseUML — a free, open-source UML diagram generator for PocketBase that can be used online to connect to HTTPS servers, or runned as an npm package to inspect local HTTP servers
  • 🐧 Expose-WSL — probably the easiest way to expose apps running on WSL to local network devices
  • 🌐 IISExpress-Proxy — A simple, yet practical command-line utility enabling .NET developers to test web applications served by IIS Express on remote devices; it's been around since 2015, but I'm amazed by the sheer number of people who still have to use IISExpress nowadays
  • 📖 textdiff-create and textdiff-patch — simple utilities for creating and applying lean text diffs
  • 🛠️ ASPAX — a simple Node.js asset packager inspired by Rails, in 2013, when Webpack didn't exist
  • ⚙️ Node.js, MongoDB, PostgreSQL & MySQL cartridges for Redhat's OpenShift, in 2014-2015, when Docker wasn't yet a wide-spread tool


Please consider sponsoring my work if you find it useful.
Dedicating time to build and maintain great open-source projects would not be possible without your generosity.

The long(er) story

You can find my full-length boring obituary Resume/CV on LinkedIn at, but here's the blurb:

  • 25+ years of experience in web and software development
  • I've worked for various companies (from mid-sized to large multinationals such as Allianz and Garanta — member of National Bank of Greece) during the initial part of my career; for the last part I've been working as an independent developer
  • I sometimes rant write about technology and its impact on human behaviour in articles like these.

Hobbies, likes & dislikes

❤️ open-source, lazy mornings, good coffee, trekking in the mountains, reading
👎 hypocrisy, xenophobia, willful ignorance, people talking bullshit

Before approaching me for work

I'm potentially interested in subcontracting front-end or full-stack development work (leaning towards front-end).

You can learn more about what I did over the years by visiting my LinkedIn profile, but since you are on this page, chances are that you already have a pretty good idea of how my skills could be of assistance.
If you want to hire me, please consider that I'm most productive with the aforementioned tech-stack.


I'm currently getting a constant flow of approaches, some of them relevant, others not so relevant2. Therefore, mentioning in your text that you've seen my GitHub profile would:

  • tell me that you know exactly what you need me for (as opposed to just trying to fill a vacant role);
  • let me know that my skills would indeed be valuable for you and would spare us both valuable time that we'd otherwise have to spend in trying to assess that;
  • help me prioritize your message and come up with a quick reply.

How to approach me

Drop me a message at the email address listed in my GitHub profile and we'll schedule a meeting on


  1. I couldn't find the time and motivation to turn into a real business and since the Romanian Government digital strategy related to eFactura is a major clusterf*ck, I'm thinking to (temporarily?) suspend aceepting new subscriptions. ↩

  2. I'm not really a fan of multistage recruitment processes and taking coding tests.
    My open-source projects are being starred and used by lots of developers and companies worldwide, and sum up to millions NPM downloads.
    My coding skills are, therefore, vetted by the community. ↩
