A software developer’s musings on software development

Fretboard Mapper

I created yet another guitar slash music theory app: Fretboard Mapper. It lets you create a diagram of all the notes in a given key, and identify where they are on the fretboard. If you have a 2D printer, you can even print it out! Nifty!

For this one I wanted to play around with using Svelte to build the UI, instead of continuing with the very dated jQuery-based UIs I have historically used out of convenience. It was pretty interesting! Quite a bit different from React. One thing that I kind of hate is the component-specific CSS. I can understand how it would be useful for a pretty large app, but it also seems like it would make it really hard to keep things consistent. It kind of takes the idea of a microservice to the front end. I also think I might just be doing it wrong.
