Introducing Braindump

I have been working on braindump for over a year now. I have rewritten it from scratch over 10 times. Three weeks ago I finally wrote a version that I am somewhat happy with and I am excited to share it with the world.

I have a vision for what a notes app/platform is supposed to look like and unfortunately I have not been able to find something that fits that vision. This is my attempt at making something myself that fulfills that vision.

I have been using it myself for a few weeks at work and it is really cool to be able to use software that you wrote yourself. This latest release has focused on making the UI a bit better. I am proud of the work I have done and would love to hear your feedback.

This release also included some commits from other developers which is awesome.

The project is live here, I hope you will give it a try and let me know what you think!

[…] I released braindump to the world last year to much fanfare. After the initial excitement from being on HN died down, and the PR’s stopped rolling in, it became a personal project once again with very few users. Over the last few weeks I have made several attempts to fix the spaghetti mess that is the current code base by refactoring the current Flask implementation, then rewriting it completely in Django, and even started a branch to investigate rewriting the whole app in PHP using Laravel. Other commitments took precedence and Braindump remains in a fairly usable but not that special state. […]
