Projects

During my free time, if often do some experiments and try to bring some ideas to life, sometimes on my own, sometimes together with other people. Not all of them see the light of the day, but every single one is important at least in the learning process and improvement of my skills in different areas. Bellow you can find some examples of things I previously worked on or am currently working on:

 

Hawkpost

Using GPG is not an easy task for many non-tech savvy users. This leads to people often sharing credentials and secrets through insecure channels such as email and leaving it there is plain text. This tool helps you in situations where you want to receive securely certain information, you just generate a link, share it and anything submitted on that URL is automatically encrypted in the sender’s browser and forwarded to your email.

Mdvis

This is a simple tool that helps you navigate and read groups of markdown files contained in a given folder on the browser, like you do on Github. This is specially useful for people that store lots of notes in markdown files.

Rapido

This one wasn’t a specific need, but was born in order to test new technologies. In this case this project lets users create and share public “to-do lists”, that can be edited by several people in real-time, also having a discussion section for each element in the list. Later it was turned into a Firefox OS app as described here. It is no longer running but the code is publicly available.

Bundlr’s Opera Extension

At the time when I was an Opera user, some web services that I used didn’t had an official extension to this browser, which led my to have screen space wasted in with bookmarks. Bundlr was one of them (now the service looks partially dead), so I built an extension the used the bookmarklet, that was later the foundation of the official one.
