Here's a video showcasing Media Hoarder's features: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGkU9e1l8HU
As we're on hackernews I wouldn't go much into the features of Media Hoarder with this post (see the video above for that). I'd rather like to comment on the DX.
I'm a long-time lurker here on HN and in 2019 I felt the urge to develop my own take on a media center application.
Media Hoarder was already usable after a few days of development and after one year it had 90% of the features I wished for myself but was not exactly ready for a release to the public. So, for this project the last 10% took another two years :)
During the development I read a lot about the "ship fast" mindset which I obviously did not adopt. I could never live with a publicly released version that does not completely show what I had in mind with the app. And yeah, currently my focus is not to get external feedback as fast as possible but to create and release a product as v1.0.0 that I envisioned and use myself.
The tech-stack is:
- Vue.js with Vuetify
this way the app runs on Win/Linux/Mac and can be entirely developed with web technologies - which to me is a great plus regarding development speed. Mind you, Media Hoarder is developed during the free-time of a father of two young kids :D
Anyways, I'm really glad it's out there. Personally, I use it every day and I hope, some of you may find it useful or would like to contribute.
Please feel free to discuss features, development and sideproject-y things, I'm really curious :)
