Introducing DailyKanji

I took some time to get a little web application together. You can see a live version on the interweb, the source code is available over at github.

It’s basically a nice little bundle of web buzzwords: the server-side is based on Node.js, the client-side relies on jQuery for all DOM manipulation, I used bootstrap for the styling and PostgreSQL for storage. All of that is deployed via Heroku.

All in all, I admire the web development community for putting together powerful tools that really speed-up development, and basically made it possible for me, with basically 0 webdev experience to go from a vague concept to a live web-application in under a week.
