Hey there! I like to make and break open source shit for the web and linux.

Here's some of the stuff I've created -

  • is-a.dev - A subdomain registration service for developers to get a name.is-a.dev domain for their personal websites

  • bsp-layout - A dynamic layout manager for bspwm

  • shotkey - A suckless hotkey daemon for x11

  • algebraic-effects - Implementation of algebraic effects in javascript to standardize effectful code

  • pattern-lock-js - Android-like pattern lock screen library for the web in vanilla javascript

You can sponsor me to keep me going.
