A few months ago, I announced that I will be implementing a proper user login and authentication system for my project, One Word Domains.
To give some context, One Word Domains started out as more of an info product, as it was a database of all the available one-word domains for indie hackers like you and me to find good names for our projects.
However, since I was planning to take this project in the direction of a SaaS, I decided to create a proper login & authentication system so that users can log in to their account and stay logged in instead of having to deal with the rudimentary password-protected-page system that I had from before.
This weekend, I finally took the time to make this happen. I used Flask-login along with PostgreSQL, and the whole process was easier than I'd imagined! This came as a huge relief because I've always been putting this off because I wanted to focus on other features + I thought this was a pain in the ass to set up.
Two takeaways I have from this:
That's it for me this week, thanks for coming to my TED talk! 😅
