Indie Hackers Quotes

I love the quotes that show up on IH but they vanish so quickly that I was starting to get FOMO by not finishing reading them.

With that, I slapped together an insanely simply React app to load a random quote. Unsure if it's been done already, but in case it hasn't, here's a link for your quote viewing pleasure:

    Awesome! It would be great if you moved it out of CodeSandbox and give it a makeover! 😁

      Was just a fun little time waster for me, welcome to it though :)

        If I get some free time, might make a design or something LOL

        1. 1

          Right on... and if I free up soon, I'll go ahead and at least spin up a Gitlab repo for it / setup a gitlab page, no promises on timeline though :P

          1. 1

            Awesome! Looking forward to it! 😁

    A quotation mark appears in the lower left hand corner that you can click to display the quote again.

      WHOA never noticed that before.... seems like goes away pretty quick as well :(

      Appreciate the head's up!!

    Oh, wow! Thanks for this! I just opened it, and the first quote that appeared on my screen was, "If you fail, then start again, over and over, until you succeed." I'm literally shocked that I've got this one specifically cause I found out today that I failed one of my uni courses. I mean, I don't know if this is a crazy coincidence or something, but it literally boosted my motivation, and I'll go now to start revising for the resit. I also wanted to share this website https://mindofastoic.com/stoic-quotes with you guys. They have listed the best 71 stoic quotes of all time, and you should have a look. As for me, these quotes bring me calmness and a new perspective on life every time I read them! Enjoy!

    The app does not open up for me.

      Sorry to hear that. Had a few people other than myself try it and it has worked fine.... ad blocker or some other extension getting in the way?

      1. 2

        Worked for me in Incognito mode, not sure what is blocking it in normal browsing mode. I do not have ad-blocker installed.

        The app looks cool, Kudos! on building it.

    Build a script to dump all quotes in a file. Here is the github link with acript & all the quotes:

      Very cool. I was thinking of going that route but felt that having a tab I could pin to my browser to get some periodic inspiration was more my speed. Thanks for sharing!
