Do you guys recommend Flask or Django for web apps?
I've been developing WordPress sites for several years now, both for clients and personal projects. The more sites I've built, the harder it has become to maintain them all (updates, backups, etc.) It got so bad that my personal website was actually hacked due to an outdated plugin... not a fun experience.
So, like any Indie Hacker (or broke college student), I set out to solve my own problem. I needed to keep my sites maintained and I needed it to happen automatically - emails and screenshots would be a nice bonus.
Naturally, the engineer in me took over the would-be entrepreneur and I began building.. a lot. By now, most of you reading this are screaming "LEAN STARTUP!" and you're right, I know. I just can't help myself sometimes 🤷🏼♂️.
Several weeks and a lot of coffee later, I've added email notifications, screenshots, and a dash of machine learning (used for detecting vulnerabilities). The result? -> sitemgtx.com a SaaS app that manages, updates, and secures WordPress sites.
Now, there are a few companies that offer a similar service. Only, their model is based on employees actually managing the sites manually. Also, they're a bit pricey for my liking -remember, broke college student talking here. Just an FYI in case you guys were wondering.
Anyway, if you guys have time to drop some feedback about my latest project I'd really appreciate it ( Is this something you could use? Why am I going to fail? Pricing? Additional features? etc.)
Thanks, happy hacking!
