I was wondering what tools you use to deal with:
Project Management: codecks.io
Chat: Slack and Discord
Notion mainly for changes/updates no team
Me and my team use different tools depending on client, but the one that we use the most is Trello.
It's also from Atlassian but it's very simple. I think it's the best fit for smaller teams.
Atlassian stack. It's free for 10 and under users.
At my day job, we are using Github Issues and Zenhub for dev-related things. For personal (one person) projects, I have a physical whiteboard near my desk.
Honestly I just used google docs, excel, keep to track. I will put to-do items in keep. Big features I will elaborate in the google docs. Free and simple. Btw, if you want to have video log to track your progress, I welcome you to join https://lonely.dev community. It will be a great place to have self documentary videos talking about your work and life. You will have fun there 😊
I love using Gantt charts to make a roadmap (I generally use JIRA with the WBS-gantt plugin, but any free gantt software / application will do). This really helps with creating and sticking to a vision for your project.
I find it hard to find the motivation to work on a project when there is no clear vision ahead.
