Finished (super rough) MVP in 1 day

Barin

I read somewhere that if you are not ashamed of your MVP then you launched too late.

This is why this MVP still has wet paint that needs to be dried, but oh well.

I also thought that might as well make it fun, and used an unknown to me tool to build it. I'm a Laravel/ReactJS dev by day, but for this MVP I decided to go with Svelte + Sapper.

To say I was pleasantly surprised with the development process would be an understatement.
