No-Sugar-Today.com is the #1 product of the day 🥳

Started working on a simple tool to keep myself accountable to eat less sugar.

After started using WIP.co and reading (well, listening) to Atomic Habits, started to work on forming few habits like "No laptop/coding after 7 pm", "No Sugar/Eat healthily", etc.

For the "no sugar" part, I thought it would be nice to have a public leaderboard. Since I already have a leaderboard on HIGHSCORE.domains, shouldn't take much time to build.

So bought no-sugar-today.com put together a website in an hour or so and pushed live using render.com. Took the leaderboard and other UI elements from HIGHSCORE.domains and changed the colour 😀

I spent more time on this yesterday refreshing the PH launch dashboard and sharing in communities than actually coding it 😬 In between I shipped a feature someone asked on PH - ability to edit display name since don't want to show actual first name last name present on email. Also added a page for each person on the leaderboard to show their check-in history. (Thankfully it was a Saturday!)

Right now there are 58 people signed up. 30 people checked in and on the leaderboard.

Got few suggestions and need to implement them in the coming days 😎

    Hey that's a great idea. It never cross my mind to use gamification for this kind of thing. Great work!

    1. 1

      Everything includes gamification these days 😁 I'm also planning to have badges who complete 10, 20, 30 days streak 🤘

    Congratulations on completing this from idea to implementation and monetization! Question - what is a check-in and what happens if you don't do a check-in?

    1. 1

      Thanks 😊When you go through a day without sugar, you can come to no-sugar-today.com and check-in. This would mean you completed a day without eating sugar.

      You would also get reminders via email.

      Let's say you checked in for 20 days and missed check-in 10 days, at the end of the month, it should show your streak as 20 days. The new streak count starts each month. The goal is to achieve 30 days without sugar every month 😎

      Thanks for asking! Now I know I have to add a few more text on the website to make more clear what this is about.

        Thanks for the reply. Keep it up!

      2. 1

        By the way, disabling monetization for now. It was mainly added to avoid spam accounts.

      thanks for the support 😇

  3. 2

    This is very inspiring! I'm into habits for a long time and also read Atomic Habits recently. Congratz to build something like this. 👏

      Glad you liked it 😇 . Are you on a keto or other no-sugar diet?

      1. 2

        Not quite but if I do it in the future, I'll certainly have your product in mind!
