When I first started working on Norde Source I had three reasons, in no particular order, to do it:
- I had been working on a website builder and hosting platform and realised I probably needed to scale down a bit since it was a large undertaking. Something smaller would probably be better to get the name out there.
- I had a keen interest in teaching myself Vue.js and I find the best way to learn something, for me, is to dive into the deep end with a project.
- I always had trouble discovering icon sets to buy and seeing how they would fit into my project. So I wanted a tool that would allow me to see the entire set, search, change colors, etc.. before buying and also managing the sets right there in the same app. Of course that's a bit thing so as a MVP it's just an icon manager that lets you import sets, change size, color and export.
At first I wasn't really serious about the project though. It was all just exploration and getting to know Vue.js a bit. But like it tends to happen with me I got drawn in and before I knew it I had a good foundation and couldn't back out!
