Finished MVP

Nicolas Granja @ngranja19

It took 3 weeks, but I'm finally done building the minimum viable product for Track My Audience.

I built it with ExpressJS (Node) for the Backend and VueJs + Bulma for FrontEnd. For the DB choose Mysql, and I used some useful tools as Nodemailer + Handlebars to send the emails, and Bull to handle the job queues. I would love to answer any technical questions if you have any.

This is the very first version, a very simple app, that sends directly to your inbox a report showing the followers (or subscribers, views, etc) you have in your accounts. Also, it saves the historical data, so it shows how much your audience has grown from the last report.
I decided to implement it in this way, with reports delivered to my email, because I don’t want another app to remember, I don’t want to have to log in and check metrics in another analytic dashboard. I prefer to receive a scheduled report that I could check when I read my emails. Easy and simple. I tell you, is really exciting to check your emails and see you have received a new report, willing to see how your audience is growing.
As I really enjoyed the result, I decided to share it with the world and productize it. Is FREE, but I added a premium plan, to see if I can make some money with it.
