CloverQuotes.com thumb

CloverQuotes.com

Famous quotes by famous authors. Inspiration and Knowledge.
Ruby on Rails, Design, MySQL, Twilio SMS API, PayPal transactional payments

The goal of this project was to create the best database of famous quotes. Furthermore, it had to have modern and slick design in contrast with all popular quotations sites that have old and ugly designs overwhelmed with advertisements. I took the site down in 2014 as it could not gain any traction. The lesson learned here is that these kind of websites are all about SEO and not quality of the website.

Twitlexa.com thumb

Twitlexa.com

Charts for twitter users
Ruby on Rails, Design, Logo, Twitter API, MondoDB, Resque, Rrrdtool, Google Chart Tools, jQuery

Twitlexa = Twitter + Alexa. The goal of this project was to give to people simple and useful statistics about their followers, friends and status counts. I stopped the project because it was using lots of resources and couldn’t generate enough money. Twitlexa.com was crawling about 600 000 Twitter accounts on a daily basis. I was using Resque for queueing system and MondoDB/RRD tool for storing the data. While working on this project, I learned Google Chart Tools and Resque. Besides, I gained more experience with RRD tool, MongoDB, and jQuery.

FFind.net thumb

FFind.net

Easily find and organize YouTube music clips
Ruby on Rails, Design, Logo, MySQL, MongoDB, YouTube API, jQuery

The idea of this project was to be a simple and efficient online music player for YouTube videos, something like WinAmp. It was targeted for home parties. So, people could search for videos and enqueue results without stopping the current clip. I stopped working on the project as it did not have any monetization stream. While working on FFind.net, I learned two new things – the YouTube API and MongoDB. Moreover, I advanced with my jQuery skills.
