    What makes you think there's a quick way to do this? All evidence seems to indicate it's a painful, pretty random, and non-reproducible process…

    The real secret if that nearly every "right thing" someone built was the "wrong thing" for the first few years of its existence.

    predictive snapping, curve bending, and angle locking

    Angle locking has me intrigued. I've never heard of any design app supporting this, usually you have to create your own grid first and then rely on auto-snapping. Being able to guarantee that your shapes only feature, say, 45º angles would be really powerful.

    How I imagine product meetings at MailChimp:

    • Manager: So we've pretty much perfected email sending. What else should we work on?
    • Employee #1: Well actually, customers have been complaining about the dashboard UI and…
    • Manager: I know! We'll make a mailchimp-themed paperboy game! It'll be so cool!
    • Employee #2: Sure, but what about the API update that…
    • Manager: You'll play as the monkey! I'll block out the next couple months for this right away.

    I use Feedly on web and Reeder on mobile. Both work pretty well.

    Awesome site design. I also like the idea of relating React to Figma components!

    I also listen to podcasts, works well to calm down your thoughts.

    That's fair, and I think you have the right attitude of treating it as a fun little side project. Maybe I've been made a bit too cynical by the Product Hunt/startup culture, where every new product is supposed to be this revolutionary new tool, but often just ends up being a slightly trendier version of last year's cool kid,

    You're not owed positivity just because you did something. I like the design of the project and it might evolve into something great one day, but in its current state it adds very little value practically speaking. I think it's worth calling out cookie-cutter projects like this one if only to encourage people to think a little bit more outside the (tool)box.

    I just thought it was funny to imagine everybody secretly moving to a different community without you knowing about it, like the cool kids not telling you about the after party or something.

    The truth is that the feeling that a community "was better before" is as old as online communities themselves. Complaining about it is like writing angry letters to your local weather station because it's getting colder in November.

    And what's more, he somehow managed to single-handedly accomplish this evil goal without even changing the site itself in any meaningful way! Just goes to show how nefarious he really is…
