(a small idea to guide the day’s work)

Imperfect is ok. Even desirable!


(what do I plan to do)

  • Implement pic story saving and sharing feature, user should be able to:
    1. Make a story
    2. Give it a title
    3. Save that story
    4. Reach goal: access the “public” version of that story with a URL
    5. Reach goal: reload a saved story for further editing, saving, etc.

What I got done

(plan != reality)

Quite a lot actually! We got most of the above finished:

  • User can make a story
  • Give it a name
  • Save it to the DB
  • AND access it via a custom URL (reach goal number one)

So I’m pretty pleased 😊

For next time

  • Reload a saved story from the DB for further editing
  • Some small stuff like adding a custom URL to the database object based on the title (currently it’s hardcoded functionality, but URL should be based on story title).
