Kia ora e hoa,
I want to introduce something special that I have been working on.
It is a web application useful to optometrists and optical dispensers.
It's called OptomCalc. Check it out!
I want to learn how to create a website using Django and 'productionise' it.
I do these calculations at work. There are resources available, but I wanted to build my own.
I have a motivation to learn and a problem to solve. Perfect!
Here is the website live: https://optomcalc.shivan.xyz
Here is a video demonstrating how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CZNr_l9UuI
Here is most of the code: https://github.com/ShivanS93/optomcalc
There is code above this that productionises (using other technologies like a virtual machine, NGINX, gunicorn, docker), but it's a bit messy.
In the future, I'll write a blog post about this.
Would you mind letting me know if you have any ideas or feedback?
Thanks for reading, and all the best for the week ahead.
