Recent activities

It's been almost a month since I wrote a miscellaneous talk. It's just after class and I'm back in the dormitory, so I'm taking the time to write something.

During the National Day holiday, I stayed at school instead of going home, which saved me some money. During this period, I basically spent my days idling and completed some experimental reports that I needed to finish in the future. And now it's almost the end of the month, and since then, I haven't touched any experimental reports.

Let me talk about what I have been doing recently. Just recently, about half a month ago, when I was browsing Bilibili, I discovered a master, who is also a front-end developer. He posted some reproductions of very beautiful and cool design drafts. I learned a bit from them, and most importantly, there was a famous website mentioned in the comments where famous designers hang out. It's full of stunning design drafts (but only images or videos, no resources or Sketch prototypes, so you can't slice them). For the next few days, I was browsing that website, looking for inspiration. I have also been working on the backend for a long time, but I feel like I haven't made much progress since the summer vacation. It's all the same, writing rough frameworks and repetitive logical code. I'm tired of it and I haven't made any progress.

A few days ago, I came up with an idea, which is "Moment". I don't know how I came up with this name, I just thought it sounded good starting with "M". Usually, I would think about writing the backend first, defining the interfaces and the data to be returned. But this time, I didn't want to write the backend, it's too boring. So I went to Dribbble to look for inspiration (by the way, Dribbble is the website I mentioned earlier, and I recommend it to front-end developers who lack inspiration like me. You'll be surprised by the results). I searched for "timeline" and the first few results looked good. Then, I chose this design.


It took me about 5 days from design to basic completion.

Final Thoughts#

I have been learning front-end development for a few months now, from being clueless at the beginning to gradually being able to write some layouts. I have been making progress step by step without anyone guiding me, relying solely on my own exploration. I have forgotten how I got started, but it was definitely not easy. I didn't even know about front-end engineering or the three major front-end frameworks back then. When I saw that someone's blog source code was only a few lines but rendered so much content, I was amazed because I didn't know Vue or even Webpack. In the blink of an eye, a few months have passed, and now I can use Vue to write more visually appealing pages, and I'm slowly getting familiar with front-end engineering tools like Vue-cli. Learning is indeed not an easy task, but if you don't learn, you can only marvel at others forever.
