A Vue.js web app, powered by a Go backend, that went viral in April 2021.

At its peak, we were serving around 3,500 requests/second and had around 1.4 million unique visitors.

Built with Ed Hails and Josh O’Sullivan.

Frontend

Primarily I worked on the frontend of the site, including converting it from a vanilla JS app to a Vue app when we decided to implement more advanced functionality. We used howler.js, a library which reduces play latency and irons out the many quirks of HTML audio.

Backend

The backend is powered by a Go app, a full writeup is coming soon.
