Man.. we don't need another todo app. :p
Actually, I was thinking of making an ios app that would do time tracking locally. Every app I find does this through a server, which makes it wayyyy slower and costlier (there's no need for an api in this. A sqlite db should be capable enough to handle this in the client). The business model could be upfront payment for the app... then use it without internet. :D

Agreed though, TODO apps are kinda boring.

Something related to productivity perhaps? I mean, many are working from home these days. Interested to hear ideas as well. Subbed. :D
Sneakers bot, crypto trading bots.... mostly done that as last projects

What technology we want to build with? What tech stack you will suggest?
By the way I searched unsaturated tech stack on Google , it started giving me results like unsaturated fat, colostral etc.
Google is getting dummer every day.

Either I will go full php route with Yii2 (which would be easier to maintain as a single repo), or I will go ReactJS route, with preferably Ruby on Rails on the backend (rails with react webpack will keep it in a single repo too... same as yii2). For the db, postgresql/mysql will do the job just fine.
Yii2 would probably be quicker to code, but ROR will be easier to scale up (i think).
If I have to make an app, I will go React Native way with sqlite db (check my reply to javabro).

If I want to build something as quickly as possible - I'll choose a JS Stack. (react/express).

But I think rust-lang is going to blow up. It has all the benefits of C, without the memory leaks.

Yes , clients wants speed and inexpensive. And we want complete the project fast and confirmed golive so that we can put it on our portfolio and get more clients.

Which have got more chances of going live fast? Web app, android app or Saas or any other form of application you can think of.

You should checkout react-native-web.
With one codebase, you will have a webapp, and android app and an ios app. Very steep learning curve. But it is totally worth it.

Expo actually eases the RN part quite a lot. Never really tried the rn-web, but it does look interesting. :D
I hope I can keep the same JSX elements like <Text> or <Button> etc.

The latest expo uses react-native-web under the hood. You get a web app out of the box. :D
And yes, you can use the same jsx elements for the most part.

Cool!! That's an eye opener to be honest. I wouldn't bother making another project just for the web. Thanks man. :D
I'm currently building a very complicated app from this. There are a lot of gotchas. And not much help if you stuck in something. Don't use it for any client projects just yet. But it is definitely worth it to keep an eye on.

This could be a big problem. It could result in cancellation and bad reviews.
On fiverr I searched for "react native" and found bunch of gigs on page 1 with lots of reviews which is a good sign. But I found a lot of gigs with 1 and 2 reviews which are obviously fake which tells me theres a lot of completion in this technology stack.
but
when i search for "expo native react" the field is wide open , no second page with "expo native react" in title.
SO
I will need to sub-niche it. like may be "react native or flutter" "react native and flutter" or "expo native react" or something like that ?

React native/expo is an awesome solution. Make no mistake about that. I have finished an app already and it went live in app store/play store.

Javabro was probably talking about react native web, and not react native as a whole. Also, fiverr is for small projects, right? Don't offer react native apps there lol.
