DNSControl

DNSControl is a way to manage your DNS entries centralized in code. Even if they span multiple providers. I made the provider to let DNSControl work with TransIP. On top of that created some fixes for open issues in DNSControl. DNSControl is a project maintained and created by the folks from StackExchange, I merely submitted some code.

    Littledivelog (Uploader) v3

    A client to upload dives read from a dive computer to my littledivelog server. This is a rewrite of my dive uploader in Javascript with electron to allow for cross platform compatibility. It uses React with styled-components for the front-end with redux for state management and redux-saga to handle side-effects. I ended up liking React more than I expected, while liking redux, less than I expected. Redux certainly is nice tech, but something I had a hard time with, is the fact that there API enabled you to quickly create a mess. The API doesn't encourage good practices, there documentation doesn't state good practices and there 'toolbox' leaves gaps in there functionality (which redux saga does solve) which again encouraging bad practices.
