I made a trip to Italy recently, and on the plane I started thinking of a coding problem I was working on at Weld.
I had a rough solution, but I wanted to express it as an algorithm. I didn’t want to boot up my laptop and go into full coding mode—I just wanted to play around with this algorithm.
So, when I got to my hotel, I started coding on a small app to do just that. The result: Pocket Coder:
I tried the first version on my return flight to Stockholm a few days later. It was rough but did what it was designed to do: allowing me to test and tweak my algorithm without opening my computer.
Pocket Coder comes loaded with Lodash and JQuery, which are tools I use on a daily basis.
It also has a small library of frequently used code snippets.
Finally, it comes with a built-in SVG canvas (powered by SVG.js) for easy drawing.
Download the app and let me know what you think!
