How I made a useless tool and the reactions made my sunday better


Last night I had an idea, which made me stay up two hours longer than I wanted. I built a useless tool: lysbilder, the slide system no one needed.

Today I tweeted about it and then went out to enjoy the day a bit:

@badboy_: I might have built a very useless slideshow tool on top of rustdoc, generated from code documentation, linked by trait implementations.

Please don’t use it¹.

¹: however, I will use it once.

Quickly I got some responses:

@myriamjessier: I laughed. It was good enough to retweet just because of that.

and

@QuietMisdreavus: i love this so much

Those made me smile and made my sunday a bit better. :)
