Hi, I’m Tim, a software developer from the North West UK. I’ve been working
with the web since an early age and care deeply for open-source and the open web.
Recently I’ve been building Trunk, a
self-hosted notes management app, similar to Evernote.
I’ve worked with Go, Node.js, Swift and PHP. I’m sometimes available for
consulting work so please
get in touch
if you’d like to hear more about my services.
I've never been entirely satisfied with Evernote. The interface isn't fantastic, the sync is often unreliable and I'd rather write notes in Markdown than their custom rich text format. I've seen a lot of people with similar complaints so when I decided to move away from it several months ago, I was surprised to see there wasn't much in the way of competition.
Mines is a simple minesweeper game for iPad. It doesn't use anything special — no game engines, etc — just a lot of UIViews. There are a lot of minesweeper games for iOS but they're often overcomplicated and ugly (many of them mimicking the Windows 95 style). I find my version quite nice to play.
Manuals is a simple Linux man-page viewer for iOS. It's an app I've wanted for quite a while, so I decided to build it. I've been trying to improve my iOS skills recently and thought it was a good challenge.
Today I open-sourced my app Coffee Calculator. It's a simple app that I built in Swift. It won't be super-popular, but I needed it (in fact I use it every day) so I made it.
I've known that 123-reg are pretty awful for quite some time. Their interface is dreadful, their auto-renewal service is well-known for charging customers even when it's disabled for a particular domain and I've had a couple of arguments with them regarding their poor security practices over the years.
