I have been dabbling with Django for a while now and have made several sites. Most the time they never make it online or even get finished. With some time on my hand I decided to make a project that was useful to me: Code Atlas.
I often found myself looking through bookmarks, old projects and text files looking for code snippets and notes solving a specific problem. Sometimes spending just as much time looking as the trying to solve the problem! If only I had sorted these notes in some format. That's where I got the idea for Code Atlas. A centralised place for keeping notes. On Code Atlas, you can create a "Notes" which are used to store anything that might be useful to know in the future. This could be a link to an article or a code snippet. These notes can be tagged and include markdown. The value comes from how easy it is to search for these notes. Never again will I have to pour over my bookmarks bar or search through heaps of forum posts. When searching, results are pulled from the Django documentation and shown along side your relevant notes.
I have deployed the site using zappa and loved how easy the process has been. I am using an EC2 instance for the database and the AWS free tier means that this setup is costing me nothing.
You can visit the site at: [https://code-atlas.me](https://code-atlas.me) as well as the project repo [here](https://github.com/Maxamuss/code-atlas).
Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated. I hope someone else other than me might find this useful. Cheers
