I’ve been disillusioned with the direction most social networks have taken. So one day I asked myself 'what if I made my own social network'?
I decided to take it on as a fun project and a challenge: making a whole app from the ground up. This meant doing everything – design, coding, both front and back end, setting up user registrations, and getting it all online.
I had very limited experience with the back-end so I opted for a no-code BaaS platform: Supabase. I used Nuxt3, a frameework that I know well, to build the UNKB client, with Pinia for state management, and vanilla CSS for styling. In between I built an API taking advantage of Nuxt3's ability to allow server-side only code.
I plan to release a closed beta of UNKB soon.
