I use Esteem for Hive on Desktop and mobile but I am not a big fan of their "Followers" and "Following" list.
I mean these lists work and they are not that bad... I just feel like something is missing and not too useful to me.
Hive itself has it's own follow, follower lists but I am not into that design either.
So I kind of wanted to see what it takes make those list myself.
Beem has a ton of features so that getting a list of followers or following is very easy.
It literary takes a few minutes to get those lists.
account = Account('tomoyan') followers = account.get_followers() following = account.get_following()
Beem makes things very simple and easy. Only 3 lines of codes is what it take to get all my "friends" info.
My fugly list was pretty much done in 5 - 10 minutes.
I would like to organize my friends list so that I want to see who I am following and who are following back and vice versa... so I added a little flag in there too.
Design is hard
My list is so UGLY! I am not a design person and I don't have much art or color in me so making things pretty is the hardest thing for me.
But I like a good design though...
Ugh I can't even look at my list, plus there are some missing functions that I want to implement later on.
My design inspiration comes from Twitter UI.
I kind of like this design. It's got follow/unfollow features and the flag to tell me that who is following me and of course I can see the friends list with pictures.
Honestly I am not sure if I am doing good or I am on the right path since I don't know the modern frontend technology, what frameworks and tools to use.
Backend took 10 minutes.
Frontend took 10 hours.
I know why I like backend more than frontend... 😆
