Now that it's sunk in a bit, I just want to add I'm really thankful that you chose my project out of all the great submissions! This was an amazing experience and really pushed me farther than I've gone before. The competition also drew my attention to the wonderful community that has sprung up around repl.it. I'll definitely be sticking around and doing my best to contribute.

This jam had too many good submissions, @katyadee how about a few "Honorable Mentions"??

@TheDrone7 I'm with you - picking a winner was so hard!

@antonmata it’s super creative and we spent some time playing around with what you built. Thank you for joining us in our hackathon!

katyadee (1087)

@antonmata Your project was amazing!

@hayaodeh @katyadee Thank you! I am glad that you guys enjoyed it. 😄

I was actually working on a different idea for the 1st week, but felt that it was not working the way I imagined it. Out of the blue, I had this idea of combining a roguelike game with a step sequencer. I love music as much as games, so it felt much better to work on that instead.

I know this sounds corny, but I think that lightbulb moment was a blessing. Thank you for the opportunity.

@ebest Thanks for making content for my app. I'm honored and I think I've won a prize partly because of it.

hayaodeh (142)

@Anthony_Tonev I’m so happy for you. Everyone in the community loved what you built 🤗 did you and @ebest collaborate together?

ebest (554)

@hayaodeh Nope I just had fun playing with it and giving suggestions.

Anthony_Tonev (69)

@hayaodeh The app is a digital music editor - Ebest and other talented people created music peaces for it.
At some point I had to add a database (which turned out to be pretty tricky since local files are not saved properly here on repl.it) - during the competition I received lots of contributions - from different users. Also I've created some myself, although my lack of musical talent.
Featured some of the works of Ebest and @vedprad1 in the app itself but there is more in the database - which has enough room since it takes only 430 bites on average to store a single peace.

Content or data is an essential part of this app (and any other app of that kind) - it's the sole purpose of the application. Everything created in it is like "open source" notes that you can "pull" and create something on top of them using the editing tools. Honestly without content - I have no idea how I can show that aspect of it.

This is why I credit the content-creators/users at the bottom of my submission description. They also reported some bugs and gave request for features. I'm very thankful to them for the content they have created with it.

But the actual coding and animating for the app is ONLY done by me.

ebest (554)

@Anthony_Tonev yep
jeez I'm not that talented
