Creator / December 2020 - Present
Sutle is a platform for saving and organizing online resources into a directed learning path. It helps you to save resources you found useful online, and craft your own learning path that you can share with others.
Sutle is the first side project I made after college. It started as a TypeGraphQL tutorial app then became sutle.io. After building the first version of Sutle, I decided to launch it. It then got featured on Product Hunt. With it, I gained some experience in building and shipping a fully functioning web application.
Moving forward to 2022, I was dissatisfied with the tech stack I built it with. I wanted to move fast and use a tech stack I'm most comfortable working with. With that, I decided to do a rewrite and redesign of Sutle.
The tech stack used in Sutle Beta are:
- Rails - Ruby MVC framework.
- PostgreSQL - object-relational database system.
- NextJS - ReactJS framework.
- TailwindCSS - utility-first CSS framework.
It also uses the following services:
- Vercel - for front-end deployment.
- Railway - for back-end deployment.
- Postmark - for sending emails.
- Plausible - for analytics.
- Sentry - for error reporting.
- Paddle - for payments.
The Intial Version - Sutle Alpha
The initial version of Sutle was built with TypeGraphQL, NodeJS, PostgreSQL, NextJS, ReactJS, Stitches and Radix UI. Though later in beta, I replaced the backend with Rails, and the front-end styling solution with TailwindCSS.
