The idea and story of making, from open source libraries to full-grown application.

All started years ago...

Hi there, my name is Bohdan and reading source code is my hobby and passion.

Few years ago I decided to learn React source code. It took quite some time, but as a result I published the open-source book “Under the hood ReactJs” which explains entire codebase with flowcharts.

First thing I realised after that I need some tool to generate flow chart images from JavaScript code. So a year later I built an open-source tool for that called “js2flowchart” which automatically generates flowcharts from JavaScript code.

Later, I discovered I still need something broader to cover entire codebase, something that can help marking important places in code, connections between files, etc. That's why I built “codecrumbs” (name is derived from “code” and “breadcrumb”). You can check out open-source version on Github.

While keep adding more features and learning more about the topic I got the vision that just a "library" won't solve it, it's time to step up the game and build an application with more systematic approach...
