Over the years, I've left a long trail of personal projects, quite a few of them in a half-baked state. Most of them are just curiosities, but maybe some could be interesting or inspiring to others.
Recense was a bookmarking service. A kind of minimalistic Pinboard, if you like. I even bought the recen.se domain for a while. After having only two active users for several months (and I'm including myself here), I decided to shut it down. The code should still work, though!
I still like how it proves you can build a useful and performant web service without ever having to touch a database.
I use Obsidian as a way to keep an organized database of things I'm interested in, or want to remember. As part of that, I use a lightweight Zettlekasten-like note-taking method. Using Obsidian directly for this was a bit cumbersome, so I built a dead-simple Android app that did it for me. It is entirely hardcoded to my use case (even down to specific file paths), so it won't be directly usable by most people, but it could be a starting point for someone else to build upon.

Terminal rendering backend for Dear ImGui
This was just a prototype I whipped together in a couple of days. An interesting idea, but the difficult part is actually integrating this into a full application. It's probably OK-ish if you have the luxury of being able to build your entire application around this library, but if not, it seemed like it would require a ton of refactoring on the library to allow for a more sensible integration.

Small web page to help find minimax polynomial approximations to functions using the Remez algorithm. You can find the website here. And the source code here.
During 2015 I worked on a 2.5D version of floosp, a game prototype I built earlier that year . There's an article explaining the lighting system here
This is a game prototype. You can play an HTML5 demo here. It's all programmed in C from scratch, and the HTML5 port was done with emscripten.
Gameplay is OK-ish, but graphics are total programmer-art, and I'd still have to create a lot more levels to turn it into a proper game.
