So the elevator pitch is "femme-first anti-capitalist witchcraft portal" which is obviously going to make me loads and loads of money. But I really like the idea of playing with virtual economies and creating spaces for people to interact with each other online...I have a lot more features etc figured out and a realistic, scoped list of things I want to get done for launch, but now that I realize I'm in a place where I can get more serious about actually starting to work on this, I have to start thinking harder about how exactly I want to do it.
Because I want to do this for fun and I definitely won't have to worry about monetization, I figure it makes most sense to treat it as a learning experience, a long-term portfolio item, and make running it as enjoyable and low-impact as I can - I don't want to have to re-do the whole thing in a year.
For the back end I'm pretty sure I want to use Laravel (Laravel is what we're switching to at work, so it would be good to get some solid experience in) and I was thinking Vue for the front, just because there seems to be a bit of a lasting buzz around it, and I hear good things, but I'm open to suggestions!
