I actually prefer your WIP short description "Dip into the sea of open-source knowledge."

Be more specific, how exactly does it benefit a developer?

The English doesn't quite make sense in the sub title. Change "There are thousands of ways to write an app. codelib.code helps you find how world use tools and give you the inspiration for building better software." to "There are thousands of ways to write an app. codelib.code helps you find how the world uses tools and gives you the inspiration for building better software."

So the app is to see how other apps use certain javascript libraries? I think the "Knowledge at your fingertips" would be better being more specific, a concise sentence saying how your app helps a developer.

Thanks for your feedback!
Would you say phrase "App solutions at your fingertips" sounds like a better fit?

Thank you so much for your feedback, it's right on point about what my landing page was missing. I'm changing a lot of the content now :)

Can I keep my streak if I don't post on weekends?

I feel like setting the amount of days you want to get stuff done on in advance and then using the streaks as a way to stick to that. So like you say you want to get things down 5/7 days and then your streak continues unless you miss three days in one week. I tried to keep up a streak initially, but with a baby there were days when it simply was not possible to even get near my laptop.

Roast: Juggler.dev - Intuitive tool to find the most efficient texts on your landing site

For some context: I clicked through to the site with no knowledge of what your app did. For me I couldn't quite determine the purpose well enough with the main CTA text "Intuitive tool to find the most efficient texts on your site" I guess what it is missing to me is what is the goal, as the text would only be efficient depending on the goal. I feel like it needs more emphasis on what pain point it is trying to solve for your target audience.

🔎 You can now search through WIP

I think search could belong in the header. Perhaps in the center. I don't think people will discover it in the more menu. Would be cool if you extended it in future to be work like the wip menu bar app as well, so if you are logged in you could create/complete todos from it.

Yes, definitely want to move it to a more prominent place. Top bar seems reasonable.

Love the idea to add /commands to it. We already have a compose option on the homepage (or anywhere on the page by pressing N), but integrating it into that always-visible search bar would make it more discoverable.

Good idea on finding others who have implemented something before
