I present, Pigeonalytics.
My father has been a pigeon fancier for as long as I can remember. As such, it’s no wonder that one of the first big apps I build has to do with pigeon racing.
The art of keeping pigeons is usually related to old people. That is not really wrong, if you know that in Belgium about 75% of pigeon fanciers are over 65 years old.
How do old people store their data? They write it in little notebooks, and that’s exactly how my father goes about his data. As I got older I became more interested in pigeons, especially their results. But because I had to keep looking up all the results in these little notebooks, this quickly started to annoy me.
Out of my frustration Pigeonalytics was born.
In it’s essence it’s just a glorified notebook database, with a shiny userinterface. The back-end was entirely crafted within the Laravel PHP framework, and for the front-end I chose Vue and Vuetify
