Ysk is an ongoing project, still in development. It originates from 2019, when I had a rols in my school's students' union. We organized an event with a quiz game, and I was in charge of developing a solution that would allow players to answer in realtime using their phones.

When I tried to use this solution again, I realized it was highly inflexible and decided to start over and to create a more versatile tool that would allow not only to play, but also to create and edit quizzes with an aditor.

I teamed up with the talented designer Marie Cologon to create the best experience possible. While Ysk is still in development, the current version of the quiz editor is at the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) stade, thus can be tried out with a demo account (the UI is currently only available in French).

Tech stack

Building this tool as a solo developer drove me to take a monolithic approach that allows me to build the full-stack product without having to switch mental models constantly. I chose to go with Nuxt 3 for the UI and use their integrated API routes for the backend. The database is a good ol' PostgreSQL with Prisma ORM.
