My September side project was to create a web site that would make it easier to compare note taking apps -- you can see the result at https://www.noteapps.info. In the launch notes for the site, I use Line Impact to help summarize the evolution of the project. That section is being re-posted here, for the purposes of comparison with others who are trying to hone their intuition about "how much Line Impact should X project require?"
As a whole, the code that has gone into building this small app amounted to 17k Line Impact so far. Something on the order of 10-20k Line Impact seems to be the typical range for building minimally interactive sites like blogs or Shopify stores.
Here was NoteApps journey into existence through the lens of GitClear:
That 85 LI/hour in NoteApps compares to 48 LI/hour when working on GitClear itself (my "day job" developer role). Even though working on GitClear is very satisfying, working on NoteApps feels more fun -- there seems to be a correlation between the rate at which Line Impact is generated and the enjoyment of the development.
