#musiciansofmastodon : Do you log your practice time? Tell me about the app or home-grown cobbled together system you use. (boosts +)
(This post brought to you by me having just dusted off the half-baked Django logging app I wrote about a year ago, used for a couple of months, then got distracted by some shiny thing) #fediversemusic
(I need to implement invite codes and a hard limit on user accounts, at which point I’ll open this up #onhere)
...current state: warily leaning towards refactoring and combining the auth and DB layer to use Supabase, which is in that queasy "technically it's a bunch of open source tools stacked up in a trenchcoat and you can self-host it with Docker, but you know sooner or later you're probably going to just pay us for hosting" gray area, but it's a damn compelling suite built on top of postgresql.
🤯 it occurred to me just now to look and see if https://hooktheory.com has an API, and they do, and it should be possible to add a supabase auth provider to the app, meaning you could log in with your hooktheory account and seamlessly have access to a hypothetical in-app chord progression generator powered by their data.
(… which would be pretty cool but would require a paid Hooktheory account, so 😕)
