Introducing my very early prototype to the community of Steem - a frontend with a quest to find and display gems produced by common Steem users

In looking at it, I didn't really know if there was enough data stored on the blockchain to get a truely customized "trending" feed. I was thinking an app with some additional stored data based on a users usage, tags they like etc. It would be a huge project to do it and rather expensive.
Something else that just occurred to me a "like" but not upvote button. Basically saying I like the content but don't want to spend SP on it. HF20 may actually provide a way to do that, all votes will be recorded now, I think that a vote around 1.5SP or less will be recorded as a 0 vest vote. Perhaps that is the intention for SMT's to possibly just have a like button that doesn't burn SP.

Yes, for some tags there aren't a lot of trending posts that fit all the filters. There is SteemSQL database that perhaps could work but sadly it costs these days to use.

Interesting, that's something I could use.

yep, I've been looking at it. Also thinking about spinning up some of the github projects that use postgres or one of the other db's.
Have you looked at the utopian.io stuff? I'm just starting to check them out and seems pretty good so far. It might help to pay for some dev on this project.

Utopian is for projects that are open source and linked with their system, my code is hacked together spaghetti that even I have hard time jumping back to at times, leaving me with feeling of abuse of said system if I'd decide to go that route.

Perhaps if I ever manage to get everything working and clean everything up it would make sense to go open source and let other people built upon it if they wish but knowing myself, it is rather unlikely. Getting it to work is enough for me and I'll be ready to move to see if I can make my next idea work. Of course if there'd be a lot of support, that would change things.

I'm kind of the same way, I've never worked anything open source. Then my ADHD kicks in and it usually gets left for a month, then I forget what I was doing...
