Projects

react-easy-crop

A React component to crop images with easy interactions. I've started to implement this component at work for the new listing form of Ricardo.ch.
Then, I thought it was a cool project and I decided to continue working on it on my personal time and make it open-source in agreement with my employer.

AngularJS Slider

This is the most used slider directive for AngularJS 1.X with more than 1 million downloads on NPM.
I did not start this project, but I am the main contributor since July 2015. Since then I have added many features, full test coverage, a documentation website and handle all issues and pull requests.
This is a web app I built as a student to create songs playlists. The main features are:
  • Playback using Youtube APIs
  • Lyrics display
  • Similar songs radio
  • Playlist sharing
