Hi Magnus,

thank you very much for your feedback!

I'm trying to keep things simple for now, but I'll think about your
suggestions (and thank you for pointing those out).

Did you have the chance to look at guide? I'd love to get your feedback on
the content, if you have time.

Thanks again!

Just had a quick look and things that I notice are:

1. Keep your source in a VCS like gitlab/github/etc?
2. It would be nice of you to put a copyright notice in the source so
users know what they may do with the source.
3. Please do create a proper package for it so you can publish it to

As someone who's worked at multiple proprietary software companies,
having a roadmap doesn't magically make code happen.
