Inspiredown is a simple weekend-ish project to build a simple customizable countdown timer with an inspirational picture as a background. I built it in the run up to my summer off after MakerBot.


Inspiredown is simple, but it does have some clever bits.

  • Built entirely as client side.
  • Uses Firebase as the backend.
  • Tries to be as mobile friendly as possible
  • Resizes and iconifies the image you supply in a hidden canvas (if CORS allows)
