I’ve built an alternative web interface for Beeminder—check it out!
The Beeminder web interface is not bad, but I wanted to try out a few ideas for how the interface could work. My overall goal here is to have about the same features as the Android app—it’s not a complete replacement for the Beeminder site, but rather it’s a convenient interface for the most useful day to day functionality (seeing what the status of each of your goals is, adding datapoints, and so forth.)
One thing I’m aiming for here is for this site to be very mobile friendly. The Beeminder website is OK on mobile, but you’d still want to have a native mobile app. Altbee aims to be good enough on mobile that it can be a complete replacement for having the mobile app installed on your phone at all. (It doesn’t do push notifications, though, or at least not yet. So you might still want to have the mobile app for that.)
I’m also aiming for Altbee to be fast. I think I’ve managed to make it be a fair bit snappier in many cases than the official Beeminder web site, even though Altbee has the extra layer of needing to hit the Beeminder API for its data, through careful caching and the like.
If you’ve got ideas for features to add or ways for it to improve, let me know! I certainly intend to add new features to it over time—including both those features which have equivalents in the official Beeminder web interface and those which are completely original.
