One of the most efficient ways to grow as a developer is to simply build as often as possible. Sharpen your front-end skills by building the following apps.

Here are five front-end ideas you can start building today.


1. Notion Clone

The Notion app improves workflow for docs, tasks, lets you create to-do tasks, and sync all data between devices, such as your mobile phone, tablet, and laptop.

2. Repl.it Clone

Repl.it is a real-time collaborative code-editing tool. You can choose between different languages like JavaScript, Python, and Go, and execute code in the browser environment.

Useful for code interviews or quick demos. Pretty neat!

3. Google Photos Clone

Google Photos is a photo-sharing and storage service developed by Google.

Uploading, cropping, and in-general working with pictures is key to any modern application. Users want to upload avatars, share cat pictures — it’s important you know how to work images efficiently.
