The Drugulator

I found this great chart showing how (relatively) safe combinations of drugs can be. I knew I could use my web development know-how to improve it, so I made it into a web app.

My web app is a pet project of mine and is constantly evolving. I do a rudimentary form of user testing on my friends whenever I make improvements. I also put the source code on GitHub for anyone to use in any way they want. This is for harm reduction and education, not profit.

Version 6

Modern refinement

This revision was built mobile-first, with a focus on simplicity.

I am extremely proud of this incarnation. I learned from the misteps of past versions and created a balanced, refined, and beautiful tool.

I encourage you to try it out.

Version 5

Smarter, faster,... sage green-er

In this revision I rebuilt the site from the ground up.

The largest change was under the hood. I replaced a fragile, hand-coded 2D JavaScript array, with a JSON file maintained by TripSit.

Version 4

For designers, by designers, for no one

Users (my friends) were unsure how to interact with this version.

When building this revision I chose to challenge myself by using only black and white. Left to my own devices, I went a little too far and usability suffered.
