How I Started This Project
I spent my first week thinking about the idea. Then the second week I started making designs of how my actual web app will look when users will be using it.
Spent three to five days on the designs in the second week.
You can find all my wireframes and designs for the project here at the below link

Then after finalizing the designs, Mid 2nd week I started analysing all the tech stack which I will be using for this project. I finalized the following tech stack.
Tech Stack I Used
Tailwind CSS - for Styling
React-DND - for drag and drop functionality
Formik and yup - for forms and validation
Shadcn UI Components
In the third week, I started developing the project. I started with the authentication first. It was a really good experience learning Appwrite and integrating it into the project.
After authentication, I started making my dashboard and builder page according to the designs. Following are some of the challenges I faced while making this web app.
Building FormVibe was an exhilarating journey filled with numerous challenges and learning opportunities. Throughout the development process, I encountered a series of obstacles that required careful analysis, innovative solutions, and the utilization of cutting-edge technologies.
One of the initial challenges I faced was implementing drag-and-drop functionality. As an integral feature of FormVibe, it was crucial to find an efficient and reliable solution. After thorough research and experimentation, I discovered React DnD, a powerful library that enabled the seamless integration of drag-and-drop capabilities into the application. Leveraging this library, I successfully incorporated intuitive drag-and-drop interactions, allowing users to effortlessly create their customized forms within FormVibe.
Another significant challenge I encountered revolved around rendering the forms and making them editable for customization. Achieving a dynamic and user-friendly interface was paramount. I delved into exploring various techniques and patterns to accomplish this goal. By leveraging React's component-based architecture and state management, I devised an ingenious solution that allowed users to manipulate and customize their forms with ease. The ability to add, edit, and remove form elements became a seamless and intuitive process, empowering users to tailor their forms to their unique needs.
In addition to form creation, handling user responses was yet another obstacle I had to overcome. It was imperative to design a robust mechanism that would efficiently collect, store, and manage the data submitted by users.
Furthermore, offering full customization of forms was a critical aspect of FormVibe. I strived to provide users with an extensive range of customization options, allowing them to create forms that aligned precisely with their branding and aesthetic preferences. Implementing this level of flexibility required meticulous planning and a comprehensive understanding of user requirements. By leveraging a combination of CSS frameworks, design libraries, and flexible component architectures, I enabled users to personalize their forms extensively, making FormVibe a versatile tool for a wide array of use cases.
Building FormVibe was undoubtedly an enjoyable and rewarding project, albeit filled with challenges that pushed the boundaries of my knowledge and skills.
How Appwrite Helped in this Project
As a developer who has explored various BaaS and cloud solutions, I can confidently say that Appwrite stands out from the crowd with its exceptional simplicity and user-friendly experience. Having used platforms like Firebase in the past, I have come to appreciate Appwrite's seamless integration process and intuitive console, making it my top choice for backend development.
During my journey with Appwrite, I had the opportunity to integrate various services, each of which proved to be a valuable addition to my projects.
The Authentication service provided a secure and straightforward way to implement login and signup functionality, ensuring that user data remains protected. With just a few lines of code, I was able to incorporate robust authentication features into my applications, saving me valuable time and effort.
Appwrite's Databases service offers a reliable and scalable solution for storing forms, user data, and responses. Its ease of use and powerful querying capabilities allowed me to efficiently manage and retrieve data, providing a seamless experience for both developers and end-users.
When it came to storing files or images, Appwrite's Storage service proved to be a game-changer. Uploading and retrieving files was a breeze, thanks to the simple API integration and robust infrastructure behind the scenes.
