I'm writing some examples for using my UIX library.

It's unexpectedly challenging. I've created real world apps using it in less time than this.

The difficult bit is making it not feel too contrived while at the same time making the code simple enough to understand.

It's not writing simple code that's difficult, it's coming up with a simple application, that's nevertheless complicated enough to illustrate core concepts.

It's so much easier when I have a direct purpose to my application, rather than dealing in the meta and writing it for its own sake. It makes me feel rudderless. Like, what is it even supposed to do other than exist? Confused | :confused:
