What we do when we are not working for clients

Menu

We love every working day, but our Friday afternoons are special.

That's when we dabble in non-client projects. It's all experimental and innovative stuff. So our developers can test, play, and learn – and maybe pick up new skills somewhere down the line.

We are very happy about these projects and if you are too, we ask you to give the charities below a boost. All of them are very unique, local charities that could use a little help. A small effort with a big impact. Be sure to check them out, they're absolutely worth it <3

Reflect

Coaching your colleague's

Reflect is madewithlove's internal peer-to-peer feedback tool. The goal is to help colleagues give and receive feedback to each other.

We've been using and fine-tuning this tool internally for a couple of years already. Because of positive reactions, we plan on making Reflect multi-tenant so our clients can start to use it as well.

ChangeHub

Manage your change logs

A software release tool, integrated with GitHub to automatically generate release notes for developers, project managers, or any other stakeholders. ChangeHub grew out of an internal need to follow up releases of our projects. The initial version was built during a hackathon, and we've been constantly improving the product ever since.

Htaccess Tester

Helping people debug complex rules

A well known open-source tool in the developer community that can test otherwise pesky htaccess rewrite rules. We've recently added support for GitHub actions and the CLI.

Invox

Invoicing made easy

Stop spending time on the manually processing of incoming invoices. Have suppliers send their invoices directly to your Invox email address.

We use machine learning to understand the details on the invoice so the more invoices you process, the smarter your Invox gets. Even better: your invoices are safely stored and encrypted in the cloud.

Open-source projects

Not all our Friyay explorations become stand-alone products. We also love contributing to the open-source community. Here are a few tools we are proud of.
Feel free to use them.

Semver

A handy Packagist version constraint tester

Semver is an educational tool to better understand how Composer and Semver translate version constraints. It's inspired by the NPM semver calculator and operates on the same principle: it allows to see which versions of a given package would match a provided constraint.
