Various Project Ideas

In this page, I will list some project ideas that does not have a dedicated page with more details, do not hesitate to ping me if you want to have more info about what I’ve in mind :)

  • QRCode Nonogram “game”
  • Chainable universal translator that combines QRCode, pixelart, image, ascii-art, text, url, encoding, code, etc
  • Compute PI with Machine Learning
  • “” website with tools, resources
  • github bot specialized in monorepos: auto-assign labels, users, reviewers based on changed files
  • “Master piece creator”, music chords progression generator
  • Bullshit development quote generator
  • “Elevator simulator” challenge
  • “cron cli”, something between “crontab”, and “at”, the missing tool to manage everything that should run later
  • “Number adventure”, an interractive website to learn things about number in a cool way
  • P2P Present, equivalent of chat roulette for sending small presents to unknown people
  • Real Estate Aggregator + Machine Learning
  • Pangrams generator
  • “Offline-first companion” a tool or guide to setup everything so you have a good experience when you have bad or no internet (local DNS caching, local HTTP cache, offline doc, asynchronous softwares)
  • sshroulette: connect to random server
  • Small hardware or raspi to generate ascii art ads in wireless names
  • Cross-platform, lightweight, easy-to-use notification library
  • A mini tool that basically does: git init; git diff; cleanup to quickly have the power of git diff in subfolders or for volatile projects
  • sshbin, like grpc.bin or for SSH
  • proto-sql-ecosystem, protobuf plugin that generates different ORM configurations
  • go-hugo website that automatically aggregates a lot of shortcodes with demo to make it easy for everyone to share shortcodes
  • useless idea of things that use the IPP protocol to simulate a fake printer
  • Shaman/Marabout ads generator
  • “docker-pull-to-tarball” mini script
  • useless idea of fake file-system with fuse
  • a tool that take “something” as input and bruteforce different method to try to identify the format
  • fake DB backend for git
  • Next generation git crypt
  • Gotty + sshd
  • Ultra easy-to-hack (filters) HTTP proxy
  • A project that integrates homeless people by making them useful
  • Anti-theft system (mostly psychological stickers + easy-to-use process to send back something)
  • Blockchain-based docusign clone
  • web2docker, ssh2docker + gotty, that automatically creates a web shell in a docker container on the fly
  • Makefile support on Windows
  • Protect humanity from Google (Internet should not be the property of Google)
  • Find a mix between blockchain and serverless
  • “Awesome-iso” -> a collection of iso standards with implementations
  • Find a way of making open-source the best option for companies
  • protoc-event-sourcing: a collection of code generator to help manage event-sourcing
  • Wulo V2 with new constraints (cooperative mode, blockchain-based, etc)
  • The first non-technical ICO ever :)
  • Wulo like for Airbnb
  • Find a way to make the lost time lucrative; find a way of paying people for the time they need to lose (commit time etc)
  • ML training -> akinator clone
  • “Unlock in the future”: find a cryptographical way of ensuring that something will be unlocked in the future, the idea is to allow people to share a file/dump and then automatically share the unlocking key
  • Interplanetary consensus, big-latency friendly consensus
  • A tool to help people choosing the best career, maybe a tool that do some surveys and machine learning to help people avoiding the traps of choosing a career based on bad indicators (huge positive impact on humans <3)
  • Collaborative little-alchemy clone
  • Airtable Backuper tool
  • Cross service sync service to sync multiple airtables, github, etc
  • ORM to airtable sync
  • SSH-based CV
  • Ascii-art website theme
  • Motivator service -> receive a “you are awesome” message everyday
  • Port-knocking helper
  • Encrypted socks server
  • P2P VPN
  • Playing card game recognizer + ML

Volatile Blockchain / Temporary Blockchain

The idea

Merge the concepts of

  • “Connected Blockchains” (see for a good example)
  • Autonomous networks that support split & merge

To obtain a way of creating a temporary blockchain in an autonomous network that can exists over mesh network (bluetooth, isolated networks, isolated countries, etc).


  • Determine the best consensus rules that allows a smaller network to “take decisions”
  • Offer the option to automatically convert the temporary coin to a permanent coin as soon as networks are merged


  • Create a temporary blockchain for a music festival, allow people to convert their existing permanent coins to the temporary money, lose internet during the event, and then translate-back the unused temporary coins
