Friyay projects Take a little stroll around our very own playground

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 of benefit to us or our clients somewhere down the line.

Curious about what we get up to on our friyays. Need a handy tool? Check out our open source projects and friyay tools below.

Reflect – Coach your colleagues

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.

Invox – Invoicing made easy

Stop spending time on processing incoming invoices manually. 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.

Changehub – Manage your changelogs

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.

Open-source projects

Not all our Friyay figments 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.
