Show HN: Figr.app – a real time, multi-user, notepad style calculator

Hi all. Figr's a side project I've been working on to get back into coding after being in management the last couple years. I decided to create it as I love using other notepad style calculators i.e. Soulver, Numi, etc, but was always frustrated there wasn't an online version to share and collaborate like Google Docs.

It's a little hard to explain but I've got some examples which are hopefully relevant to the community

- https://www.figr.app/s/RUNWAY - An example to work out your burn rate / runway - https://www.figr.app/s/LTVCAC - An LTV/CAC calculator

Has been a fun project to work on, and a great way to see where modern web stacks are currently at. Of course opened to feedback, whether it be technical or product related.

Thanks!

Congrats on shipping. I like the product.

What are your plans on developing this further? Who do you see as a potential user of this product? How does the product intend on making money and remaining profitable?

I made something similar - replpad[1], a real time notepad style repl. Not multi-user, though.

Damn that looks fucking good.

Edit: I wonder if it can display into charts, or work with date and time, or send notifications.

For example:

Netflix $5 - Due every 5th of month - Alert me on email / sms

Laundry - Due every monday

Exercise - Every day 7pm

I really like the product, but the wording, emojis, and highlighting on the landing page really put me off for some reason. I had the same with y.at.

It's hard to take something like that seriously. However, if that's something that people like nowadays, more power to them.
