This page contains the list of almost all the projects built by me. All projects have a dedicated page about them, which contains other relevant details about the project.
In order to easily filter projects based on tech stack, please checkout the Filter page (under construction). If while opening the link of some project, you get a 404, it means that the codebase is private (mainly due to academic submissions). These are made public as soon as the semester in college ends.
Hentry, is a hackathon sentry that allows organizers to provide a fair competing platform in the online events. Since plagiarism and re-use are the major problems in such submissions which ruins the spirit of hackathons, It utilizes intelligent algorithms to calculate project entropy and snapshots of participants' projects in real-time and visualizes the same for the organizers as a live graph in a pleasant user interface.
A detailed documentation with video introduction on hentry-server
- Hentry Server : web server written in TypeScript to act as the service to expose data for hentry-dashboards. Provides routes which utilize Redis-JSON and Redis-TimesSeries to return data for business logic. Handle user creation, team creation, initial dashboard data fetch and polling updates for live graphs.
- Hentry Client : CLI written in Golang utilizing go-routines for performance ⚡ which calculates project entropy and snapshots and emits them to hentry-feeder
- Hentry Feeder : micro service written in GoLang utilizing go-routines for performance, exposes a simple HTTP server to accept requests from henry-client instances running on participants' devices and write data to Redis TimeSeries Database.
- Hentry Dashboard : a responsive and dynamic single page application build using React and TailWind CSS, designed in a monochrome and minimal UI to focus on important data. Also provisions realtime graphs which render live feed of project status.
UniAuth is a super ambitious project written as an open source alternative of proprietary SSO services like Google/Facebook/Microsoft SignIn, built around the central idea of privacy, security and consent. It allows the users to maintain a profile with the details they wish, get them verified, completely isolated from their social accounts.
Applications can request specific information from the users while defining their applications, and customize the consent page as per their needs.
While users get security and privacy, developers get to utilize the client libraries written for more than half a dozen(and counting) frameworks across multiple languages. This allows anyone to integrate UniAuth into the project with minimal changes.
A detailed writeup about each of the component is out of scope of this page, please refer the github organization for more details.

- 0.4.1-Execute.ly-frontend : allows the user to upload an image, crop the required portions of the image, and send data tot he server for processing. Once received, allows the user to edit the code and re-run as required.
ACM Reverse Coding : ReverseReverse Coding is ACM-VIT's premier event, not only by the number of participants, but also by the requirements of the infra to host the entire event.
- rc-heimdall : Heimdall is the main micro-service that is responsible for user-management, ingestion of problems from endpoints, providing API endpoints for main user interface, interaction with task-runners, code submission and evaluation. Since this service basically handles all requests from the client and acts as a gate-keeper, it's named Heimdall.
- https://github.com/YashKumarVerma/rc-broadcaster : Broadcaster is a serverless function written to run on the firebase cloud to generate download links of the questions uploaded by the problem setters in the firebase console. This eliminates firebase as a dependency from other services, and also automatically scales as per the traffic experienced by the system.
- https://github.com/YashKumarVerma/rc-ide : Simple IDE built on ReactJS to act as an interface to rc-task-runner, and run programs on the task runner. This allows the participants to execute the binaries on the cloud and avoid downloading them on their local systems.
- https://github.com/YashKumarVerma/rc-task-runner : A bare bone web server which utilizes go-routines and concurrency to execute binaries on the cloud and return the result to the user in realtime. These are written to be run in clusters/pods while sitting behind a load balancer to distribute the workload and give near-realtime results.

- Coin360 : coin360 is a popular webapp which shows live data from various crypto currency feeds in realtime. It includes complex visualizations and realtime updates of bulky data. I wrote this simple prototype which demonstrated how a web application can visualize a large dataset (~25+ MB) in batches, by loading only a tiny subset of data on initial load (200-400KB) and polling for updates in batches. This allows the application to run smooth in systems with low resources.
- https://github.com/YashKumarVerma/coin360-backend : the backend which uses redis to fetch the large dataset periodically and keep a local index of each of the entry. This allows the frontend to poll for most recent value from the key-value database, and individually update this after processing the bulky dataset. Since this is done on the backend, this does not impact the application's performance.
- https://github.com/YashKumarVerma/coin360-frontend : single page application written in React to visualize the coin dashboard, showing currencies and their exchange rates. These are updated in batches, and works fluently on low-end systems.
- Attendance Application : is a portal written for internal consumption at ACM-VIT that allows the club to quickly create events, sessions and slots for attendance.
