I handcraft apps and websites.
My name is Eivind Lindbråten. I'm a freelance developer currently focused on app and web development, with over ten years of experience. With most projects I collaborate directly with designers and agencies, helping them implement their ideas. I think about the environmental impact of what I do, and offset the carbon footprint of my company.Send me an email→
How I develop websites
Building websites is what I have most experience with, and mostly work with on a day to day basis. I follow the ever-changing trends, and incorporate the practices I find relevant.
Frontend and backend
I enjoy both fronted and backend development. I like using the Jamstack architecture, to get a good separation of concerns.
Details and animations
Details are important to give the experience the right feeling. I love spending time creating custom animations and interaction details.
Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time. Projects are built with as low carbon footprint as possible, using the carbon calculator as a basis (https://www.websitecarbon.com). Mist as a company offset carbon emission by a factor of two.
I'm a believer in privacy, and extend that belife to the work I do. I aim to use privacy focused trackers (only if necessary), and secure and privacy focused content storage.
Next.js is my go to framework for fronted projects, micro-services and smaller backend-only projects.
Prefered (and an amazing) content platform. The studio is React based, which makes it easy to also share components, models or other functionality between frontend, api's and content storage.
Where it is fitting, I really like to write css using Tailwind. It greatly increases the speed at which I write my CSS, and gives a cohesive story for structuring and naming things.
It's important to follow good practices for speed, accessibility and SEO. I use the Lighthouse metric (https://lighthouse-metrics.com) for measuring this, and always aim to get a score of 100 out of 100.
I can offer hosting for the entire project, billed montly or yearly. Hosting is done through Vercel and Sanity. I get volume discounts so I can offer a good price.
I have experience with a great set of other tools, which I include in the project when nececarry. Video streaming and conversion is done through Mux, mail handeling through Postmark and privacy focused tracking through Fathom.
How I develop apps
Native app development is a passion of mine. My side project is building an app for iOS and macOS. I've worked on a couple of small and large commercial apps, including an iPad augmented reality game.
Apps are written in Native Swift, as I believe this produces the most performant and highest quality apps, with best of class system integrations.
I make apps for the entire Apple eco-system, including iOS, macOS, watchOS, ARKit and more.
The Composable Architecture (TCA)
Preferably I use PointFree's TCA for state management, to get a cohesive story for handeling and manipulating state.
I'm currently working on my own app, a time tracker, nativly written for iOS and macOS using SwiftUI and TCA.
Companies I've worked with
Over the years I've been lucky to work with many great companies. This is a brief selection. Many of these I have an ongoing relationship where we've worked on multiple projects together.
