Introducing SearchGull

The app is also a SPA and a PWA as well as a serverless app on an S3 bucket on AWS. Hitting all of the buzzwords in one fell swoop!

(A special thanks to Adam for helping me put the animation table together last weekend.) Now all I have to do is the work. I took a picture because this is likely the last time that space will be neat for a while. (Sorry, De. 😉 )
