I'm assuming that this website is for development and testing purposes only, and that later you will move those into the app (no cloud required), right?

rant about foss nerds and the software industry
It’s a great day to dunk on some chud-ass foss nerds. Let me tell you: I read the GNU manifesto when I was just starting my career. We were supposed to be increasing access to software for everyone! In the intervening 20-plus years, “open source” is used mostly by huge companies to save money, RMS has literally eaten his own feet, and the software industry is full of self important racists who think they’re in a meritocracy. Burn it all down.
Berkeley burrito-delivery bot purported to be using 'advanced neural network' is actually remotely piloted by Colombians, who are paid $2 per hour.
Welcome to capitalism, where tech startups fake 'genius' AI using hidden POC sweatshop labor in a 'black box' to rake in profits.
"AI, games, Amazon, it's all made with magic! In our magic black box!"
"What's in it?"
"Nevermind, just eat your kale salad and let's do yoga!"
*Open box, find a sweatshop*

We're all lost at some time.
When I was 18-22, I learned most the boys I grew up with were gay. Made me wonder: am I? I mean, I like girls but WTF? It took YEARS to sort.
Would have been nice to have folks to SAFELY talk to & help me figure out that no, my traumas paralleled theirs.
That stuff shouldn't follow me 30 years later. It shouldn't follow today's youth either.
I LOVE that folks here can safely get the help that I needed.

Anyway, I'm concerned.
I realized the other day that there's not a single organization or company within the world of free software that I trust wholly, and that's a bad place to be in when I am depending on those organizations to audit the code that runs on my machines.
For years, I supported the ideological mission of the FSF from a distance, without knowing much about RMS as a person.
The more I get to see behind the curtain of the FSF, the less I am inclined to trust their decisions.
Just another cube in a red jumpsuit.
