Awyisser.com is an automatic “Aw Yiss” comic generator based on a Kate Beaton comic. The story behind it is simple: I was watching “Mean Girls” and decided that it needed to exist*.

Awyisser was the perfect experimentation ground to learn more about the new AngularJS framework, along with experimenting with building a backend API server with NodeJS. To make the generated comics feel more refined, I created a bespoke typeface based on Kate Beaton’s handwriting.

Since launch, product teams around the world have created Slack integrations to bring Awyisser into their conversations, and Awyisser has generated more than 30,000 public “Aw Yiss” comics.

* That’s how all successful products get started, right?
