Hi Everyone, the plan is to add features slowly but surely to let Readory become the one platform for written content. This feature will eventually tie-in with a feed that is coming soon -- subscribe to your favourite categories, sources, and users and you'll get a feed of the best things to read based on those attributes and global popularity. Anyways, feel free to ask me any questions here or dm me on twitter!

@johnny_boufarhat will readory accept sources from different languages?
Johnny Boufarhat
Maker
@ferminrp As we grow that's a good idea (which I hadn't thought about), at this point I think it would be overkill. Perhaps I could add "language" to the filter but it could get a little bit messy. If you have any suggestions let me know!
FerminRP
@johnny_boufarhat as long as readory doesn't include my local "sources" it wont fully cover my content needs. I obviously understand I may not be your target audience, but something to think about further down the road. If it is limited to a single language I'll always have more than one feed, or news source.

@johnny_boufarhat The links seems to be broken , it takes me to https://https//mashable.com/ instead of https://mashable.com/

I love what your doing with readory, with the speed that Readory is improving I can imagine how great this tool is going to be once there is many sources on there. The 'explore' section of the app needs a bookmark feature as currently when I find great posts I am having to search through my upvotes...

@lameece_nagib Thanks for the feedback! The bookmark feature was actually in a while ago but it wasn't that well implemented. It's on the roadworks to finish in two to three days a brand new favourites page (with collections). If you have any ideas let me know!

Feedback: It needs a one button click to the website. If there's one I can't find it, but I just want to go to the site listed and not to another page with more stats about the site. The hover scale effect temporarily blurs the text in chrome which I believe is a chrome issue, but annoying nonetheless.

@tostartafire There is one, but it is way too hidden -- when you click on the source you should see on the top right a "external link" icon. I'm going to make it way more obvious. Also I'll check out the hover scale effect, as I'm on chrome desktop - too you're talking about the "sources" page right ?
Dan Dan
@johnny_boufarhat Right -> https://www.readory.com/sources On the sources page, where you list all the sources, there should be a button to link me directly to the source/site. As is, when I click on the source card, I go to a details page and then from there I need to click on the link to go to the source/site. From the sources list page (cards), I should have both options: 1. Link to source details 2. Link directly to source (new window) ProductHunt does this. I think it's rather hidden, but it's an option.

Maker
@tostartafire Ah ok on the card, perhaps that is a good idea I'll look into it! Thanks so much for the feedback I think your right!

How are you pulling in the data from the multiple sources? dope 🚬 🚬
Johnny Boufarhat
Maker
@dredurr I'm pulling it in from three sources with a weekly cron job - Readory is built with Ruby on Rails. From there got a few algorithms to setup rank and monthly viewers based on some of the attributes we get... Thanks for the feedback!

Nice resource, willing to have more communities including Google Groups and Facebook groups. The button link to the website is broken "https://https//hackernoon.com/" – please fix
Johnny Boufarhat
Maker
@vladkorobov Just fixed it, eventually I would love to have more communities but it wouldn't be facebook and google groups. Facebook and Google have many options to find groups and also the algorithms we use to calculate worth and views unfortunately wouldn't work on the facebook and google domain. Thanks alot for the feedback

I'd love to see a category on "Making". Makezine, Hackaday, Instructables, Hackster - that sort of stuff. I think that category has a ton of smaller blogs and would be interesting to see how they stack up vs the big players.
Johnny Boufarhat
Maker
@dillon1337, I'll look into it! BTW, does it not fit within Tutorials/how-to or Entrepreneur? (clueless on those you mentioned )
Dillon Nichols
@johnny_boufarhat I guess it could fit into the tut/howto section, but it's not where I would've looked
Johnny Boufarhat
Maker
@dillon1337 Ok, I'm going to rework the categories as I think they can be improved and better clarified! Thank's for the feedback Dillon!
