Hi all –
I made a small site where people can post bootstrapped startups. My robot will go and fetch some dynamic data like Twitter followers, Product Hunt upvotes and revenue on Indie Hackers.
@raunometsa this is fantastic, congrats on the launch - i just added my product 😃
Product page updates and open data look very useful!
@graeme_fulton Wow... thanks 😻. It was a cool surprise to see my product on the front page of PH when I came back from my morning 🏃 run:
@raunometsa this looks great! Love it!
I like this idea. It would be cool to organize these into categories so people could easily find indie alternatives to commonly used types of products like analytics, CRMs etc. Great work.
What are your plans for the future with this?
@ramykhuffash Thanks, it's a great idea! I'll build categories into this. Probably when adding/editing a product, you can choose a category (or add a new one) and I'll show these categories somewhere (on top?) on the listing page.
I'm trying to build this into a small social network site for product makers. I've started with 🛠️ Product updates, 🚧 Roadmap, ✏️️ Blog, 😃️ Subscribers, 📮 Messages and 📈 Statistics – you can see those by clicking links on the left side:
All ideas and suggestions are welcome!
@ramykhuffash My first thought also. This is where I feel this website should move towards focusing on. Not easy to monetise as most IH don't have any affiliate scheme set up.
@ramykhuffash Added to my 🚧 roadmap:
Dope 🚬🚬design. I love the simplicity of it.
What is in your stack?
How long did it take you to build?
What is the inspiration behind building it?
@dredurr Thanks a lot! It's a Laravel (php) project + MySQL db hosted on Digital Ocean. I made it in a evening some days ago and then fixed some 🐞 bugs that IH community pointed out.
I think it's so cool that people 🛠️ bootstrap their own products to profitability. I understand that not all products can be bootstrapped, but there are a lot of internet products that really can – there's so many good examples of profitable sideprojects out there.
@levelsio is definately a huge inspiration for me. Indie Hackers too!
Looks amazing..just added my startup :)
I can access for edit every project.
Is it only for me or for all?
Is it bug or feature? :)
@nikolay_siabrenko Yeah... I had no limitations there, but it makes sense to limit that – I now changed it so that only submitter can edit own posts. Does it make sense...? 🤔
@raunometsa Yes, If I was been an evil genius I maybe will change all projects on own project :)
@nikolay_siabrenko @raunometsa shouldn't a maker be able to edit too? I wanted to add something to newCo but can't 😔
@raunometsa @bentossell Currently I can update my project Tripi.
Find your project in the list and in right part of line click on edit button or edit by link -
Awesome idea. Love the simplicity of the site and the integration with PH votes!
Really cool 🙌. I added mine, although pre-revenue. As already mentioned in the comments, this has potential in showing indie alternatives to mass market software. I'd rather give my money to indie makers! 👍
@colinwinhall There's a lot of products pre-revenue so that's cool and yeah, I would also pay indie makers directly!
This is neat. I like the simplicIty of it. Added my older brother’s solo project: NanaGram.co. It lets you mail 4x6 photos to your loved ones via SMS. Makes it super easy to send photos to Grandma 👵
@andygcook same here—simplicity is key 👌 I've added SlidesUp to the list!
What's the point of the website? It's just a list. What is supposed to help with? Who is your target audience? I may sound critical but, someone has to ask.
@i_shank Yeah, it's a very simple list currently, that's all. However, I would like to build this into a small social network for makers. I've started with 🛠️ Product updates, 🚧 Roadmap, ✏️️ Blog, 😃️ Subscribers, 📮 Messages and 📈 Statistics which you can check out here a little bit (click on left menu items):
@makehub @raunometsa Piece of advice - build the community first and then the product. I have been through this before.
@makehub @i_shank Yes! This kind of product can't exist without the community! I was kinda hoping to build the product together with the community – after all these people would use the product and not me personally.
I hope to find makers here who would like to be a part of building this product (I mean, I will write code, but community could help me to figure out the exact functionality).
@makehub @raunometsa https://www.producthunt.com/posts/readory-2 This was highly voted on PH. It is eventually dying due to lack of community.
Smart idea! A cool feature would be to list major SaaS companies and give alternatives that solomakers offer 👊
Thanks for featuring me in there! 🙌
@leo_bqecker Yeah! Great idea – it's on my 🚧 roadmap now:
Awesome work!!! I love the idea behind it. I can surely see a long road of success for it! Kudos to all the listed makers! They make a great community for it! ✌️
@divjpatel Thanks a lot! ✌️
Nice idea! I've added my 2 products. I think I will mostly use Roadmap and Product Updates features. Keep up the good work. 👏 😸
@mucahittutuncu Nice, let me know if I could improve these features further!
Nice idea. Submitted QuickCode to the list.
Early adopter here, Pretty straight forward and awesome
Products are being built by these awesome 🛠️ makers:
