Hello there folks! 👋 I recently started working on 'Might' for product teams: Validate ideas without code by blending a design prototype to your live product ⚡️ (users won't know it's a test) https://www.get-might.com/ I would love to get some feedback on the idea and the problem space we're tackling. 💪🏼 Cheers, Yair

@bornsleepy Hi Yair. This is something I imagine we would use. It's much more realistic than using a landing page to validate ideas, where you have to rely on users 'getting it'. My main constructive point is teaching your users how to have validation conversations with potential users. Putting an idea or prototype in front of them and asking 'would you use it?' will 90% of the time receive a positive response, even when they have no intention of actually using it (because people like to be nice). My experience has been that true validation comes from not showing or talking a product or idea, but rather finding out what methods they've used to solve their problems and asking what worked/didn't work etc. So I imagine we would use this prototyping app further down the validation path once we have a real concept to work with, rather than the early stages. Hope that helps and I've signed up for the beta :)
@bornsleepy Hi Yair, actually I liked the Idea if I could get it right. You will provide an application where users will somehow preview and comment etc. to validate the idea, right? To be honest altough our project is based on a real business case I really would like to validate it with many others ( if I could turn back to first days :)) therefore I support the idea
@bornsleepy Hi, the message of your product is very clear. However, I think it only provides an abstract description of the way it resolves the problem. Say, I have that problem and I see how this product would address it but I need more details on how it'll be done. I expected the section "How it work" to provide more information. Otherwise, it's very promising and I think I'll use it. That's why I signed up for the early access 😀
@bornsleepy Hello, this is very cool - I run design sprits for which prototypes are great for new products - but when doing "new feature" sprints this would be very useful. The landing page is good - but I think you might need a glimpse into a backend or something that shows how it works a bit more - also, I tried clicking on the "Live prototype" button+arrow pointing to the right so maybe the arrow should point to the left or be taken off?

G’day from Sydney, 🇦🇺 I’m launching Chrome extension that saves Google Meet captions to help you stay focused during meetings by reducing the time spent on note taking. We all started to have substantially more video calls and having all conversations saved in the text format provides you with the backup. https://www.producthunt.com/post... The goal is to make powerful meeting minutes without typing anything. I'd love to get some feedback around the tool and also ask you if you'd use tags to highlight important parts of the conversation during the meeting. Stay safe🐱
Co-founder @ Tactiq
Hi @gaialiciabalossi, thanks for your feedback. Super helpful! Since Tactiq saves the transcript provided by Google Meet it has pretty good accuracy, especially for native speakers. Not so good for non-native unfortunately. Users' privacy is at the core of the decision making, for this reason app don't store the transcription neither in text not in audio format. During the meeting transcript is temporary save in browser tab and when you choose to export it, Tactiq securely send it to Google Docs (or any place that you've chosen). Hope this help with some of the concerns you may have.😌

Hello there, Im sharing with you the my new project Centralboard.app: The last week i designed and developed CentralBoard, a Customisable dashboard service for your Pi, Smart-Mirror and Browser, and... Website: https://www.centralboard.app Producthunt 🐱: https://www.producthunt.com/post... Short Medium Post: https://medium.com/@hello_48809/... I put our focus in this service on simple things, like reusability, simplicity and usability. I already developed some widgets, like an iCloud Photo and Google Photo, or JSON widget. What do you think about my project? Any suggestions?
Making stuff and writing about it
@redbeed Hey, Chris! This is awesome! I've toyed with an idea like this myself. I've worked at a few different companies as a software engineer and we've always built our dashboards custom. They make good side projects for bored developers at big companies. Have you thought about your target audience? Is it developers? Product managers? Have you thought about overcoming the rejection of people saying they can just build their own dashboard? I think your landing page could benefit from being a bit more focused. You have a feature section for each of your big use cases. As I scroll, it makes it kinda confusing to know what it's for. I think you should focus the whole landing page in on one of those use cases - whether it's a personal dashboard, family board, team board, or the mirror displays. Choose whichever is most promising. A lot of websites follow a model of having a main landing page, then in the footer have "for" links. Like "for bloggers", "for teams", "for journalists". This allows each of those pages to be a landing page focused on each target audience. Cheers,
@ryan_wilson6 Hey Ryan, first thanks for your excellent suggestion. The idea is created because I had an "old" monitor, that is now hanging on my office wall. I basically use it to see the next meetings and calls in my calendar and the weather. So the widgets, that are currently available are based on this (my own) use case. You are right, the landing page, at the moment, is a simple "one" pager, where a customer needs to find his own "example" why to use centralboard, but I will split it into different sub landing pages. The goal is to make it easy for the customer and for google to get a picture what the service can do. Currently, the audience is currently the "basic" customer with only a few simple interests. I plan, and have already begun, to develop widgets for specific interest groups, e.g. Google Analytics, Simple Analytics, Spotify, Philips Hue or JIRA. Also, some more basic widgets for everyone like a Note, Checklist and Mail overview widget. So I think, at the moment, the audience is more the personal user and not product managers or owners. But in the near future I hope to deliver widgets for more groups like I mentioned before. Thanks, Chris
Making stuff and writing about it
@redbeed This sounds like a good plan. I recently unmounted my second monitor because it was taking up space and I didn't use it much. This sounds like a great use case for it! I might have to set it back up to try your product out. I think focusing the landing page on the personal dashboard will help you gain some initial users in that group. Initial personal users might help you break into the enterprise world with customers if they love it enough they want to use it at their company. Other than just enterprise integrations like Analytics and Jira, I could see team access control features being a popular feature to have when the time comes. I saw in your medium post's intro video, that JSON is a supported widget(?) Have you considered creating an open-source plugin system that would allow a community to build dashboard plugins?
@ryan_wilson6 Oh yes, you should give centralboard a try. At the moment I didn't write any "how tos" for setting up a Pi with centralboard or anything like that, but if you need help while setting it up or build widgets please reach out to me here or at twitter. Also, if you want to, please tell me about your experience while building a dashboard and about the performance. Yes I build a JSON Widget for the more experienced user - you type in the endpoint to the JSON and then you can build your own "widget layout" with mustache. A marketplace for widgets is on my todo-list, but first I wanted to focus on widgets that are built by me. The plan is, that you can set up the layout, the config variables and a simple data "parser" maybe, so you, e.g. can parse the data that's incoming before displaying it on the custom widget.
@hello_48809 @redbeed Hey Chris, This is actually really cool. I'm going to be honest: I wasn't super clear on what the product was exactly until I read some of these comments, and really dug into the site. To @ryan_wilson6 point, I think you could really benefit from focus. I would choose one direction (i.e. target business teams, families, personal use, etc). Focusing on one direction will make it much easier to sell (since you have a clear idea of your user), and market (since you can just talk about the features that appeal to that target market). I think the imagery on the site could use a bit of love too. For instance, instead of showing a family, you may want to show a visual of the product. Right now, it's kind of hard to get a sense for what the product's actually like. Overall I think it's a really cool idea though! Keep pushing. I could see this turning into something really great.

Hi folks! Yesterday we launched Serverauth: https://www.producthunt.com/post... It's been really fun building it and we've got tons of ideas in the pipeline. The concept is that it helps you secure your web servers by limiting who can access them and when. I recently redid the main site in TailwindCSS which was fun to figure out. It's a pretty basic and small site but I'd appreciate any feedback you have!
I love building magical user experiences
@rick_m1 Hi Rick, ServerAuth looks awesome! As someone who is developing a product with access to medical data, I always worry about the balance between the pace needed as an early stage team (read: deploying hot fix on a prod server) and server security - this will be incredibly useful to me in that regard! The landing page looks absolutely gorgeous as well. I had a couple questions: 1. For our auditing purposes, it would be great if we could have a log of who accessed the servers and when. Do you think this is possible? 2. What about database servers like mongoDB? How would i secure access to those kinds of servers with your service? Thank you! And keep up the great work :)
Hi @hirday_gupta, thanks for the kind words :) With regards to access logs this is something we're working on in our roadmap. Our aim is to allow you to turn it on per-server and then be able to access both the 'raw' log for in-depth auditing, as well as provide a nice visual of activity by team member across your servers. It's a tricky one to get right but one that we think we can do well. For now we're primarily focusing on SSH based security as this is the primary area where we've seen people having issues, however we've got some ideas in the pipeline for expanding this to other services such as databases (primarily MySQL, Postgres and Mongo) and services such as ElasticSearch.
Veteran failure, engineer, founder
Hello Makers and Hunters, I've been working on https://dwata.com full time since end of April 2020. Some of you may notice the progress updates that I share on PH. Dwata is: - Powerful, self-hosted, open source admin - At a fraction of development cost - Manage your SQL, APIs (Stripe, Mailchimp, etc.) & Content in one place - Work with your entire team - Bring your backend for custom logic (any framework/language) The idea comes from my many years of working as a software engineer (10+ startups) and seeing companies passively invest in their own admin software (Django, Laravel, React... all combinations). I am also focusing on making things easy for everyone in the team, not just techies. Team collaboration is part of the core thought process, like everyone sees what are the pending shipments or most active customers, etc. Keeping company wide notes on data or share filtered views (week/week, month/month) so that everyone is on the same page. I will try to show 2 public demos per month and do 1 release per month. All demos are open to everyone, but initially the software releases will be only to early adopters - which I am trying gather. If you are interested in using Dwata in your company please poke me. I am happy to prioritize some tasks to fit the needs of early adopters. Cheers and thank you all :)
Transformation Consultant @Ericsson
Hello there guys! Since corona-virus outbreak, I lost my consulting projects, and all of a sudden was left with a lot of free time. Fortunately for me I have a good support system, but I realised that many people are not so fortunate. So I decided to offer my expertise 'for-free' to couple of individuals who are impacted financially in the current scenario and have dependents. Past couple of weeks I worked with 2 individuals who lost their jobs and one startup, helping them restart. In the process I realised I can easily spend 20-25% of my worktime helping others with my expertise. And I love the experience to be honest :-). Since past couple of weeks I also realised that there can be more people who have time on hand, and can help others. So I decided to put together a simple not-for-profit platform. I intend to continue to evolve it, for ex: Offer for free use already paid subscriptions, softwares and extensions that are not used by me. And I have a few of them! Here is my not-for-profit - https://vikat.org I am still refining it, and look forward to your views and feedback. As I mentioned, the intention is not to make it complicated. And If you'd like to join me, please let me know. More the merrier. Cheers, AJ
@strongsoda Hey! I think this is a really cool idea. But the site does feel a bit premature. I think it's ok to launch with a limited number of instructors, but you should emphasize why you've chosen to collaborate with these instructors. Just my two-cents. All-in-all I think it's a great concept with great potential though! Keep going!
Building cool stuff on the internet
@jack_wright1 I launched quickly after having an initial picture of what it could look like, to get feedback and validation. And I did receive some very helpful feedback that I'll be using to update the site which will be ready by probably end of day. Thanks for your feedback. It does make sense to emphasize what the listed people gained by listing themselves.

@caryn___ @robin_nessensohn I honestly love the design + flow. I wish it were possible to update my profile photo (it ended up looking grainy). Initially, I took the quiz a bit absentmindedly and would love to be able to retake it. In general, I love the community idea and look forward to seeing this built out a bit more. It would be interesting to see what people are working on and maybe even see what they need help with// see what they are able to + willing to assist others in (i.e. my profile could say that I am willing to offer marketing advice and Caryn's could say that she is seeking help with her GTM... something that helps foster community). Just an idea! Overall, I am thrilled to be part of this new community and LOVE what you have built!
