From the maker

Hello errybody.

First things first, credit to @mubashariqbal and @sethlouey with this - I came to them with this idea in January and without them this would be a google sheet and nothing more.

Came up with this, a third party site to host bots from the various platforms after the Slack App Directory came out and there was lots of talk around Facebook doing it with Messenger.

I'm sure others are working on this space too.

This is our very MVP version and a side project we have been chipping away at on weekends over the past few months.
There is lots in the pipeline and some tidying up to do:
- share buttons will be turned on today [EDIT] - Fixed!
- trying to figure the best way to add taglines without it looking hella ugly
- Mobile responsive

Timing is great for something like this. With the Kik launch of theirs last week and no doubt Facebook launching theirs tomorrow. Here is one not owned by the platform itself.

Big thanks to all the Alpha testers!

I also think its important to get into the maker process. Ask away :)

UPDATE/EDIT
We've had such an incredible launch yesterday, everything was blowing up. There was coverage on TechCrunch, LAUNCH ticker and Digital Trends, countless shares etc etc. Servers have been a bit up and down in patches while people decided to target us ha. Thanks for bearing with us regardless! Crazy response :)

Glad to see this launched 🚀 With this being the year of the bots having a central place to search _all the bots_ makes total sense 👌 Nicely done team 🤖 https://media4.giphy.com/media/1...

I think we need a bot for this. (so the loop is closed)

@bentossell Looks good, but what's the difference in botlist & https://www.producthunt.com/tech...? Only 3 days ago and they only got 116 upvotes. This looks to be upvoted & commented by most of the heavy hitters at Product Hunt. Is it all about marketing it better?

Looks really cool! Any thoughts regarding bot creators "claiming ownership" for individual bots, so that we can add media, a description, release notes, etc?
