👋 Hi Product Hunt, I’m a newbie datascientist who just graduated from school. 👨‍🎓 ❓Why dafter I want to learn to code Machine Learning algorithms, be it classifying cats 🐱 and dogs 🐶, happy sentences 😄 and angry sentences 😠 or hot-dogs 🌭 and not hot-dogs 🍔. All I need is some datasets that will allow me to test my ideas. But datasets are scarce, sometimes not well-referenced, and I spend most of my time just searching for them instead of creating value. That’s why I created dafter. The goal of dafter is to reference every public dataset on earth, just like homebrew does for software, and make it available through one and only one command : dafter get my-dataset 📦 Features: With dafter, you can - download datasets - get info about a dataset - search through all the available datasets with a system of tags - manage the datasets you downloaded PR welcome! 😇 Excited to hear about your feedback!
This sounds like an incredible contribution and I’m not even a data scientist or a developer.
