Hello Product Hunt, This is the second product I am launching in Product Hunt. It was a pain for me when searching for resources online for my design projects. Either it was scattered all around or it's not free. So I decided to build a website stacking up all the resources which are totally free. DesignBase is a database of highly curated free resources for designers. We have a highly curated collection of resources in each category. We will be stacking up resources regularly. P.S As I said before I have no prior experience in hands-on development as I am a designer developed this website in 3 days. This is just an MVP and planning add more features in the future. Help me figure out how I can improve. Spread the world!
@felixjoy OMG I can't get over how good this looks! Very nice! Love the dark/light switch! And I'm actually wondering, how did you implement it, especially without prior coding experience? I'm guessing it's javascript? How did you even make this, it's too good!! 😭
@anna_0x thank you for your valuable comment and glad to hear you like it. I made this using Webflow. It is an amazing tool for designers to develop websites. Plus with some custom code you can create magic.
@felixjoy thanks for the quick reply, I actually looked into it and figured out that you used Webflow a bit after I asked. Funny thing is I use it for my own website but when I saw the theme switcher on yours I thought "that's custom code!" I really have to look into it because I'm a huge fan of dark themes but I also stand for letting people choose what they prefer, so a switch is a must! Did you write the code yourself or is there some relatively easy to implement something like this using ready-made code?
@anna_0x yes even I love dark theme and ability to switch. You can do this using Interaction 2.0 in Webflow.
