MakeHub

A crowdsourced list of startups made by solo developers

#3 Product of the DayJune 27, 2018

MakeHub is a crowdsourced list of startups made by solo developers. It would be really nice of you to help me improve the list by logging in with Twitter. My ๐Ÿค– robots will take care of updating the dynamic data (Twitter followers, Product Hunt upvotes, ...)

I hope this motivates you to start ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ making your own product!

Hi all โ€“ 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 looks great! Love it!
This is neat. I like the simplicIty of it. Added my older brotherโ€™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 ๐Ÿ‘ต

@andygcook same hereโ€”simplicity is key ๐Ÿ‘Œ I've added SlidesUp to the list!
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 ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ Product updates, ๐Ÿšง Roadmap, โœ๏ธ๏ธ Blog, ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๏ธ Subscribers, ๐Ÿ“ฎ Messages and ๐Ÿ“ˆ Statistics โ€“ you can see those by clicking links on the left side: http://makehub.io/@makehub 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.

Dope ๐Ÿšฌ๐Ÿšฌdesign. 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 ๐Ÿž bugs that IH community pointed out. I think it's so cool that people ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ 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 โ€“ there's so many good examples of profitable sideprojects out there. @levelsio is definately a huge inspiration for me. Indie Hackers too!
๐Ÿšจ๐ŸšจAlarm! Alarm!๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿšจ 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 โ€“ I now changed it so that only submitter can edit own posts. Does it make sense...? ๐Ÿค”
@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 ๐Ÿ˜”
@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 - http://makehub.io/@YourProjectNa...
