πŸ‘‹ Hey Product Hunt! It's Ethan, the maker of KanbanMail. I hang out with the indie maker community a lot, and I've found it's often quite hard to summarize your maker activity in a simple way. So, I decided to create maker.rocks β€” a fun way to share everything about you as a maker. Next time someone asks what you're working on or you're wondering what to put in your Twitter bio, maker.rocks is here for you! You can claim your nifty link such as maker.rocks/ethan now, but be quick! Go snag your first name before somebody else does πŸ˜‰ I made this product live as part of the 24 hour startup challenge. Because of the short time period I made this in, there is lots more that I still want to add. I started working on things like displaying the total number of upvotes across products, average upvotes per product, shortest time between 2 Product Hunt launches, average time between 2 Product Hunt launches and more. Feel free to suggest stuff too! πŸ™Œ If you want to see a great example of maker.rocks in action, check out @levelsio 's page! πŸ‘‰ https://maker.rocks/levelsio And thanks @thepatwalls , @arminulrich and @_feloidea for organizing the 24hr startup challenge, it was super fun to take part!!
@booligoosh Massive congrats for building this in 24 hours! It was awesome watching your stream and I loved your interview with @thepatwalls !! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰
@booligoosh Kudos for getting something done by the end of the challenge! I checked out a few of the streams and it looked like a lot of fun. I've seen a few of these maker profile products appear recently - I think it's a cool idea, but none of them seem to have really gained traction. I suspect there is something missing that is preventing makers from really utilising these services as their personal brand home, but I'm not sure what it is. Best of luck :)

@arminulrich Wow, your profile looks awesome!!!

@rossdcurrie Thanks 😁 706 people have signed up so far, so it's getting some traction. Now I just need to talk to some of them and see what they would want before they share the link everywhere 😎 Already seen a few people putting it in their Twitter bio!!
Congrats on launching on time, as part of the 24hr challenge. Besides that though, this looks great! Suggestion if you haven't thought about this already: on the landing page, eventually make a list of all of the maker profiles, that you can filter/search and just generally discover. It can be the main place to discover who's who in the maker scene. Great job!

@leandro8209 Thanks 😁 Yes, that's definitely planned!
@leandro8209 @booligoosh Could be a deliberate design decision to not show profiles on the main page, but to exclusively force people to spread their links (which would be good to spread the site) and make their own lists (the latter could be bad, because then somebody else gets the opportunity to create a place to maintain such a list). Users might want to send people to their maker.rocks profile and not have them distracted to go to profiles of other makers, which would be advertising for others and not the maker who wants to advertise himself. On the other hand, promoting/discovering other makers as well does something for the community, and while there are other sites that help with that as well, they less likely do it as an aggregate over several sites/profiles. Just some thoughts.
Congrats on shipping this product, Ethan! So excited to see maker.rocks launching - watching you build this product from scratch using several APIs to aggregate data has been super interesting! Keep it up and SHIP SHIP SHIP ✨✨✨
