Hey there Product Hunt 👋 Let me begin by thanking @thisiskp_ for hunting my product —Tools for Makers. This is Sharath, 2 time founder, designer and recently turned indie maker. Last week I challenged myself to build a product without writing code. Thanks to @bentossell, @mubashariqbal I found many no-coding tools via newCo. 🚀 Table2site.com is one of them. Inspired by @bramk’s Startup Stash 🙏I built a simple platform that features tools made by indie makers which are verified by Product Hunt community. Meaning almost all the tools are named as either Product of the Day or Product of the Week. My motive behind this idea is to support the indie maker community by curating the best tools in the market all at one place. Not to discard some of the best products that give us inspiration I’ve also featured many famous well-known tools. The unique card design layout comes with pricing, free trial info and a brief description of the product which gives users visibility to browse and power to explore multiple categories. As I said this is my first product as a indie maker, I can’t be more excited to share with you all. Huge shoutout to @PoeHaH for an incredible support throughout this process 🙌 I’m going to add tools/resources every week so that the platform will be up to date. Can you think of a tool I should add? Or maybe categories or other suggestions? Let me know, I'd love to hear it! 🙏 Thank you for reading ❤️

@poehah I'm glad you liked it. The plan is to feature tools that are hot in the maker community. Again couldn't be possible without table2site.com. Thanks for your support 🙏

@poehah @graeme_fulton Thanks. My motive is to make maker life easy. Happy to include Prototypr as I feel the maker community needs to know how impactful your tool is.

@poehah @5harath I share your motive. Yeah it's really nice to see it included as a maker tool, since most users are currently creatives outside the maker community

What I love about this database is that just last week I saw 50 tools on the site and I was very impressed. Now the list grew to 200+ tools in total. It is fascinating to realize how many great resources and tools exist TODAY for early stage founders to build and ship ideas. No excuses anymore. Take a simple idea and #JustShipIt. Congrats @5harath on the launch again, hope to see more products from you in the future.

@thisiskp_ Thanks for your kind words. As makers to see all these tools under one platform gives us more reasons to ship more simple products. By doing so we are supporting maker community and fulfilling our maker dreams at the same time. Glad so many people are appreciating the curation.

I saw the Resume Builder category is empty, thought I’d suggest Standard Resume, went through the Typeform only to discover that there is no “Resume Builder” option to select 😅 Fantastic resources though. I wish there was the logo of each service in each thumbnail because it’s hard to tell the tiles apart now.

Hey @anna_0x. Thanks for the feedback. There is one tool under Resume Builder - "My Resume Format". Also now you can suggest your tool in the Typeform. I just added the option. Yes the logos would have made a difference, but I went with a unicolor theme which brings elegance and good experience to the user.
Anna Filou@anna_0x · Tech Geek, Web Designer
@5harath well, there weren’t any when I checked... ok, cool! I think a nice uniform look could be achieved while still showing a relevant image (perhaps with a color overlay or making all the logos monochrome)

@anna_0x Sure. I will try to make it more like that 😃
