  1. Add More hardware to Hackster store (Linkit one)

    https://www.hackster.io/store
    The idea of rewarding our effort is great but there are very few items on the store and I already own a few of them (Photon and TI) .
    So it is of little help to me like many others. Please add more and more hardware to the store which would really help and motivate us.
    Hardware part Suggestions :
    1) Linkit one
    2) Grove kit for Linkit one
    3) Arduino
    4) Redbear labs BLE

    Really looking forward to see them on Store.
    Thanks

          • bill of materials shopping cart / referral

            Links to a project "bill of materials" to a site like Sparkfun or Adafruit, so I know what parts and gizmos to buy... Maybe the project poster could get some referral bonus, and so could hackster from the vendor site. :)

                • Beginer lessons

                  I think there is a need for a more new user type projects. Hello world type stuff. light up leds, run motors from external sources, how to switch to arduino ide, particle ide, just simple step by step instructions.

                  • Filer by Hackerspace, allow user-added Hackerspaces?

                    Allow third-parties to add Hackerspaces somehow? (and the official owner to verify themselves and aminister it later)

                    Perhaps have Hackerspaces become similar to a hub and be able to follow projects going on at a particular Hackerspace?

                      • Recently Updated?

                        Version control, IMO, is an unnecessary complication. A predefined search button to recently updated nay be useful as would an automatic banner (border, icon, etc.) Showing recently updated while in any browse view.
                        Idea: project <30 day posted, "new" always activated.
                        Project =>30 day "newly uodated" shown if edit performed within 30 days.

                        And I like the new intro variation... A little animation and color looks great.

                        • Allow Undo When Editing Story Content

                          Using CTRL+Z (or CMD+Z) does not perform an "undo" function like it most editors. It's a pain to rewrite a chunk of an article or entire article if something goes wrong with pasting in copied content (which happened to me). An "undo" operation in any other editor would have restored the content that was lost due to the errant paste operation.

                          • I could find other hackers in my local area.

                            For those that are interested in meeting others, they could post a local meeting place and then if someone responds with an interest in meeting, then a time is posted and others can join it as well.

                                • Allow links to sub projects on GitHub

                                  I have a large library which includes several sample projects. I am documenting each of those samples as separate projects on Hackster. Under the Software tab I want to include a link directly to the specific sample. But when I put a link to a specific page or sub project on GitHub, Hackster automatically changes the link to point at the root of the repository. Which is the main library, and not the sample I'm wanting to demonstrate.

                                    • I could control the cropping of my image for the project.

                                      The project "hero" image - shown in search results, home page, top of project detail page, etc - that I upload gets automatically cropped by Hackster. However, I would like to be able to control where it gets cropped. Currently, it's a trial and error process to get just the right part of the image to show up.
