Hi! We’d love to hear your ideas on how to make Hackster.io more useful and more enjoyable for you. Let us know in the forums below!

It would be great if...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  1. 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.

      • 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

                • Slow project editing

                  I noticed your project editing page is really slow when a lot of pictures get added. It appears to be loading them at full resolution(21mp) and not downsampling them for fast editing. It was so slow I had to wait 3 minutes to see text appear in my caption while typing.

                  I had to manually resize all my images and reupload them. I feel projects are a lot better with photos and this is a major deterrent to use photos in the future.

                              • 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.

                                    • 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?

                                      • Sync project data with github

                                        We could sync all of our projects with github.
                                        So we could get more scipts and data we could use to test on our hardware project
