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:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Add GPLv2 Only license option

    More license options - like GPL v2 Only, etc.

    • As a first time user, the UX sucks - big time. There needs to be a simple tutorial to follow.

      I added a project. Now what? It is not obvious how to put stuff in the project.

      • 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. :)

        • True Support for Teams

          Currently Hackster lets you create a team for a project and add members to that team, but that group only exists in the scope of that project. You can create another group later with the same name for another project, but the members are not carried over and the system adds an incrementing number to the team name URL. Also, team name URLs are not currently implemented.

          Please add true support for teams.

          • 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.
