A tool that lets creator convert their Github curation lists into an easy to use website without any code.
Github lists are simple collection of useful links organized in a markdown file. Here's an example . They are incredibly useful and popular. Unfortunately, they can often grow too large to be able to explore easily and it can get pretty tedious to get to something that you were looking for.
We make the experience of exploration a breeze by tagging the items in the list and allow filtering the list based on these tags. This can be used by list maintainers to generate a website with a much richer experience without any code. The application expects data to be supplied as JSON in a defined structure instead of a markdown which would be a one time activity for an existing list.
The application loads a web page which is already populated with some sample data. It contains a collection of links organized into sections. The links are also tagged. Tags can be selected either from the complete list of tags at the top or from the individual links. The page content updates on the selection to show results which are relevant to the tags that are selected.
This application can be really useful with more data in it. It adds an ease of navigation between links that are missing with markdown and the tags are very handy
But it's limited because the app only have sample data, I think if we could provide a link to an awesome list and your app generate a view for it will be awesome (an awesome app for awesome lists) :)
Liked the simplicity of the design and definitely useful site.
Minimal but it does the job nicely. Good work!
Interesting idea. I like being able to sort by particular keywords.
I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but when I choose two keywords, it included every item which had either keyword. I was expecting that it would only show those items which included both keywords. The list got larger with more keywords selected, rather than smaller, if that makes sense.
Could definitely use more work on the design so it can look much nicer and cleaner through it's okay since you only had 48 hours. Also tag filtering can be improved so that empty sections could be hidden instead of showing up with nothing in them. Good functionality otherwise!
You're right, awesome lists are very useful when you explore a technology and your tag system make the exploration easier than ever. IMHO the UI could be improve, but the project is really great 👏👏👏
Without the ability to tag tutorial pages, I feel like this app is a bit incomplete. I did like the interactivity though. I can also see how useful this could be. One thing I noticed is that when I selected multiple tags, its used an OR boolean join. As a user, I expected an AND join - thus "narrowing" my search down. Maybe add a switch that lets the user flip between AND and OR...
