I’m Armin, co-creator of MakerWidget! It’s a little widget you can put on your project pages to show who you are, where to find you and what you did before.
My partner Melanie and I wanted to make ourselves more visible on our side project pages, so we tried to elaborate on Pieter Levels idea of a maker badge!
You can easily set up your widget on makerwidget.com for free and grab your embed code! It supports multiple makers, custom link lists and a project gallery. Being a team of two makers ourselves, we focused a lot on flexibility!
I built the whole thing with Laravel and Vue.js and learned so much on the way. Mostly about the fact that an iFrame can be transparent !? - In the next steps, im going to try to optimise the Request-count - if someone here can give me tips on what else I can (and should) do tech-wise please tell me!
I ship-streamed the development of this widget on Twitch, and will also be live today. You can watch me on shipstreams.com! (And yes, I’m low-key trying to make „ship-streaming“ a thing!) :)
Widgets are already embedded here:
Also, we have a Gatsby Plugin now:
Full Disclosure: I stream on Armin's site shipstreams, I am biased.
What is your tech stack?
Started with Laravel Spark .. so Laravel + Vue.js :)
