Feedback on my sideproject

Hi,

Currently I'm building https://marinaplan.com/.

I’m 21 years old and sail a lot. We never know what marina to visit (especially abroad), how are the facilities 🚻 and what are the costπŸ’°? So I decided to make MarinaPlan! With MarinaPlan you can easily see what the pro’s βž• and con’s βž– are off a marina.


Some features:

Features in MarinPlan:

πŸ›°οΈ All marinas in an overview based on their score.

πŸ—ΊοΈ All marinas clustered on a map.

πŸ” Search and filter marina’s.

πŸ“Š Vote and add marina information.

ℹ️ See several marina information.


Some tech πŸ”Œ I used:

Backend:

  • Laravel / Nova / Scout
  • Redis
  • Mysql / Sqlite

Frontend:

  • Vue.js / Vuex
  • TailwindCss
  • Mapbox

Server:

  • Linode
  • Laravel Forge

It's the first product I've ever made. It's not finished yet. In the next
couple of months I'm going to add a lot more data and ship it. I already learned a lot
from building this product.

Would love to get some feedback.

Please let me know what you think!

Congratulations Lars on many levels. That is awesome you finally took the leap and created your first product, congratulations for launching it. First of all, it looks great and is responsive. To be honest, there is not much improvement I can offer, for now, most improvements are aesthetic like there is a lot of emphasis on weather, you have it both in the description and in icons. I think you could use the description for something else. I would also suggest as one of the images for the marina, you should add a google map screenshot so I can visually see where in the country this marina is located. Where in the UI do you plan to place the score of the marina when you have it? I think it should be one of the first things you see. Anyway, great stuff!

@AdimOfunne thanks for your time appreciate it!

"like there is a lot of emphasis on weather, you have it both in the description and in icons"

I agree with that will fix it.

"google map screenshot so I can visually see where in the country this marina is located."

Will add that, good one ;) !

"Where in the UI do you plan to place the score of the marina when you have it?"

When you hover over a marina the most important scores will be visible. When you click on
a marina (see tab scores) all scores will be visible here you can vote aswel.
