I made a ProductHunt copy, would you mind posting your product?

Hey all,

I wanted to create something with an AWS-based stack, so I threw together a ProductHunt copy, called ProductList.io.

I would really appreciate if you could post your product (Some extra traffic and free advertisement never hurts, right?)

About the tech stack and my experience:

Previously I was using a simple express API for the backend and I would just host it on heroku, however with all the hype around serverless I wanted to try it. The backend is operated by AWS Lambda (Node.js), API Gateway handling the routing, Users are stored in AWS Cognito, and the images are hosted on S3. I lost at least 3 days configuring everything, and even after that I found myself progressing slower than usual. Mostly because this area of web development was fairly unknown to me. In the end performance-wise I did not really notice any big improvements. I am sure with bigger scale, lambda functions could come in handy, but I feel like that does not happen overnight, and for indie projects I will stick to the old-school methods.

    Just posted my product! Don't see it on the page yet.

    It looks like a betalist front page with producthunt modal windows. My question is, why did you this site?

    Very nice design. Added to my launching list for BlogAudio.

    Can you share any stats or is this website too new?
