[GH] Search

I built a web app that makes GH a bit more usable and after some cool kid encouragement, it is now a “thing”. :nerd_face:

[GH] Search

Features

  • Group Buys [GB] and Interest Checks [IC] included (~ 200 posts)
  • Masonry grid (responsive) displaying the first three image posts
  • Search by keyword

I’ll be adding tags and the ability to sort in the upcoming weeks. Big thanks to @Deadeye and @skepp for the suggestions. Stay safe and have a happy holiday!

Woah just found out about this! Pretty neat. The first thing I notice is that there is a lot of deskmat ICs on GH. Would be nice if there was a filter for this.

The site’s content is totally driven by what gets posted to GH, but filtering deskmats out by default is an easy fix. What are your thoughts on macropads and other things that aren’t specifically keyboards or switches?

I should also say thank you for doing the work on this. Apologies if my last post came off demanding.

Personally, I am ok with macropads and switches. I am just of the opinion that a lot of deskmats are low effort GBs. Aliexpress already offers custom print options. I get why people do it, even a couple more mats would make your order make cheaper, easier, etc. It is just not something I am into. For the people that are into that aspect, let them focus on that.

There are some people that are only into switches, so I guess following that logic, maybe switches would be a good filter. :man_shrugging:

You’re more than welcome, and not at all. Here to help. :nerd_face:

All good points regarding the deskmats and I’ll work on some dedicated filter buttons for the type of merch being advertised, e.g., Keyboard, Switches, Deskmats, etc. In the meantime, if you type terms like “GMK” or “KAT” in the search box, it’ll return all the threads matching those specific keycaps. The same trick works for switches and anything else usually mentioned in the title of a post.

I added a few sort options and changed up the color scheme to keep things a bit fresh. I thought some kind of scorecard might come in handy when double-checking a runners past experience and cheering those absolute legends helping make our community that much better.

Here’s a sample of some of the data points I can report on. All comments and/or suggestions are most welcomed.
