What is MakerTools?

As I had mentioned in a previous blog post, my site Webfolio had benefited greatly from being featured on Product Hunt. This and also that I am an active user of Product Hunt led me to create MakerTools, as I thought it would be cool to make something potentially useful for this community.

So how does it work?

It’s incredibly easy, there’s no need for complicated hacks to find usernames. All you do is sign in with twitter (as long as it’s the same twitter username linked with your Product Hunt account) and select your product. We do all the fetching, allowing you to then make a list of all your product’s upvoters. Piece of cake!
