My newest dev project is done - YouBarter.us | 🔥Roast Me 🔥

My mom came up with a really good idea a while back about creating a platform for bartering. After about a year, the website was finally complete.

https://youbarter.us/

Bartering is the act of trading goods and services, and in this site, all goods and services appear on a map, displaying where things are.

Map of YouBarter

This was my first time using Mapbox. It was quite difficult, but it was worth it and very fun to experiment with and put together. On top of it, putting it together with react was really hard, but thanks to this article on dev.to, I was able to implement it.

I can explain a lot of this all day, but I'll leave it to you. Please share your thoughts on it and, if you find any, please report any bugs you should happen to find.

Thanks for reading!

Love the idea (couldn't try the map itself bc I'm in Ireland).
A few stuff:

  • Nav is not working properly in ultra wide (it's not 100% of the screen)
  • Nav hamburger stays there (there should be a different solution for mobile/desktop imho)
  • Like the Idea of showing a desc of the links but it's pretty off-putting (imho leaving the links as what they are, without any expanding animation/extra text is the best).

This is really cool!
It’s sad how only people in USA can access it :/

Unfortunately this was not a decision made by me. We might go international in the future, but as of now, we'll stay in one country.

There's some overflow issues and the burger menu makes the nav disappear

Thanks for the report, I'll try to fix that up when I have time. A lot of users have been reporting that, it might have been the fact that iphones use a different browser than android which seems to work fine.
