The project began as a bunch of bookmarks copy-pasted into a site. What was initially a one-page list of categorized links is now a moderately-sized, and growing, collection of pages, and it’s getting harder and harder to quickly find relevant resources for a given topic.
So we’ve decided to redo the whole thing! We’re building a complete new app with many planned features to allow folks to more easily find what they’re looking for. We want to make it possible for someone to get on marxist.space with a thought like “I want to watch a documentary about the GPCR” and instantly have links available. We also want to build a way for you (or for us) to find good sources to back up claims during discussions.
The new app will feature a tagging system, (hopefully) intelligent search, and eventually system for showing excerpts of sources for quick citation. We’ll be keeping simple, plain-text data storage so anyone can put in an issue to add a resource.
The development is happening all in the open, so feel free to check out the project and add your suggestions or contribute!
