RE: debato: A platform for structuring online debates
Hi, @debato (@samve)! I think it's a pretty interesting idea, and I'm curious to see how it will evolve in the future! The post itself seems like it would be better suited to the blog category since it's more of an introduction to the project - for the development category we like to see more information related to the development side of the process (see this guide for some tips). Nevertheless, I will review the code and give you some feedback and tips where I think they would help!
First of all, the URL you linked (http://www.debato.org/) doesn't work, but http://debato.org/ does (you should really make it
https anyway). After logging in it also still says you can log in (should show a username for example) and the upvote slider isn't really working correctly.
As for the UI, it's pretty basic, but that's to be expected of the first version. I would recommend checking out Grid or Flexbox, as that makes developing a website's layout pretty easy and quick!
js folder, all CSS files in a
css folder etc.
I would also recommend you use ESLint, as that will help you maintain a consistent, up-to-date style throughout your code. I say this because of e.g. the user of
var when you should be using
const, some inconsistent indentation etc.
I think I'll leave it at this, as I have written a quite a bit and it's probably a lot to think about (and I don't what to discourage you by overwhelming you with feedback)!
