Branching and Reviews

Published by: Mobilpadde, Founder of gitbird


How about it. Some people don't want all of their commits to become tweets for every branch but some do! And that's quite alright!

Two new features on gitbird, some of you might ahve noticed my newest tweet and yes, it's for real!

  1. I for one, are using sub-modules in my git repository and have only installed the gitbird web-hook to one the main repository. Thus whenever I commit to it, it can become a tweet immediately! But some users weren't super happy with this, thus I've added a new feature to select which branch gitbird will collect commits from to turn into tweets 🐦

  2. I - some times - commit a lot. And I mean quite a lot. So I don't want to turn every commit into a tweet, but other a users has suggested that they don't want to login to the dashboard to check out the tweets. They are confident on what they commit - and in conjunction with the branch-feature, they can now be completely certain! Yes, you might have guessed it, I added a toggle to turn on or off the review mode! 🦜 Let that parrot, parrot 😍

I hope the world (🌐) is gonna love it.

Best regards, Mads

gitbird 🐦

A story

After three years without being online, I've decided to re-launch gitbird 🐦

With a tagline of:

Tweeting has been rather tedious for developers, some even forget. With gitbird you never have to tweet, ever, again! We'll provide a missing link 🐦

One might assume that gitbird will tweet all and everything that a user has committed, but this is not exactly true! With gitbird, you decide what, when and how to tweet the essential commits for your product!

The death and resurrection

The reason why I took it off-line those years back, is the code wasn't completely up-to date with today's standard. So I decided to kill it. Now, though, I've been in all secrecy been developing on it. I now think it is time to finally release the bird and let people see it spread its wings again! 🥳

Ready

All I have to say now, is that I totally think you should go give it a try! It's totally ready and waiting just for you!

For the fun of it, I've decided to twet out the first tweet of my own from @gitbird (here). Why don't you be the second?

Having to do the impossible

Published by: SkilledUpLife, Founder of SkilledUp Life


At the start of the 2nd year (1st Aug 2021), we set a target of achieving 10x growth on the supply side of https://skilledup.life - free talent for tech startups.

In the first 12 months, we achieved our target of signing up 1,000 Volunteers with 24 hours to go. To 10x in the next 12 months, we had to continually up our game.

Now that we have reached the last week of the second year, we have a mammoth task of adding 2,000 new Volunteers to SkilledUp Life.

From where we are standing and based on our past performance, this seems like an impossible task to achieve. But we are going to give our best shot.

What we achieved this past week, which so far has been the best week, we need to achieve the same result almost every day if we are to reach this target.

To give us a chance of achieving, all our team members are being called to help.

When was the last time you chased a result like this? What tactics did you deploy? What was the result? Love to hear.

Do wish us all the best, please. Thank you.

HelpKit reached $3000 MRR and going full-time indiehacking

Published by: sobedominik, Founder of HelpKit


Today marks the third big milestone for me as an Indiehacker. Helpkit, my 100% bootstrapped SaaS, reached $3000 in MRR! That is over 130 paying customers.

From small ambitious content creators to publicly traded companies are all now using HelpKit and Notion to serve their knowledge bases.

This is huge because it basically allows me to go full-time on indiehacking while still being in school (I need to finish my thesis asap). My goal for this summer was to reach $1K for ramen profitability and now reaching 3x is genuinely incredible and I am incredibly grateful for the experience so far.

Update 12 for Open Makers: Leaderboards!

Published by: MicahIverson, Founder of Open Makers


Happy Friday! Today we are excited to announce the launch of a fun little feature called "Leaders or Leaderboards" for Open Makers.

As a fun way to boost a bit of competition on the site and highlight Makers who put in the effort to share their progress in public.

We currently show the top 25 Makers in our 7 different leaderboard categories...

  • Most Projects
  • Most Milestones
  • Most Tasks Completed
  • Most Articles
  • Most Followers
  • Most Profile Views
  • Most Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR)

To view the leaderboards, you can visit this link:

https://openmakers.io/leaders or you can get to it from the third tab on the homepage.

Let us know what you think and I look forward to being knocked out of first place.

Landing-page! 🥳

Published by: Mobilpadde, Founder of hasty.dev


What's up?! A new landing-page is up, that's what's up!

Gave a designer a take on hasty's landing-page, and HOLY COW, did I love it? 🥳

So I, with her acceptance, simply had to implement it. And wow, I'm in love!

Thanks, that's all folkes!

Update 11 for Open Makers : Comments!

Published by: MicahIverson, Founder of Open Makers


After several weeks of hard work, we finally have the ability for members to leave comments on Milestones and Articles!

For such a basic feature, it's a surprisingly complex feature to build and we are still working out a few kinks.

Comments will help make the site a bit more dynamic and will allow for hopefully helpful feedback and support to makers about their updates.

Feedback helps Makers improve their products and helps provide a support system in a world where it can feel very isolating to build a product on your own.
