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.

I love these short urls! 🤓

Published by: Mobilpadde, Founder of hasty.dev


Don't you just hate it when an app sharing feature turns into a 5k long char-chain? Well, I did for hasty.dev, but no more! I've updated most everything and urls are now always 22 characters long, no more, no less! Oh happy joy!

Here's an example of a shorter url, https://hasty.dev/page/Rh6cXtOCOO5QETQJ8OeQVy it's for the notebook feature of hasty.dev, which I've dubbed pages.

Even works for everything else, that's sharable via hasty.dev! What are you waiting for? Please go check it out 😍

One-click publish

Published by: gabriel_kvl, Founder of Organized.ly


We added a feature for creating a simple website, such as a blog, directly from Organizedly. Setting it up takes only a minute.

We focused on a good user experience and beautiful design. In terms of functionality, we kept to the bare essentials:

👉 One-click publish 👉 Minimal configuration needed 👉 Auto-tagging and sorting articles by tags 👉 Dark mode 👉 Article length in minutes

Live-demo: https://demo.organizedly.club/

Our goal is to find first customers to start using this feature as soon as possible.

Next milestone: HelpKit reached $2000 MRR!

Published by: sobedominik, Founder of HelpKit


Today marks the second big milestone for me as an Indiehacker.

HelpKit, my 100% bootstrapped SaaS, reached $2000 in MRR! 🎉

Over 90+ customers are now using HelpKit and Notion to serve their knowledge bases 💪 That's over 3000 help articles 🤯

→ It took around 5 months to reach $1000 MRR → It took 1.5 months to reach $2000 MRR

To be completely honest with you, I did not expect this kind of fast growth but I am thoroughly enjoying it!

Here are five quick lessons I have learned.

🧠 Lesson 1: Full focus

One of the biggest actions for HelpKit's success was forcing myself not to work on my other products. It was SO hard to resist but this way, I couldn't procrastinate and made sure to make the product as perfect as I could. Consistency > Motivation

🏷 Lesson 2: Don't overthink your pricing

In the beginning, you need to make an educated guess about your pricing. There's no way you will know what works and what doesn't. Pick a price and go. Don't overthink. With time you'll find the right value metrics your customers value.

🙇‍♂️ Lesson 3: Stop worrying about eventualities

There will be things in your product that will make you feel it's not worth the price or it doesn't meet your user's requirements. Unless a user addresses it, stop worrying. Countless doubts I had simply never turned into reality.

🙋‍♀️ Lesson 4: Be a human

Don't hide behind the corporate "we". One powerful advantage we @IndieHackers have is that we can build closer, more personal connections with our customers. Hop on a call and tell them your story. They might become your ambassadors.

🧖‍♂️ Lesson 5: Take your time

If you don't feel like working on your project, take a break. Go to the gym, play with your cats, go surfing. Doesn't matter if you need one day or one week. It can be so easy to lose yourself in work. This is not a sprint. It's a marathon.

That's it for now! If you have any questions, more than happy to answer here! :)

Pages are like notebooks

Published by: Mobilpadde, Founder of hasty.dev


The Idea

I've for a while have been tinkering with what I think JavaScript'ers have been missing - namely a way to make Jupyter-like notebooks!

So I started building. Actually been on this since November 12th - so about a month. Lot's of stuff is going to happen still!

The past

Back on the 12th of November it couldn't do much, in fact you were only able to build a page using the source code!

This couldn't spark much joy to any people, so that brings us to the present.

The present

Now you are able to build pages as your heart desires! still missing some documentation on how to use the page-builder, but it's definitely a step in the right direction!

The future

No one knows what the future will bring, not even me for this project! What I do know, though, is that there wil have to be some docs upon how to use the scripting of the pages. Hopefully also a more intuitive way to use the page builder and so on.

I'd love to get some way to work on a saved notebook again, as for now it is not possible to get working on an old saved notebook, which is quite a shame!

The page itself

The notebooks are easily managed by a notion-esque idea-inspired way to build a page - in this case, a notebook.

You start with mostly nothing, then add along all the fields you'd possibly need for a long coding experiment.

It all starts with a box - a magic box one might say. This box allows you to add any element you'd like.

For now though, there are four elements to choose from:

  • Header - A header element
  • Text - A text-area element
  • Code - The snippets to run and global to run from
  • Comment - A super simple comment - for less text that Text, but not quite a heading

Checkout the /page to get a taste off all the elements. It'll show off all of the elements!

The End

Thanks for reading!

By now you must be super excited to get the pages - notbooks - a try! You without further ado, hasty.dev/page and a demo is also available on hasty.dev/page/demo 🥰

Pst. There's also a shortcut to get a compelely clean slate by navigating to hasty.dev/page/new 💡

Revamped feature: New graphs

Published by: gabriel_kvl, Founder of Organized.ly


Let's face it, our graphs were nice to have, but not that useful. We wanted to change this.

The revamped graph works more like our brains work. When you think of a topic, you can naturally browse through its connected topics without friction.

The main feature of the new graphs is that you can navigate through your second brain in the right sidebar.

👉 View immediate connections of the current note

👉 Browse through multiple levels of connected notes

👉 Search in notes within the current graph

👉 Lock the graph while navigating in Organizedly
