Mind That Age!

This blog post is 4 years old! Most likely, its content is outdated. Especially if it's technical.

On Friday I did a Show HN and got featured on the front page for HTML Tree.

Google Analytics
Amazingly, out of the 3,858 visitors (according to Google Analytics today) 2,034 URLs were submitted and tested on the app. Clearly a lot of people just clicked the example submission but out of those 1,634 were unique. Granted, some people submitted more than one URL but I think a large majority of people came up with a URL of their own to try. Isn't that amazing! What a turnout of a Friday afternoon hack (with some Sunday night hacking to make it into a decent looking website).

The lesson to learn here is that the Hacker News crowd is excellent for getting engagement. Yes, there are a lot of blather and almost repetitive submissions but by and large it's a very engaging community. Suck on that those who make fun of HN!

UPDATE

HTMLTree has been moved to https://htmltree.herokuapp.com/
