Hoppscotch just received it's 25,000th star on GitHub. We'll use this milestone to recap Hoppscotch’s growth and other important milestones since its beginning as an experimental project in 2019. We've accomplished lot of great things together.
To those who don't know what Hoppscotch is:
Hoppscotch is an open sourced API request builder used by 100k+ developers. Helps you to create / test / save requests faster, saving precious time on development. An online free, fast and beautiful alternative to Postman / Insomnia etc.
Web app: hoppscotch.io
While tracking the success of an open source project is known to be a hard problem, we've a few metrics available to us. Currently 114 developers have contributed to some of the 2570 commits of the Hoppscotch repository made available in 7 releases. And this is only data from the main Hoppscotch repo. The ecosystem has many other repos ranging from Hoppscotch Browser Extension (which fixes
CORS issues) to Proxyscotch - A simple proxy middleware server.
The number of stars of a GitHub project is yet another indicator, because it means people are adding the project to their list of favorites. However, people that starred Hoppscotch are not necessarily users and many users don’t star Hoppscotch (if that applies to you, consider giving us a star!), therefore its not a precise metric. Till date Hoppscotch has 100k+ all-time users during the span of an year. Which includes ~20k+ monthly users.
Milestones like this are proud moments for the developers & community, help motivate more work & new developments. If you'd like to support Hoppscotch open source project, consider sponsoring us on GitHub.
This will be added to the greatest moments timeline.
Immense thanks to @ben and entire Dev Team for their support from day one. To @andrewbastin for his selfless services, engineering expertise and contributions. To each and every contributors for being a part of the project.
