PH launch tracker - should I open-source it?
Nishith from True Sparrow
We have built this little public PH launch tracker to share our PH launch data (visitors, countries, browsers, etc.) with the community: https://thursday.social/conversa... We have been using it for Thursday's launches (including today's launch), and a few of you have asked if we are planning to open-source it. Well, here's the thing... if there are enough people really wanting it - I will gladly work towards open-sourcing the source code next month. Just let me know by commenting here.

Hey PH community 👋, I am a developer at Thursday. I have contributed to the making of the PH Tracker page as well as other fun mixers within the app. As a developer, the greatest joy for me is to see people use and love the product I helped build. The tracker page is built using Gatsby Js and we are fetching the data from Amplitude APIs for showing visitors details. For the data related to our mixers, we are running a background job that queries the DB and updates the tracker data at regular intervals. So it is all near real-time data. If you have any feedback or suggestions, we’re all ears. And I’ll be happy to answer any technical questions you may have. Thanks!
This would make the ProductHunt launch so much smoother!!! Love it!
Yeah this would actually be kinda cool! Would be helpful to show at least some performance metrics and the ROI associated with launching on PH.
Nice initiative Nishith. Open source is always a positive way forward. As highlighted, it does not just help others, this can be collectively built by other folks who have similar interests and we already have enough such friendly folks in here. Looking forward to seeing you release this soon :)
