We saw it in the early days of Product Hunt before we even offered an API. Twitter, Reddit, and Snap are just a few others that attracted a lot of developers unofficially tinkering on top of their platform early on.
Today we're seeing a rise in apps built to make Notion better.
Notion, the all-in-one workspace, has endeared itself to the tech community since 2016. In 2018 when they launched Notion 2.0, they hit #1 product of the month on PH, and by September 2019 they had over a million users. This April, Notion raised another $50 million at a $2 billion valuation. Quite the impressive two-year feat when you consider that when they launched Notion 2.0 on PH in 2018 they had less than 10 people on the team.
Here are a few of the companies building on top of Notion:
Super turns your Notion docs into a website. You can customize Notion docs with Google fonts, inject JS snippets for analytics or live chat, and customize social meta tags and images using Super.
Fruition makes Notion pages much prettier with custom domains. It’s a lot like a starter version of Super, and it’s open-source and free to use.
Notion Charts helps you create interactive charts that are tailored for Notion’s embed blocks. Although the reports aren’t totally “live” you can create live-ish dashboards and charts via a connection to Google Sheets.
Reports for Notion creates embeddable charts and tables from CSV Files, JSON links, GitHub, Trello, and Google Sheets.
This might just be the start of a new wave of Notion tools. 🌊
