Two years ago, we launched an API to empower the creative and curious Product Hunt community to extend discovery beyond producthunt.com. Itโ€™s been fun to see what people build, from a "Tinder for Product Hunt" app (by @spyuchan) to a destination of dead products, appropriately named Product Haunt (by @jsneedles and @fredrivett). Weโ€™re taking this a step further with the introduction of Cards. Now you can embed products and comments anywhere on the web. Just click the button in the top right of the product page, and copy+paste the code into your site. If youโ€™re on Medium, itโ€™s even easier. Just paste the product URL (e.g. https://www.producthunt.com/tech...) and hit ENTER. You can see an example of this on Medium here. โœจ Would love to hear everyoneโ€™s feedback and ideas! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

@rrhoover love this! IMO this is massive Ryan. Curious to see how this impacts growth for Product Hunt over time. I'd imagine the click-thru rate for one of these to be much higher than a regular ol' href

@joshmuccio thanks, Josh! Independent of the CTR, Cards give us more visibility into what people are sharing and how visitors are engaging with various products and comments.

For the record, the explainer GIF for Product Hunt Cards proved to hold an extraordinary level of difficulty, and @rrhoover did it all in his personal GIF creation studio. ๐Ÿ‘

Outstanding launch, @rrhoover and team! I just added a card to a portfolio website and it works *beautifully* ๐Ÿ™Œ I'm excited to see how Cards make it easy for creators to represent their products across the web through one primary touchpoint: ProductHunt. This launch sparked a thought about PH becoming the ecosystem for complementary launch-related products: PH-based analytics measuring traffic and conversion for launches, ads and a/b testing tools, even simple landing page opportunities a la Launchrock. Brainstorm aside, awesome launch team!
