Two weeks!

We've been live for two weeks, and the amount of feedback has been phenomenal. Thanks for your support. We hope to continue improving Open Hardware Hub and making it a great place for you to post and contribute to open-source hardware projects.

What's new?

You might have noticed we've been busy tweaking the site. Here's a list of some of the more noticeable things we've done:

  • Streamlined the user sign-up process
  • Tweaks to the appearance of the right column
  • Added meta description tags to pages so that social networking links show better previews
  • Fixed not being able to preview unpublished first revisions
  • Closed some security holes
  • Hid unpublished first revisions from users other than the owner
  • Changed the URLs in the parts lists to point to Octopart instead of individual vendors to give more choices
  • Changed the process of adding parts to make it more user-friendly

New open-source hardware projects

We got our first user-submitted project on October 8, 2011. Hopefully the first of many! I can't wait to see what great things our other users are building.

Exciting things

Some projects and things on Open Hardware Hub got picked up by a few blogs out there.
