Thanks so much -- on the Hacker News Front-page :-)

Johannes Lichtenberger @Lichtenberger

You guys are awesome. Sirix.io / https://github.com/sirixdb/sirix has been on the Hacker News front page (or still is) thanks to a post from you :-) That's so awesome...

    Congrats! Once the hype slows down, you can make a "stats" post here about what being on the front page of HN was like :)

      There were around 2000 unique visitors today, it's crazy :-)

      I now bought a few days on betapage

        Epic! That's so awesome. How'd did get on HN? Someone from IH posted there?

    That's great! Do you have plans to monetize Sirix?

      Mh not really, but the biggest inspiration currently is Evan You and the Podcast with him here on indiehackers :-) I think it would be a dream getting sponsored, but yeah... I kept adding stuff stuff last years and especially since a year and now it seems I've had some luck. But I don't know how to get users into my community forum to receive feedback.

      And if anyone knows, can I somehow set up a newsletter on Github pages / Jekyll?

        Perhaps you can look at similar products/technologies to see how they get users? Best of luck :)
