This was ripped from an email I sent to users last week. Sharing here for completeness since I intend to cross-post product updates and other announcements here from now on.

In case you haven't heard yet, Reflame was officially launched on Show HN last week. This means anybody with an account (including you!) can now use Reflame to deploy React web apps instantly, completely free!

The reception to the launch was better than I could have ever hoped for. Our post got to 6th place on the front page, and stayed at #1 on the Show HN page for the entire day. This graph of unique visits to over the last 7 days tells the story of the launch much better than I ever could in words:


These 5.2K unique visits turned into over 100 new signups (and counting), which is more than double the size of our existing user base. I've already seen the beginnings of some very cool apps getting built on Reflame by these new users (perhaps you're one of them?), which makes me deeply excited about the future!

Whether you're a long-time user who helped improve Reflame with your feedback along our journey up to this point, or a new user who supported our launch by upvoting our Show HN post and signing up, I'd like to extend to you my deepest gratitude.

Your time is valuable, and I will never take for granted the fact that you shared it with me to try out Reflame. Over the next few months and years, I hope to repay you for that time many times over by making sure you never have to wait for another deploy ever again.

I can't wait to see what we'll build together! :)
