We shipped a Search feature to every Hashnode blog to help readers find specific articles on your blog very fast.

Blog search on Hashnode

This feature is auto-enabled and is available for every Hashnoder.

Hotjar integration

Hotjar is behavior analytics and user feedback service that helps you understand your website users' behavior and get their feedback through tools such as heatmaps, session recordings, and surveys.

The Hotjar integration on Hashnode powered blogs will enable every Dev Blogger to understand their readers better. Find out more in this article by Catalin Pit.

Connect a GitHub repo as a source for your articles

A few weeks ago, one of our community members Simon Hรธiberg created an interesting feature request for Hashnode to support connecting a GitHub repository as a source for every article published on your Hashnode powered blog.

We thought it was fascinating and started working on it.

GitHub Source for Hashnode articles

We are happy to announce that you can now connect a GitHub repository as a source for your Hashnode articles. With this, you can use your favorite editor to write your article, and as soon as you commit it to your GitHub repository, it gets published on Hashnode automatically!

Learn more in this article by our founder Sandeep Panda. ๐Ÿ™Œ

This feature is in private beta and currently available to Hashnode Ambassadors.
