Hi everyone πŸ‘‹

Let me start by introducing myself, I'm Alek, Senior Product Manager here at Hashnode. This is my first, of many, articles to come in the near future.

This new series will be dedicated to highlighting the best features, and changes we've shipped over the last month. With this being the first article, we have also included a few other features we want everyone to know about from the last few months - just incase you missed it.

Without further ado, lets get into it!


Product update: Snippets of what we've been working on πŸŽ‰

We're here to update you on Hashnode's latest and greatest improvements! Let's get started.

Revision History ⏱

Fresh design & dark mode

Hashnode’s mobile app has a completely new look and feel and a major performance improvement. It’s easier and more user-friendly than ever.

We have made the UI more clean and consistent. You're going to love the new experience.

Dark mode has been the most requested feature by the Hashnode Community, and it's finally here! πŸŒ“

Publish on behalf of the author or change authors

In team blogs you can now publish on behalf of an author or change the author of an article, as requested by the community.

Previously, owners and editors didn’t have this option, as a result, some authors were posting under other authors’ names.
