hyper at 10,000 stars

Today, hyper reached 10,000 stars on GitHub!

What does that mean? Not much. It simply means ten thousand people clicked the star button for hyperium/hyper. But hey, I’m not one to give up a reason to celebrate!

I had projected the rate of stars per day, and knew we’d reach 10k around the beginning of August. On the 1st, I setup a little script to check the GitHub API every 30 minutes, print out the new number, and continue until it reached the target number. That happened around 1:30am Pacific Time, this morning!

Star counts every 30 minutes

Really, this is thanks to all of you, for contributing and using hyper. Thank you!
