HIVE-HYPE #1: our first week on Hive!
Hello everyone! Welcome to the first edition of HIVE-HYPE!
HIVE-HYPE will become a weekly post where I recap some of the exciting news, updates, events, and posts from the past week on the Hive platform. My plan is to have this bee a helpful resource to check-in on to make sure you're all caught up with the latest & greatest on Hive. If you have any posts / suggestions you want me to consider for next week's showcase, feel free to drop me a comment down below & I'll have a look :^)
NOTE: As this was our very first week on Hive, you should know that this post is going to be considerably larger than the others. We have LOTS of projects that have migrated, so get ready for an avalanche of info!
Dapps + Software
Hive picked up a load of new fun goodies to it's ecosystem this week, let's take a look!
Hive Keychain is the best way to easily & securely log in to your favorite dapps running on Hive. Being a port of the old Steem Keychain, it has all the same ease-of-use & quality-security that you've come to expect from it. Props to @stoodkev for the impressive work.
@therealwolf has ported the old SteemDapps site over to the, much better ;^), HiveDapps site & now we all have a simple & easy place to see all the dapps for Hive!
Arguably the best frontend in the game, @peakd, has been hard at working building a whole slew of updates, upgrades, and fantastic changes to Peakd. I highly recommend this frontend. Plus, the team is amazing!
Another popular frontend + mobile app team, @esteemapp, has released the Hive update for both desktop & mobile esteem apps! Plus, they got a pretty slick new logo. Double-plus, they have free sign-ups that are working super smooth for new users!
Nice work @good-karma and team!
@pharesim shares HiveInvite, a tool to easily onboard new people onto Hive! I used it already to bring in someone from Reddit. It works great!
Hive.Vote allows you to setup a load of auto-voting features, including both upvotes & downvotes. It offers curation trails, and fanbase support. Very good for automating your Hive support!
@emrebeyler has been hard at work porting over a whole slew of dapps to Hive!
- First up, we got the news that dPoll is coming over to Hive
- Second, he brings a HIVE price ticker for OSX status bars
- Third, he showcases the Hive Downvote Explorer
- And finally, he's brought Infestor Account Creation Over To Hive.
...Jesus christ man, slow down! It's too much to keep up with!
@engrave gives a very helpful & easy tool to replace all your content on Steem with links prompting users to read it on Hive instead. It's your content, you should have control over where it lives!
@inertia shares HiveSQL for Ruby, which is a very helpful tool for any Ruby programmers out there that want to make use of the hivesql subscription service.
My boy @thecrazygm has released some more updates for HiveView - an open-sourced frontend alternative.
He's been hard at work on this thing for the past couple of days, and it's been amazing to see his progress. Can't wait for this thing to fully get out there in the world!
Bonus: He's also shared a nifty python-library that allows you to drop all your delegations to 0, so you can have a fresh start :^)
@techcoderx introduces Hive blockchain support for dTube via his "OneLoveIPFS" uploader. This dude has been a consistent & hard-working developer, props to him for his work ethic!
Ports & Supports
services, initiatives, and more that are ported to Hive & will continue their support for this platform
MinnowSupport is now on Hive! ( although, perhaps they should be called "BeeSupport" now? lol )
@themarkymark brings his global blacklist API over to Hive which helps identify spammers & plagiarists.
@steembasicincome has successfully migrated over to Hive & are now running on both chains. However, you are able to transfer your SBI units from Steem over to Hive if you wish!
Steemfeed-JS is now Hive compatible & easier to use!
Awesome Community Resources
Graphics, tips, guides, and more from the amazing Hive community!
@nateaguila provides a bunch of free graphics for the Hive community for use in posts & more! Nice work!
@zord189 is back with Hive-branded "signatures" to stand out on Hive. Get yours today!
witness news, announcements, updates, and more
@bluerobo has setup a witness and mined his first block on Hive! How exciting :^)
@cadawg has also mined his first Hive-only block! It's so fun to see the witnesses posting stuff like this :^)
For those of you who don't know, @prc is a long time former-Steem now Hive user, who has done a lot of great stuff. Chief among them being the developer of dSound which is basically our version of SoundCloud.
He's a great dude & deserves your vote!
