What's cooking on SourceHut? March 2021

Hi! Another month of development has passed, and I’m here to fill you in on what’s new. Another 686 signups this month has brought us to 21,041 users. As always, I’ll be counting on you to make the new users feel at home, please be patient with them and help them learn the ropes.

Last month, something suddenly came up and I had to skip the monthly Mumble call unannounced — my apologies! We’ll be holding the meeting as scheduled tomorrow at 16:00 UTC at, port 64738, in the sourcehut room.

The big news this month is that we shipped sourcehut pages, which provides static hosting for websites and Gemini capsules. 282 users have created a site with it so far — you should check it out, too! Getting a website published only takes a couple of minutes.’s initial GraphQL API is now available. Check out the playground here and our GraphQL docs if you’re not already familiar with how it works.

Next up is…

The GraphQL API for is now underway. This one is quite welcome, as is our oldest API and the most in need of an upgrade. It will also give us some opportunities to improve security for builds.

A minor update for the project hub this month: popular tags are now shown on the public index.
