It kind of snuck up on me, but I actually managed to remember that today is the one-year anniversary of CSS3 PIE’s first public beta release. It’s been quite an exciting year since I unleashed this little thing out into the world!
In pure nerd style, here are some stats from the past year:
- 2.3 million page views from 452,000 unique visitors at css3pie.com
- 2700 posts by 760 users in 690 topics in the user forums
- 155,000 downloads
- 1056 followers on GitHub
- 1979 followers on Twitter (closing in on 2000, who will it be?)
- 156 commits to the master code branch with many more in other branches
What can’t be put into numbers, of course, is the overwhelmingly positive reaction from users around the world. It’s really been an awesome experience hearing words of enthusiastic support from hundreds of web developers whose lives are a little bit easier with PIE in their toolbox.
Further development is continuing steadily with help from some ambitious community members; stay tuned for a beta5 release coming in the next couple of weeks. Year two is going to be great!
