On May 10th, I Announced that the Insomnia desktop app is now open source under the GNU AGPLv3 license.
If you like this post, be sure to check out the other recaps. There's one every month!
May Metrics Overview
Because the open source announcement made it to the front page of Hacker News, there was a massive 65% increase in new users. This also lead to a significant bump in paid customers.
|Metric||Value This Month||Change||Reaction|
|Active App Users||33,452||+38%||😀|
|New App Users||16,543||+65%||😀|
|Monthly Recurring Revenue||$848||+28%||😀|
|New Trial Customers||455||+103%||😀|

The open source announcement also amassed a tonne of unexpected positivity from users. Countless people have reached out to say "thanks" and many others have submitted bug reports, feature request, and pull requests.
I want to give a huge "thanks" to everyone for all the support, and I can't wait to see what happens next!
