Glitch announced that they’re preparing a new offering. Let’s start a thread to discuss it!
Here’s their announcement below, from an email:
You’ve been using Glitch for a little while, and hopefully you’ve been enjoying it. There’s something special happening on Glitch soon, and we wanted to let you know about it.
We believe everyone should be able to create the web—whether that’s a personal website or a full-stack app—using Glitch. We’re about to get a whole lot closer to that goal.
If you’ve been creating with Glitch, you probably noticed that your project has a few limitations: a limited amount of memory and disk space, rate limits, and sleep mode after 5 minutes if no one is visiting (React rebuilds, hello).
There are pretty good reasons for those limitations: More memory, “always on,” and no rate limits for every one of the five million projects created on Glitch? Our server costs would go through the roof. We wouldn’t be able to provide the Glitch experience you love for as many people as we do.
But we know people want more . So we’re introducing something big: A way to build more powerful apps without those limitations.
Based on how you’ve been using Glitch so far, we thought you might be interested in getting an early look.
We’ve always prided ourselves on being a bright little corner of the internet. That’s only possible because creators like you have decided to build a home here.
As we take the next step, we want you there with us. Let’s make your apps more powerful.
Your Friends at Glitch
P.S. — Sign up early enough and you might even get the chance to beta test our new product before we release it publicly.
And here’s a tweet on the subject: https://twitter.com/glitch/status/1230550563059904513
What an exciting milestone. I personally am more interested in finding creative uses for the free offering though. There are other hosting providers on my list to check out when I want to make the transition to paid services. I hope Glitch won’t reduce the free offering !
