Snippet Embedding!

We pushed a new release today, with a bunch of bug fixes for mobile devices and other fixes elsewhere on the site. But our biggest change this week is a new share dialog with the ability to embed snippets into any web page. Here’s an example, you can click it to jump straight back to…

Upload your datasheets!

The launch went well, and we got some great feedback from a wide range of people. There were a lot of requests for more datasheets, some great ideas regarding how the snipping functionality should work, requests for Google login, and a whole host of other suggestions and bug reports. The request that seemed to come…

Datasheet.net is live!

Its finally time. We think we’ve been keeping this to ourselves long enough now and we’re happy with the functionality we have. Its useful, and stable, and hopefully won’t fall over when we open this up to more people. So its finally time for us to declare that Datasheet.net is live! What’s so special about…

What’s your favorite?

We’ve had a few people ask for this since we released the alpha – you can now favorite Snippets and datasheets! Look for the little star on your Snippets and datasheets, click it and you will have added that item to your account. This lets you pull content in from other users into your account…

Datasheet.net at OSHW!

Datasheet.net launched into Beta this week and to celebrate we decided to perform the launch at the OSHW conference  All attendees were given an invite into the beta program and we spent the day demonstrating where we currently are with the product. The feedback was excellent, and we got to speak to some really interesting…

Collections

We’d started to build up quite the list of snippets, it was starting to become a bit of a headache. So we figured it was time we added some features to help with that. You can now create Collections, with a name and short description. You can then add snippets to your collections to help…

Share your snippets!

So the Alpha is going well, people seem to like what we’re doing here so that’s great. We’ve pushed a few new versions and hopefully ironed out a few issues, but its time for some new features. First off we’ve added the ability for Datasheet.net to remember where you last were. It annoyed us that every…

The Alpha

We’ve been toiling away for the last month to put together a first pass at improving datasheets and its now finally time for the rest of the world to see what we’ve been up to. Obviously this is just an Alpha release, but its fairly functional and should be enough for the lucky few we’ve…

There must be a better way…

We want to change the way engineers work with datasheets. Right now they’re these dead tree style documents, they’re static, they don’t change, they don’t work anything out for us, and they certainly aren’t easy to find things inside. Its time we change that so we’ve made a start. When looking at what we hate…

We hate datasheets

If you’re like us then when you’re designing a circuit or investigating a component you are constantly referring to the same pages in your datasheets over and over again. You spend hours reading through sheets and find that one useful bit of information you needed, then you come back next month and do the same…
