Goodbye Hackpad, Hello Stekpad!

We've said it before and we will say it again, we love Hackpad, the tool that makes working together in documents easy and fun. We have something to tell you ... adopts Hackpad

At (we make installing, hosting and updating open source tools easy for everyone) we are fans of frictionless collaboration tool Hackpad. Write together, work together! Now is nearing its end (on July 19 it will be taken down), we are proud to tell you about our commitment to this great tool.

Our commitment

  • We launch Stekpad, a free hosted Hackpad service for public collaboration.
  • We maintain and develop the open source hackpad/hackpad branch. Developers and other users, join us on Github to make Hackpad even better!
  • We built an open source tool to migrate from to your own Hackpad install and published it on Github. And we help you to move from to
  • We introduce a paid Hackpad-service for teams on your own subdomain. We install, host and update so you can concentrate on the rest. See

If you want to migrate from to your own install or to, we help you. Read all about it at Stekpad.

By the way, if you like this? Go to Product Hunt, you know what to do ;-).

Why we love Hackpad? Have a look!

By the way, the team that made Hackpad (thanks a lot guys for making and open sourcing it) now works on Paper for Dropbox and that's a great tool too of course.
