Introducing Product Hunt Cards

Now you can embed products and comments on Medium and across the web 🌐

Two years ago, we launched an API to empower the creative and curious Product Hunt community to extend discovery beyond producthunt.com. It’s been fun to see what people build, from a “Tinder for Product Hunt” app to a destination of dead products, appropriately named Product Haunt.

We’re taking this a step further with the introduction of Cards. Now you can embed products anywhere on the web. It looks like this:

How it works

To add a product or comment card on your site, simply click the </> button on the product page to open a screen like this:

Next, copy and paste the code on your site. That’s it. ✨

If you’re writing on Medium, it’s even easier. Simply paste the product URL (e.g. https://www.producthunt.com/tech/slide), clap your hands 3 times, and hit ENTER.

Let’s have some fun

In celebration of these new superpowers, let’s do something fun.

Respond to this Medium post down below with an embed of your favorite recent product discovery. Bonus points if you tell us why you love it. We’ll send Product Hunt stickers to the first 100 replies. 😸
