When we came up with the concept for Little Warden, we planned that each person would add the Root URL and maybe a few subdomains and so we planned the backend and frontend to match this.
Well, it turns out there is a reason that all the startup books tell you to interview your customer base before you start to build stuff.
Turns out that Little Warden users like tracking pages as well as root domains and some of them like tracking 5000 or more pages on a single domain.
This has proved… interesting from a product perspective and whilst we’ve managed to make the product ‘work’ with this many URLs.. it wasn’t a great experience and certainly doesn’t fit in with the four keys that we try and run the company by.
Well, today I’d like to announce that we’ve launched the refresh of our internal system which means that URLs are grouped by domain or subdomain and you can quickly modify the checks and settings on a mass scale!
