Wow. I saw the video and was completely blown away. This is definitely something I would use everyday. I hate spending time opening up different documentation pages and then finding examples of api usage on stack overflow.
Awesome stuff @antonio_bustamante .
Would absolutely love to get an invite! I've signed up!
Matt Hamlin: Definitely interested in seeing how this can improve my workflow when working. I won't have anymore excuses for jumping back to my browser and wasting time.
Jake Mor: Possibly the best hunt of the year. Awesome job!
Karthik Varma: I need a invite please @antonio_bustamante . Would love to try out #Kite
Le Kha: wow. very nice!!! I love it.
Derek Nuzum: Signed up! Can't wait to try this out. Looks really slick! I can see it being extremely useful for users just starting out their programming careers, but even as an experienced dev, I see this being extremely useful. Especially in hunting down those tiny syntax errors that can drive us crazy for hours!
paulkarayan: This has so much potential. Can't wait to try it!
Christopher Leach: Looks awesome! Can I get an early invite?
Sachin Rekhi: Looks awesome! Reminds me of my productive days in a real IDE like Visual Studio :) Would love to try it out!
Thomas Arend: Augmented reality for coders. This looks awesome! Congrats Antonio and Kite team.
Jamie Akers: Count me in. This describes the lives of developers and QA automation engineers across the world. Looking forward to Visual Studio (full or Code) integration :)
Frank Lai: I desperately need Kite now. An invite please.
Kristian Muñiz: This looks great!
I'm Antonio, a designer at Kite, and I'm excited to share with you what we've been working on!
Kite is a heads up display (HUD) for programmers that surfaces proven engineering knowledge in a live internet connected environment helping developers write better code, faster. Kite is the first tool to offer a connected way to program; it is integrated with text editors and it uses type inference to reveal examples as programmers type without having to leave the screen for a web browser.
We hope you get a chance to check out Kite - we're all very excited about it. The team will be hanging out here for a while and will try to answer questions, and you can also ping us at email@example.com!
P.S.: We have a limited number of invites we can support now. We'll send an invite to the first 50 people that leave a comment asking for an invite on the thread! You can also sign up at http://kite.com/#signup !
Charles Lai: dang great idea
Walter Rafelsberger: Looks great! Can you share more about your plans/schedule to support other languages than python?
Jonathan Hernandez: one thing, amazing!
Vali Draganescu: Nice, it would be great if this would also work with Xcode or Android Studio. I guess it would be able to show the readme page or usage of github hosted libraries. I hate jumping in the browser all the time and searching on github how should I use a library.
Congrats on the launch Adam and Antonio!
Can you tell us more about the inspiration for Kite?
Tristan Celebi: Looks terrific :) . I am curious how and when it will work with Xcode/Swift???
Yann Bertrand: I've been using Dash especially when I don't have internet. Is there something planned for offline usage? Kite seem to be so much more convenient though. I would pay to use this!
Motoki Wu: Very cool! We've been working on something like this for writing. Does Kite spot mistakes and recommend solutions?
Awesome !!! @antonio_bustamante is the name taken from Hunter X Hunter?
I'm totally in, can you send me an invite?
@eriktorenberg Thank you!! One day, Adam realized we, as programmers, were spending countless hours just searching for information on the Internet instead of coding, which made us less productive. Honestly, also a bit frustrated. Adam and the rest of the team have been working really hard for the last 2 years to make a product that will bridge the gap between coding skills and knowledge.
The metaphor I use sometimes to explain how important this is to us is: imagine thousands of very skilled developers working in these tiny caves, with just a tiny blurry window where they can see outside. That's how it's been for years. We want all programmers share and recycle knowledge in a much easier way :)
Chris: @antonio_bustamante any invites left? Kite looks like it might be my new best friend.
Jason Shultz: @antonio_bustamante @kite I'm probably way too late for the invite train. :( if you find any laying around in a box somewhere or possibly stuck up in a tree, could you send me one? I also signed up at the url, just waiting for me to be chosen as tribute.
Derek Nuzum: @antonio_bustamante Haven't seen much for updates from Kite. Anything you could share with Product Hunters?
Chirag K C:
@antonio_bustamante @kite Has this thread reached 50 yet? Ha ha.. Hopefully I'm in the list. I've also signed up on your website.
GREAT product guys. This is probably the best find on ProductHunt for me. Keep up the great work.
Pierrick: @antonio_bustamante @kite I may be late to the party but I'd love to get an invite to try it out. One of the best product I've seen in months and also one who is gonna be very helpful on a daily basis!
Antonio Bustamante: @aditya_shirole Thank you so much! We hate that too, and we hope Kite helps developers as much as it has helped us building it (a sort of Kite-ception :) )
bmeadowcroft: @antonio_bustamante if you have any invites left, I'd appreciate one. Brennanmeadowcroft+kite@gmail
Danthuluri Aadi Narayana Varma: @antonio_bustamante @kite That's just one Incredible tool for Developers and Geeks, would like to give it a try! I have signed up on your site using varma2friend at gmail dot com
Damian Esteban: @antonio_bustamante I can't wait to try this out. It's very possible that within a few years developers will be shocked if you *are not* using kite or something similar. EDIT: I wish I had asked for an invite along with my original comment, but it's all good. Excited to try it out eventually :).
@antonio_bustamante @eriktorenberg Wow, your idea is simple but soooo useful and none never think about the time that developers spent to find the right codes!! Kite will save a lot of precius time to developers! And congrats for the user interface, it looks perfect!
And what about the name and the logo?
Can't wait to try Kite!
Jon Wood: @antonio_bustamante awesome! Yes would love an invite!!
Bruno Costa: @antonio_bustamante congrats, this looks great! I'd love to try it out. Hit me with an invite ;) thanks
Jerome Dahdah: @antonio_bustamante Hey, I just signed up on your site (parasight at gmail). Hope I'm not too late to make it into the first batch, I'm really excited to give this a try!
Cody: @antonio_bustamante this looks awesome. Great job! I signed up on the site looking forward to test driving this.
Jonathan Z. White: P.S. shoot me an invite @jonathanzwhite 😉
Antonio Bustamante: @thinktankhero Thank you so much!
@iamunr Thank you, Paul! I totally hear you about the privacy. We care a lot about the privacy of our user's code, and we explain it all at http://kite.com/privacy
With respect to invites, we're just scaling up, as any product, to ensure it works smoothly for all users. We'll be sending out more and more invites soon :)
Antonio Bustamante: @jakelprice Thank you so much! We care a lot about privacy and we made sure that was clear from the beginning :)
Antonio Bustamante: @samuelpolat Very soon!
Antonio Bustamante: @avoision Sure will! I think all of us in the team have a bit of Joshua :)
Antonio Bustamante: @tristancelebi We plan to ramp up support for more languages and editors, and Obj-C and Swift are definitely on our list!
Antonio Bustamante: @leachy114 We'll send you one!
Antonio Bustamante: @plusepsilon Yes! We're able to detect mistakes as you code and offer one-click fixes :)
Antonio Bustamante: @walterra We plan to ramp up support for more languages and editors in the upcoming weeks! :)
@antonio_bustamante :) That really looks like a super weapon
Can't wait to try it out
Dmitry Suholet: @antonio_bustamante nice job! Can't wait to try it out :)
Antonio Bustamante: @sachinrekhi Thank you so much! Definitely going for productivity :) We're excited for you to try it out
Ryan J A Murphy:
@antonio_bustamante @kite Likewise, I'd love to beta.
Fabulous pitch/demo video and website, btw! Except that I am in disbelief at the disclaimer "No nerds were harmed..."; there had to be a missing semicolon moment at some point in development!
Antonio Bustamante: @alaouisolaimani Thank you! It's actually not taken from Hunter X Hunter, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was subliminally in our minds this whole time!
Derek Nuzum: @antonio_bustamante Fantastic! Cannot wait!
Antonio Bustamante: @dnuzum Great! We'll be sending those this week and early next week!
Derek Nuzum: @antonio_bustamante Also, if it wasn't clear, I signed up on the site and here hoping for an invite in the first batch. When will these get handed out? :p
Antonio Bustamante: @jamiequackers Thank you, we're looking forward to help developers across the world! We plan to absolutely support Visual Studio!
Mark Brady: @antonio_bustamante I've just signed up. Looking forward to the invite
@vfdraganescu Agreed! We plan to ramp up support for different languages and code editors, and we definitely plan to support Xcode and Android Studio.
We hate jumping between browser and editor too!
Derek Nuzum: @antonio_bustamante I hear that. Sometimes there is just too much to keep track of.
Antonio Bustamante: @reimertz Thank you! Will do!
Antonio Bustamante: @paulkarayan We can't wait for you to try it either! :)
Antonio Bustamante: @techno Thank you so much! We're excited for you to try it out!
Antonio Bustamante: @dnuzum Totally! We started working on Kite because we were tired of spending so much time looking for information on the Internet, rather than actually focus on coding. Sometimes the smallest syntax error can lead you to mysterious paths in Google, with 50 tabs and broken pieces of code. This is our grain of sand trying to fix that :)
Antonio Bustamante: @jakemor Thank you so much! :)
Mike Lehmann: @antonio_bustamante @kite Just found this through another source and went to Hunt it and saw it already was! Looks really cool and as a freelance developer, I am excited to try it with a number of languages. I use a few different IDE's as well so it will be nice to have this across all. How can I get in on the private beta?!?!?! I signed up on your site
