Hi hotgluers!

Welcome to our sixth hotglue melt - we have got some awesome updates to share!

Product Updates 🚀

Updated Landing Pages 🎨

We have updated our landing pages to more closely match our brand and explain the possible use-cases for hotglue. This includes an interactive preview of the new hotglue widget, more emphasis on the developer experience, updated graphics, and more. See a preview below:


Updated integrations ⚙️

In July, our integrations team focused on expanding our unified schemas and library of targets (integrations that push data to other platforms). Notably we have released new versions of targets that use the unified schemas: Salesforce, HubSpot, Xero, and NetSuite.

Additionally, we have released new Magento v1, Wix, GitHub, and Stripe taps that feature better performance and data models. We also released improvements to the Facebook Ads, Amazon Seller, Prestashop, Chargebee, HubSpot, Magento, and Zendesk taps.
