Between June 2014 and December 2022, Hackster collaborated with Arduino to establish “Project Hub”, a customised project sharing experience on Arduino based on the Hackster platform. Together we grew it into a space that hosts thousands of well-documented, open source Arduino projects that were shared on both Arduino and Hackster platforms. Beginning January 1, 2023, Arduino will relaunch Project Hub in order to better customise their users’ project sharing experience, further integrate with Arduino Cloud and better align with their new features. The two platforms will no longer be dynamically synced.

If you're like to share your Arduino projects on Hackster, tag your Arduino product in the project BOM and it will appear on hackster.io/arduino, a platform still moderated by the Arduino team.

Q: I created a Project Hub account on Arduino’s website. Why do I have a Hackster account?

A: Project Hub was a white label product hosted and managed by the Hackster platform. When you created an account on Project Hub, a mirrored account was created on Hackster using your Arduino email. This allowed you to submit projects and interact with other projects on Project Hub.

Q: What will happen to my existing projects after the new Arduino Project Hub goes live on January 1, 2023?

A: If you submitted your projects through Hackster’s website, your projects will remain accessible on your Hackster profile. If you submitted your projects through Arduino’s website, your projects will automatically be republished on Arduino’s new Project Hub and remain accessible through your Hackster profile.

Q: I have projects on Project Hub but they’re not appearing. Where did they go?

A: Projects created before August 2022 will be available on Arduino’s new Project Hub platform on January 1, 2023. Projects created between September 2022 and December 2022 will be available on the new platform on February 1, 2023. Any projects submitted to the new Project Hub can be managed through your Arduino account.

Q: I publish my projects on Hackster and often see them on Project Hub too. Will they be on the new platform?

A: No. Only projects submitted through Project Hub will be relaunched on the new Project Hub. You’ll have to re-publish your Hackster project on the new Project Hub manually. Because Project Hub was a Hackster white label product, Arduino administrators had the ability to also feature Hackster projects on their Project Hub. Once the site is relaunched on their own platform, they will no longer have access to Hackster data.

Q: How do I manage my projects and account on Hackster?

A: You must log into your Hackster user account to manage your projects and/or your account. If you created an account on Arduino’s website, you can log into your Hackster account using the Arduino single sign-on (SSO) oauth option. You can also try using Hackster’s other SSO methods (Google, Facebook, Github). If you need to reset your password, click “reset password” link to set a new password. If you’re still having trouble, contact [email protected].

Q: Can I export all my project data from Hackster and import it to the new Arduino page?

A: No, unfortunately you cannot export project data on Hackster. Arduino’s new Project Hub will not support project imports.

Q: How do I delete my Hackster account?

A: Log in to your account, navigate to “Account Settings”, then click the red “Delete my account” button. You will be asked to confirm this decision before it’s final. This will permanently delete your account and all your content. This action is permanent and irreversible.

Q: I want to keep my accounts on both websites. Can I still manage my content in one place?

A: No. Beginning January 1, 2023, you will need to manage your content on each site separately. Projects submitted on both Arduino Project Hub and Hackster in or before December 2022 will continue to be accessible on Hackster. Only projects submitted on Arduino’s Project Hub will automatically be imported to their new Project Hub website. You can manage that content by logging into your Arduino account. After December 2022, any projects or project edits that take place on Arduino’s new website will not be reflected on Hackster.

Q: I can’t log into my Arduino account and I want to manage my projects. What should I do?

A: If you’re having trouble logging into Arduino, contact their help desk at arduino.cc/en/contact-us.
