Nothing but love and much congratulations to the WooThemes team on continuing to develop a product worth downloading.
Isn’t that the neat thing about open source? You can entirely validate, at least generally speaking, the quality and success of a product by just looking at the sheer number of downloads.
Sure, downloads is just one of many signals of success and especially quality, but if you back that up with an established company with a brand that’s worth noting, it just represents all-around goodness.
Friday marked a monumental milestone. After 52 releases, 35 official themes, 192 official extensions, a lot of hard work, and a whole bunch of community contribution WooCommerce has surpassed 1,000,000 downloads. Only 626 days from it’s launch!
It’s hard to imagine that just 626 days ago WooThemes announced their modest entry into the eCommerce space and now we have what some consider is the forerunner in this category.
If anything, it goes to show that WordPress is still a very open market and people can make a strong and significant dent into the ecosystem if they put the right amount of time, energy, resolve, and quality into their products.
It’s still very much anyone’s game, as they say. Congrats my friends and keep on keeping on!
Oh, and of course, they have a special going on as well – 30% off:
