Announcing New Features on Previews and User History

Preview shared profiling data and keep a history of your shared profiles!

November 2, 2023

We are thrilled to announce two exciting new features on, our free profile data sharing service that has been aiding developers in analyzing profiling data seamlessly. Today, we are introducing "Previews" and "User History" to enhance your experience and make profile sharing and management even more effortless.

Introducing Previews: Visualize Before You Click

Sharing is caring, and when it comes to profiling, we understand the importance of quick and easy collaboration. With our new "Previews" feature, whenever you share a link to a flamegraph/iciclegraph on platforms like Twitter or Slack, a visual preview of the graph is generated and displayed as the OpenGraph preview image.

This means no more clicking through links to understand what’s on the other side. Your colleagues can now get a glimpse of the performance profile directly within the chat or social media feed, making it easier to decide whether to dive deeper into the analysis. It’s all about making the data accessible and understandable at a glance.

User History: Your Profiles, Organized

You asked for it, and we delivered. Introducing "User History," a feature that allows you to view the history of your uploaded profiles. We understand that performance profiling is an iterative process, and having quick access to past profiles is crucial.

With User History, you can now navigate through your previous uploads, compare different profiles, and track the progress of your performance optimization efforts over time. Everything is organized and available at your fingertips, ensuring that you can focus on what you do best - writing efficient, high-performance code.
