Looking back on 2023


2.87 million invoked operations, almost 4,000 monthly active users and many more numbers that our telemetry has provided us with over the last year.

At the end of February 2023, we released our first 2023 release 1.10.0 with the new CLI, operations tabs and history support for operations. This was followed by a small bugfix release 1.10.1 three weeks later in March. Another release 1.11.0 was released in August, with a focus on improving the user experience. This was followed by a small bugfix release 1.11.1 just two days later, to prevent crashes on MacOS. The last release 1.12.0 of the year 2023 was released in November, bringing the new timing tab, server-sent events for REST, and a dialog for unimported operations.

Monthly active users

This chart shows monthly active users over the year. The years 2021 and 2022 are added for comparison. As you can see, in November 2023 we are almost at the 4,000 monthly active users mark. The dip in December is due to the Christmas holidays.

Invoked operations

In 2023, many more operations were invoked. While last year we had almost 2 million invoked operations, in 2023 we had 2.87 million, an increase of +37.5%.

New users

Compared to the year 2022 in almost every month we got more new users, except in July and August, which is due to a viral post on HackerNews. In total, we had 11,138 new users in 2022 and 12,805 in 2023, an increase of +15.0%.


The vast majority of the invoked operations are still gRPC operations, but we can see that the use of REST is increasing. In 2022, REST operations accounted for a share of 0.77%. This increased to 3.36% in 2023.

Why telemetry is helpful

You're probably not a big fan of telemetry. We're not really either, but when it comes to our own product, it's quite useful. For example, we can look at exactly what types of importer and authentication are being used and focus on developing those features.

It is important to note that we only collect minimal anonymous telemetry data and this is completely transparent in the documentation. We appreciate every user who does not deactivate telemetry.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all users for using Kreya, giving us feedback and helping us to keep developing an awesome product. As always, do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected] with any requests, feedback or just to say hello.

Good luck in the new year and see you soon. 👋
