Announcing Dashboard and Analytics shutdown


When we launch the new site next week it’s going to be a site generated using Jekyll (the static site generator used by for instance GitHub Pages). This will improve responsiveness and reduce complexity. All of the content will be readily available and easy to update.

The content of the asset portal will be generated in the same way. The existing database of assets have been moved into this repository where each asset is defined as a small snippet of JSON data. This data will act as input to our site generator for the Asset Portal. The presentation will be more or less the same but we will show less information and refer to the project URL (usually a GItHub repo) for additional information. Submitting a new asset can be done by creating a ticket in the asset repository or via a form on the Asset Portal (which will generate a ticket). Modifying an existing asset is done via a PR.

Hey all!

I’ve been a bit away from defold over the last few months, and now coming back the dashboard has disappeared and I can’t seem to be able to log in (the website that is opened when trying to login can’t be reached).

Any idea? I’m not sure if I can download my projects then?

Thanks in advance for your help,




I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t seen or heard about this. We have tried our best to communicate it to all of our users:

The dashboard was shut down on the 22nd of September. This was preceded by multiple communications on the subject. We have sent three newsletters to all of our users, active and inactive. The first was sent on the 23rd of August, 30 days prior to shutdown. The second was sent on the 3rd of September and the third and last one on the 17th of September. We have also posted about it here on the forum, on Twitter and on Facebook.

If you haven’t downloaded your projects I’m afraid they are no longer available, unless you have local copies of the projects on your computer.
