HabitRPG and Beeminder have a remarkably similar history and remarkably similar users. We consider this a match made in heaven. In fact, we and the HabitRPG folks have been talking about this for literally years now, so we’re very excited to finally be shipping it, thanks to the hacking skills of our own Alice Monday, and with assistance from Alice Harris. As a welcome to HabitRPG users new to Beeminder, we’re starting with a recap. For Beeminder regulars who don’t already know about HabitRPG, we summarize that as well. If you’re already sold on Beeminder and HabitRPG separately, dive in and start using them together!
You’re probably here because you either know and love Beeminder, or you know and love HabitRPG. So hi there, friendly Habiteers! Since this is Beeminder turf we’ll start with a quick explanation of what Beeminder’s all about. (For the full Beeminder story, you could start with our inaugural blog post about akrasia and self-binding, a.k.a. commitment devices.)
