New user interface for podcasters

We just launched a new app design for Transistor! Here's how it looks on mobile:

And here's what the desktop version looks like:

Under the hood, we're using Tailwind CSS and Alpine.js to create a UI that's both mobile-friendly and blazing fast. We've reduced the size of our Javascript by 43%, and our CSS by 82.5%.

We've already received some great feedback on it:

"The updated Transistor admin panel is one of the nicest hosting interfaces I've ever used (and I've been through many)." – Ollie Judge

New features in this release

This release also includes some notable new features and enhancements:

  • New mobile view (upload and edit episodes from your phone)

  • Drag-n-drop uploading (audio and image files)

  • Easily search for episode titles and podcast titles

  • You can now change a team member's access level

  • For private podcasts:

    • Put your company's domain name on a safelist for invites

    • Send a reminder email to all subscribers who have not activated

Here's a demo of the drag-and-drop file uploader:

As always, you can host separate podcasts, all from the same account. This includes our new private podcasts:

Host multiple podcasts from one account

We've been working on this for a long time, so we're excited that podcasters can finally use it.
