Q: What is HaloHub?
A: HaloHub is a community driven WebApp for the Halo community, developed by Halo fans for Halo fans! We want HaloHub to be the central source for everything Halo which includes well crafted news articles, videos, live streams, giveaways and much much more.
Q: What is a WebApp?
A: A Progressive WebApp (PWA) or WebApp for short, is basically a special kind of website. It’s designed from the ground up for the mobile web, so it should work just as well on smartphones and tablets as it does on a desktop or laptop computer. More importantly, a WebApp can be installed to your device, just like a native app. However, a WebApp takes up considerably less space and doesn’t require updates. In the very near future we also plan to offer offline support, so you can check in on HaloHub content through the WebApp without an internet connection.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: We have so many great ideas for the future of HaloHub, but it simply wasn’t impossible to include every idea we have in time for launch. Here are just a few of the things we plan to include in the future:
Regular first party video content
Halo MCC & Halo Infinite stat tracking
eSports articles, game coverage, fixtures
First-party tournaments and further giveaways
Support for community driven Halo projects
Halo inspired apparel and merchandise
Interactive community elements
Q: Why is HaloHub in beta?
A: The simple answer is, HaloHub is not finished yet and there is lots more we want to add and improve. The issue is, HaloHub is an volunteer effort that we have to work on in our spare time. However, if there is a lot of love and excitement for what we are doing, and yes maybe a few donations on Buy Me A Coffee, then we might be able to justify dedicating more time to development.
Q: Who’s behind HaloHub?
A: HaloHub was created by a team of professional developers and a handful of Halo fans; but there will be more opportunities to get to know the HaloHub team going forward. We’re also looking for people to join the team who may want to regularly contribute, if you’re interested drop us an email at: [email protected]
We hope this brief Q&A was informative and we hope that everyone enjoys what we are doing here at HaloHub! As always if you have any questions or suggestions, don’t be afraid to drop us an email!
