DailyDrip is building an open-source forum engine with an Elm frontend. We’re doing it via a Kickstarter campaign that has just 8 days remaining. We’d love your support! More details below.
There isn’t a good alternative to Google Groups for forums, and there should be an easy open source alternative for comment systems. An Elm frontend is a no-brainer.
Starting in January we will spend the first month doing weekly design and planning meetings with our supporters. We will also share the plans and designs along the way. We would love feedback on the project early on from our backers.
After the backend and API are completed, we will build an Elm interface that replaces the existing HTML and provides a richer experience to the end user as a Single Page Application.
We plan on building Firestorm using Web Components - my recent experiments with them have been extremely promising and should be a really modular way to build out the front end.
You can find more details at the Kickstarter campaign site.
