and now we're talking about a community from the bottom to the top!
kudos to the core team and future collaborators!

Thank you! Started from the bottom now we're here (together)!

First merged open source PR goes to @_bigblind


Congrats Ben. I'm very excited because of open source. Now, I'm reviewing the code base of

Thanks to all developers who contributed to Most of the developer read articles. They improved themselves and I also improved myself thanks to


Yes! A full-loop. helping people code better so (among other things) they can help An awesome virtuous cycle.

Thanks Isaac, you've been an awesome supporter in helping us get to this point.

I imagine the whole DEV team being like:

happy dancing

Right on time for my college semester break starting tomorrow :D

I'm super happy and excited for the future of this community!

The reality is that we're more exhausted than everything. Post launch has been a matter of dealing with little things here and there all day, but...

It's pretty cool to be number one trending on GitHub

Say wuuuuuuut!

Congratulations πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

I'm so excited to check out PWA practices in the code base.
DEV has been the best PWA experience I ever had. I've been using
the App button to browse DEV on my phone and never actually going to
the website. I'm learning more on PWA and it's great to have an open
source project like DEV to learn from.

Thank you so much!

Thanks Meghan! I think you’ve got the most decorated profile of anyone in the community in terms of badges.

Woah, really? 😲😊 Aww thank you, I really love DEV πŸ’– was the most anticipated OSS project for me. I just went through the code, There is just so much to learn from the architecture for delivery blazing fast & robust application. Thank you πŸ™, Dev to team, for open sourcing it

Think it's about time I learn Ruby, great work everyone!

You don't have to know Ruby...but it might help πŸ™ƒ

It's a language I've been wanting to learn for a while, just never got round to it :p

Congratulations! This is a huge step!

Chasing after after your GitHub star count!

I believe it won't take too long! :)

Congratulations guys and gals! So excited to be a part of this as it makes its rounds! is going to continue to be THE space for breaking down barriers and being the legs to the table of the engineering community!


I'm looking forward to poking around and finding something to contribute. I have an idea of where to look, but I need to find the code first πŸ˜‰

Congrats guys!!!! So happy to be part of when you guys achieved this great milestones

I wonder how the progressive webapp is made with the full size icon. Whenever I make one there is a small chrome icon next to it. (on android, don't know about ios)
Anyone know how to get a PWA like dev. To?

w00t! So excited for y’all. Thanks for the Corgibytes shout out. :)

Congrats team! Big milestone. Looking forward to making more contributions post-vacation.

Nick, thank you for being an awesome DEV member and contributor!
Have a great vacation :)

Congrats team!!! I will learn ruby and this's really helpful for me ... Thanks you so much !!!

That's awesome, congrats!

I've been waiting for this, I was so hyped I even starred the repo yesterday... which make it the first repo I ever starred πŸ˜‚ (never quite found a reason to star anything on GitHub)

I saw using preact and i would like to know the reason behind it because i don't think size of React and ReactDOM would matter much on big app like as diffing and reactivity is not good compared to React.

Congats! Y'all been working hard on this!

also every time I refresh the page there is a new gifπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

dev open source gif ex

I'm just gonna keep refreshing the page until I see that Beyonce gif again πŸ˜†

My current one is this one and it's perfect

Never heard of this site before, just saw it in github trending, but damn, this site is fast. I would love if other sites would improve to your level...


Hi and welcome to the community!
According to Google translate, you say that the community is the heart and I fully agree with you. For ease of communication though, it might be better to stick to English instead of Thai so everyone can read and understand your contributions

Wow! I love opensource communities a lot. It helps me to share, exchange, and benefit from others. Thank you.

well, this is a Huge chance for me to advance my learning...

Now we need the community to help to implement a REST API so we can start having fun with it ;)

nice opening, this isn't the finish, it's the start, nailed it.

Great! Congratulations!
Do you have any API that we can use to build a costumed client app?

sources have pretty good quality :) thank you for sharing!

Amazing! as a Ruby developer, I’m even more excited. Being an open source contributors is awesome.... I’m getting really inspired.

Thanks for keep giving,

Thank you for the trust and congratulations on the release!

Congrats y’all. It takes big courage to put your product out there for the masses!

It's time to learn Ruby :))

This is so exciting to see! Congrats, everyone!

Congratulations, I was waiting for this day! :D

Huge milestone, a big congrats to the entire team on this accomplishment. Maybe I can open a PR soon πŸ˜€

Congrats πŸŽ‰ Really love how detailed the general readme and contributing guidelines are!

I must say, the README is perfect, it has badges, clear explanation of technical requirements, etc...

I'm really excited to see what will happen with some OSS magic !

Great move!

It also an opportunity for RoR new comers (like myself) to learn from a real living application.

Congrats guys
I remember my first PR was related to a typo in dev to repo
Glad to be part of this awesome community

Wow that's really nice ! Thanks a lot ! is the most friendly, social, interactive and welcome place for developers. i find … too toxic and … too indifferent (not naming them particularly).

I hope this accelerates growth, feature-wise ❀️

I never said congrats here! I'm super happy to support and be here amongst amazing people! ❀️

Thank you and Congratulations~

I understand the choice, but always πŸ’”πŸ˜ž to see AGPL.

I want to be part of Dev...please teach me to practise and how to start it.Thanks

@ben I would like to help out with the development of the Android app. Can we discuss the approach you are willing to take for the native app?

@ben , how do I see the number of posts views? Thanks.

What a great effort and thanks so much for contributing to the open source community! Awesome stuff!

Congrats to the team! Keep making awesome things, now together.

Great approach. Thanks for the free source code and the free stickers that I have received.

Awesome work and amazing faith in the FOSS community. Opening up your hard work and dreams to a community can be a scary proposition. The and friends have done an amazing job.

Great move! Open source for a great and open community :)

If it wouldn't be Ruby, I'd certainly would like to contribute. I think I'll rewrite it in Elixir... :P

Congratulations guys! Haven't been long in here, a month or so, but I already feel at home with all the awesome people in this community. Great work to all you guys!

Congrats! I know this was a big undertaking.

So rad! Congratulations, folks! ❀️

Hi guys,

I'm new to node.js. Some links on my company website stopped working. The website is and the 2 links in question are at the top of the page "Open an account" and "Try a free demo". When you click on either an unexpected error has occurred is flagged up. Attached is the errors generated in the logs. I need to get them working by tomorrow so any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

Kind Regards,
