Who's looking for open source contributors? (Dec 10th edition)

Find something to work on or promote your project here.

Please shamelessly promote your project. Everyone who posted in previous weeks is welcome back this week, as always. 😄

This week I also added the tag #contributorswanted. If you want to make a standalone post looking for contributors, feel free to use that tag, along with any relevant language tags. If you're interested in keeping up with posts of that nature, follow the tag.

Happy coding!

Hi I'm Matt, I've devised a data structure to represent data on a webpage as component blocks (similar to Gutenberg: wordpress.org/gutenberg/), only my data structures are JSON and my language is JS/ Vue. I'm hoping to launch it as a web builder product in early January. Feel free to take a look and ask me any questions you might have!



Am I missing something? Where's the component structure? Where's the source code?


Hi Ankush, when I wrote the initial post I hadn't shipped the js in production mode and you could see the structure using the vue plugin. If you view the source of the page you'll see that there is only a <component> tag, although the data structure of the page can be viewed by typing App.data into the console when viewing the page. Let me know your thoughts!

Kinda disappointed by that, to be honest. 😐 Why not put it on GitHub and add some docs? It will make devs feel more comfortable and positive.

Sorry to disappoint Ankush. As you can see my code is in production, hence why it currently resides in a private repo. I would like to open source the js/vue modules I have written when I get the chance to. I was just trying to gauge interest in what I've done.


I've been working on a new Fortran testing framework. It's mostly complete, but it could use some beta testers to give it a go, and somebody to help fill in any missing assertEquals functions. Write up is here and my first example using it is here.


I'm Abdeladim, I'm a frontend developer, I have a solid experience in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, I didn't have the chance to work with ReactJs in my career so I'm looking for a real ReactJs project as a volunteer or contributor.


Can you please have a look at webatoms.in/samples.html and see if you could provide some insights?


Isn't Web Atoms tied to the .Net ecosystem? I noticed Xamarin mentioned there and concluded that! :P

No, Web Atoms is MVVM framework which can be extended to any framework, it can be used in browser and it can be used in Xamarin.Forms as we plan to add more platforms in near future, we chose Xamarin.Forms to easily develop apps for all mobile platforms with less code base.


We are working on a dormitory management system right here: github.com/coretabs/dorm-portal


We are trying to provide a solution for Cyprus universities' students so that they can find a place to stay in a much easier fashion.

Tech stack: Vue with Vuetify + Django with DRF (two separate projects, of course you can work just on one of them... or if you want both!)

We have simple and clear docs (and mockups) in case you're interested to know more: github.com/coretabs/dorm-portal/tr...

You can download Chrome ZenHub plugin to show the organized pipelines of the project issues:


Feel free to open an issue there if you wanna work on a specific feature (or discuss an existing issue there).

Check out this blog post by a coworker:


It describes a command line tool (cross-platform, so it will work from Linux, MacOS, or Windows) that pulls random projects that are receiving pull requests. The whole process is documented so if you wanted to tweak it to search for other types of projects (for example, Node.js instead of .NET) it should be straightforward. You could even get started by submitting a pull request to this tool that passes in a flag to choose technology stack, for example.


I'm Andrii, a tech community lead in cybersecurity startup that develops blockchain for passwordless authentication and more secure connections for IoT devices and data exchanges between applications. The basic technology of our project is distributed PKI.
We are searching contributors who want to plunge in blockchain development and interested in cryptography. Here it is JS library for our testnet, but we also have .NET and working on Java and Python. The core protocol wrote on Python. github.com/Remmeauth/remme-client-js


Firstly, I would like to thank the community for building and maintaining this great application 😍

I just started a chat based Meetup like web application for fun using React (and firebase for backend for now) and am looking for people who might interested in the project.

Details can be found in here:

Thank you!
