Context

So meetup.com maybe planning to charge a $2 per RSVP - this will effectively kill any "free meetup". So as a meetup co-organizer myself, this is me researching for a plan to mitigate this!


Open Source Solutions (with demo)

The following are either outright meetup clones, or are "close enough" drop in replacement A similar list in table format (by "coderbyheart") can be found here

Get Together

GIT - DEMO

  • groups: yes, with search (it is a meetup clone)
  • event search: yes, with locations, and more (its a meetup clone)
  • federation: basic import from live sites, using a CLI command (on a cron schedule?)

Most feature complete, one-to-one with meetup.com, as it was part of its original design goals.

More importantly its the only project to recognize the need for federation of events.
