    Phoneix - Elixir

    We're a live message tool and it is basically what Elixir is built for

    The Elixir community has been great and incredibly friendly. I originally was worried about the size of the community but that hasn't been an issue the community has been super helpful. I also think the annual stackoverflow usage surveys are very misleading because most of the community's questions get asked in ElixirForum and not on Stackoverflow.

    Phoneix is the web framework of Elixir which is very similar to Rails but minus a lot of the magic has been very helpful for our productivity as well.

    If I had to built another service that is websocket heavy I would definitely use Elixir. Even if it was a standard crud app I would still most likely choose Elixir.

    Interestingly, the features page goes straight to github. With a list of features... followed by screenshots. So I found it! | 2021-03-20
    Yeah I agree, we're planning on updating the landing page to include a lot more screenshots/videos/demos :)

    In the meantime, here are some screenshots from our GitHub wiki:

    Thanks for building this! Love this version I think this would work great for making and fixing bugs. I think automated tests and chores as a category would actually be great to add to this.

    For our open source project ( We participated in hacktoberfest recently and one problem we ran into is people submitting low quality PRs. Which ends up taking up way more time to review than to merge.

    I would love to be able to filter by users who have merged multiple issues or some sort of quality bar for our bounties. Obviously since you are just starting out your users won't have too many issues merged. You might be able to work around this by finding the number of Github issues an author have merged previously to any projects that is greater than x number of stars. This way you might be able to bootstrap some credibility of the authors. Then maybe a contributor can gate on only allowing some reputable contributors.

    One inspiration I would recommend is taking a look at how 99designs has different tiers of designers you can have a bounty for your design. If you could build 99design for open project that would be amazing. Best of Luck!
