Create Your Own Chat Robot with Hubot

Posted · Category: Chat, MIT License

Hubot is a chat bot, modeled after GitHub’s Campfire bot, hubot. He’s pretty cool. He’s extendable with community scripts and your own custom scripts, and can work on many different chat services. GitHub, Inc., wrote the first version of Hubot to automate our company chat room. Hubot knew how to deploy the site, automate a lot of tasks, and be a source of fun in the company. Eventually he grew to become a formidable force in GitHub.

Today’s version of Hubot is open source, written in CoffeeScript on Node.js, and easily deployed on platforms like Heroku. More importantly, Hubot is a standardized way to share scripts between everyone’s robots.

100% Open Source, Next Gen Discussion Platform

Posted · Category: Chat, GPL License

Discourse is the 100% open source, next-generation discussion platform. You should consider using Discourse when you need a mailing list, a forum to discuss something, and a chat room where you can type paragraphs.

Discourse is a from-scratch reboot, an attempt to reimagine what a modern, sustainable, fully open-source Internet discussion platform should be today. They tried to build the community that has a natural immune system to defend itself from trolls, bad actors, and spammers. There’s also a trust system, so engaged community members can assist in the governance of their community.

The act of participating in a discussion should fundamentally feel good in a way that it currently does not on all existing forums and mailing lists. It should be fun to have discussions with other human beings, not a chore, or something that’s barely tolerable.
