Open Source Contribution


After some reading and coding samples i'm looking for a real ROR open-
source project to contribute.

Does anybody need help?

Hi Gilherme,

I'd like to improve story management of a Scrum app.
Take a look at:
Right now I'm developing new features but story creation, assignation
and repriorization is an app weak point.
If you like to collaborate contact me.


Sadly that u are use, because
at rails community, in the current realities, if project is no at, its likely dead.)

Ivan Nastyukhin

are you from github?

Dammit.... all my projects must be dead then :frowning:

There are a lot of open-source project need some help. I can say
someone :

Typo :
Redmine :
Shapado :
Oupsnow :

And a lot of. By example you can upgrade all of that project in Rails
3 Beta or help with some fix bug, report bug or add features.

Thank you Oliver and Cyril for the suggestions.

I will check it out and decide from where to start.

+1 for shapado, if you need help you can talk to us on #shapado in freenode
Thanks Cyril :wink:

I'm assuming you're asking for RoR projects, not just plugins or gem

I'm not active in these groups, but they're pretty friendly:


Other projects: as far as I know, no one is making an effort to port
Beast/AlteredBeast (RoR forum) to Rails 3, but I've been out of that
loop for a good while.

You may also want to look at Spree and RefineryCMS, though the latter
is put out by a design company. If you're looking for a high-profile
project to help you build a freelance portfolio, Spree may be your
best bet.
