Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!

@zkat Hi, I'm one of the developers of @bonfire a federated extensible framework also written in Elixir. Have you considered how federation could play a role in your project?


@mayel @bonfire I'm not opposed to federating it, but federation would not benefit the most core features that I'm currently working on, imo. I think there's some interesting opportunities when it comes to discovery/art sharing, though.

@zkat @bonfire
Yeah that's the kind of stuff I was thinking about (as well as roaming identity). Have prototyped some topic/taxonomy based federated search and discovery...
