TL;DR: Driwwwle is an open-source social network to showcase your projects with like, comments, notifications, profiles and real-time chat.
As developers, we like to look out for new and exciting projects or products. However, finding them is not the easiest task out there. Sure, you can scroll through GitHub's trending section to find a lot of awesome products but what if it is closed source?
Things aren't so hard for designers though. They can visit a website like Dribbble or Behance and enjoy the thousands of creative designs easily. What if we had something like Dribbble, but for developers?
Driwwwle is a social network for developers to showcase their projects or products with other developers across the globe. Just like any other social network out there, you can like posts, save them privately, leave a comment and follow your favorite developers to build your own personal feed.
Some of the other features include:
⚡ Server-side rendering with Next.js
🍪 Cookie-based authorization with JSON web tokens
📜 Infinite scrolling feed with React Query
🖼️ Cloud image upload with Cloudinary
❤️ Like, save, and comment on posts
💬 Realtime chat with Socket.io
🤝 Follow developers and build personal feed
and a lot more..

Interesting idea and much props for building a site! However, there are a few things that should be pointed out.
First, looking at the site's github repo, the project source is publicly visible but it isn't open source. To be open source a project must have a permissible license, such as MIT, GPL, Apache, etc. Without a license, the project is proprietary and using the source is technically copyright infringement.
Hi Jay, these are some extremely valid points. Thanks for bringing them up. It must've slipped through my mind but I'll get started right away. Appreciate you taking your time for letting me know!
Hello @itsnitinr , looks awesome project!
Note: still waiting for the verification email :)
Hi there! Thanks for signing up. Could you please check your promotions tab if you're using Gmail? If you're using Yahoo, you might find the email in the 'Unread' folder. It would've probably ended up there :)
Let me know if you still haven't received it. I'll be happy to send you from my personal email.
Good job man , inspired me bro …🔥
I'm really glad to hear that
Thank you so much!
Great project! Well done :)
Are you planning a Product hunt launch?
Indeed, hopefully within the next 10 days. Just wanted to get some feedback prior to the ProductHunt launch.
Wow, great idea. I will join soon! How have you done the video ? It’s amazing!
Thank you! Excited for you to join :)
The video is made using Adobe After Effects and free template that you can find here: youtube.com/watch?v=GzTQFCHzgok
This is a great idea. I think this social network will be very popular, especially since it will provide an opportunity to demonstrate your projects. I also try to use the possibilities of social networks as much as possible. And I try to develop a personal brand with their help volgers-kopen.com/tiktok-likes-kopen/ And this source has become indispensable for me. This helps me to get more likes on tiktok and thereby attract more interest to my profile.
Awesome work, signed up! Good luck with the project I'm sure it will do great.
Thank you so much! I'm really glad you feel so. Hoping to see your posts too :)
Thank you so much for checking it out!
