Anyone needing help in open source projects?

Hello, I'm a front-end developer looking for an open source project to help, specially the small ones. I work mainly with javascript, but could open to other languages. Is there anyone needing help?

Hi Willane, I'm actually looking for some frontend help on my OSS project, Express Admin Area. In short, the project is a database management tool from the browser.

The front uses TypeScript React while the back is using Typescript Express. At the moment there is absolutely zero styling on the front so if you're into CSS, or perhaps some other form of styling library, and want to help refactor some components, write unit tests as well as add some new features then be my guest and submit a PR. Once merged I'll add you to the Contributors list on the README.

I don't have a good flow set up for contributors so excuse me if it's difficult to get into. I could definitely use help setting up a

I'm also open for backend help if that interests you or anyone who reads this.

Hope to see some of yall pop up in the PR or Issues 😁

I'm not a part of this project but i think this is a good one.

An accessible and customisable Twitter client


An acessible and customizable Twitter client.

Build Status


First things first: you must install all dependencies.

npm install
npm start


npm run test:unit
npm run test:integration


This command will generate a Pardal executable for Linux, MacOS and Windows.

npm build

If you're developing on Linux or MacOS, you will need to install Wine to generate versions for Windows.

I am needing help with the front-end.

It is about the AsmBB project. The back-end is really superior (yes, I am very modest) but almost everyone visiting the site claims the design and the front-end as a whole is really bad.

The project needs good, contemporary theme and definitely some serious JS revision. But in the same time, it is very important to not ruin the performance. After all, AsmBB pretend to be the fastest and lightest web forum engine in the world.

So, HTML (the project has a template engine, so changes are easy), CSS/LESS and vanilla JS seems to be the proper recipe. Well, maybe webassembly as well, if it will increase the performance.

Of course, I can provide a back-end changes if needed.

P.S. Ah, yes, the project is distributed under a copy-left license EUPL. It is very similar and compatible to GPL, but with EU specifics.

The code is in source code repository.

The version control system used is fossil scm. It is similar to git, but much better for small projects.

So, at the very beginning you should use this workflow and when you are more familiar with fossil I will give you commit permissions to work directly on the central repository.

P.S. BTW, fossil scm is written by the author of SQLite D.Richard Hipp. He is brilliant programmer and particularly fossil is really a masterpiece software.
