We are almost ready to announce on the blog that we are open sourcing SEDE.
Before we do that I wanted to get a bit of feedback to make sure that what we are doing makes sense and is easy to follow.
Where is the code?
The code is located at: https://github.com/StackExchange/StackExchange.DataExplorer
What can I do to help?
I tried to expand on this in the readme.
What is the license?
We have chosen the very liberal MIT license; this means that you can take the code and use it in your own commercial project. Of course you must account for the trade dress side of things, so if you deploy an instance of SEDE we do not want it to look like it's a Stack site.
What kind of contributions are we hoping for?
Some areas that I think could use TLC:
- We could do a bit better with the awesome SlickGrid (things like sorting, better styling or cut-and-paste support and so on)
- Graphs would be awesome
- Bug fixes
- Stuff that makes SEDE better at teaching and learning
How do I contribute?
Easy! Fork this repository on GitHub; anyone can do that. Commit changes to your fork, preferably in easy-to-merge branches. Submit a pull request on GitHub with a description of your changes.
And now, for the question
What else do you think we need to do before we announce this on the blog?
