Announcing Built with Elm - the official fork

Built with Elm is a generous project that was started by Luke Westby, in early December 2015 (first commit), with the intention to showcase the awesome work of the Elm community. He wanted to create a place for people to have their work recognized and for their work to stand as examples for those who are new to the language.

A few days ago I was given ownership of the project and so I wanted to let everyone know that:

  1. Built with Elm will continue to be actively developed and maintained.
  2. The goals of the project remain the same, i.e.
  • To showcase the awesome work of the Elm community.
  • To create a place for people to have their work recognized.
  • To have the works stand as examples for newcomers to the language.

When you fork a project all the stars remain with the original project. GitHub stars, though superficial on many levels, send an undeniably strong signal to people that a project is worth their time and attention. Unfortunately my fork hasn’t got any stars. If you value this project and would love to support the work I’m doing then please star the GitHub page.

If something is wrong with the site, please let me know as soon as possible by submitting a bug report.

Thanks

Evan personally reached out to me when I started showing interest in the project and he suggested a plan for me to follow to get my technical changes accepted. He then coordinated with Luke to help me get the domain.

Luke entrusted me with the project and I’m immensely grateful for his kindness.

Thank you @evancz and @luke.
