I’m the creator of Parlez-Vous, an Elm-based and privacy-oriented alternative to Disqus.
Here’s the demo of it in action.
Here are the repos to the project: parlez-vous · GitHub
- There’s the embed itself (which is the product that a website visitor would see in order to comment on a web page)
- The API server written with TypeScript in a functional style (underlying db is postgres)
- The admin dashboard, which is what a website owner would use in order to moderate contents
- Marketing webpage
- And a roadmap repo which I never got around to fully implementing
Unfortunately, I’ve come to realize that the timing is not right for me to continue working on this project. This makes me quite sad because I have been wanting to build another great product to promote Elm and to keep the code open source forever. The other benefit is that it could have generated passive income for me if I had continued working on it.
That being said, I don’t want this project to just die and not see the light of day.
I’d love for someone who is entrepreneurial and knows Elm well enough to “take the batton” (appropriate analogy considering it’s Olympics time haha). I’d be happy to help onboard someone if they’d like. But I am only looking for folks that are serious about this. I don’t want someone to take this on and then end up not working on it after a few months.
