first seven characters of computed  hash value on the project report
webpage and the user can copy the full hash value by clicking on
`clipboard` icon.

A website that showcases projects! If you want to use it and it's not exactly fitting your purpose, please do make upstream changes. We expect this project to be of use to others and we're happy to make it more generic so it's easier to adapt to other organizations. This was built by coala community, to view live projects visit projects.coala.io

(It'd be nice to have an organization YML or so e.g.)


This is designed for GSoC but can be used for other initiatives at the same time. We use it for research theses, GSoC, GCI and maybe others in the future.


  • It's way more appealing to students.
  • You can search and filter projects.
  • Project ideas as structured data are more concise and you're sure to have all points covered - at the same time we can show students an overview and showing the full information only when needed.
  • A proper review process can be used for triaging and iterating on project ideas.
  • Stop wasting time maintaining a mentors list. This can be generated from the projects.

Multi Language Support

coala Projects supports multiple 'human languages'. To add a translation of a project in a language, the following steps can be followed:

  • Create a folder with language code in data/locale folder.
  • Create faq.json, projects.json, faq and projects folder if they do not exist already.
  • Add translated content of a project inside projects folder. The names of the file should be same.
  • Similiarly translated content of a faq goes inside data/locale/ < language-id > /faq folder.
  • For the faq.json and projects.json metadata, refer to Bahasa and Hindi Translations available in data/locale directory.
  • Lastly, in resources/js/app.js file, Add the new language json in Language service.
