WikiPerspective Hacks

Welcome to the Perspective Hacks gallery where we feature novel example code of how Perspective could be used by communities to improve online conversations. Check out some cool things people have built and please add your own with links to a demo and code to build upon. Hacks can be anything, from a working tool to the seeds of an idea that you want others to build upon.

Have an open source project that uses Perspective? Let us know!
