Thus far I have made this site myself. If someone would like to help, I would love it.

Things you could do to help out:

I tag issues that would be good for outside contributors to work on with "help wanted" but you're welcome to work on anything!

The website is built in Python 3 with Flask and SQLAlchemy. The templates are HTML (plus Jinja, from Flask, for dynamics).

Setting up a development environment:

TLDR: Install mysql/python3. Clone repo and run Run init and load localhost:5000.

The build tools should work on Linux and Mac. If you're running Windows you'll want to use Cygwin or Windows 10's "Linux subsystem". If you want to use native Windows, email me at and I will give you some pointers.

Make sure you have myqsl, python3, and pip installed. On debian-based systems this would look like:

$ sudo apt-get install mysql-server python3 python3-dev python3-pip

But you can use whatever package manager is available to you. Make sure to note the password used when installing mysql.

Now set up tpassing:

$ git clone && cd transpassing
$ ./

Follow the instructions given; it should pretty comprehensively set up everything you need. In general you can answer y to everything.

Finally, you can start the debug server.

$ ./init

Then load up localhost:5000 in a browser.

In production, expired posts are deleted daily for security and space. It's not necessary in debug, but if you'd like to set that up you can run

Please email me if you have any questions:
