Hummingbird is now Open Source

What is Hummingbird?

Hummingbird is a modern anime discovery platform that helps you track the anime you're watching, discover new anime and socialize with other fans.


The backend is a JSON API server built with Rails, Postgres, ElasticSearch, and Redis. The frontend is a client-side application written using Ember.

To get started, clone this repository, install Docker (via Docker for Mac/Windows or Docker-Machine if you're not on Linux) and run bin/setup && bin/start to get a development version running. Before you start working be sure to read the contribution guide.

To get data into your development server, download our media database dump and use gzcat anime.sql.gz | bin/psql hummingbird_development.
