This branch is our under-development next-generation platform, not the one currently at hummingbird.me
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.
For ideas of things to do, see our GitHub issues — check out the issues tagged "easy" for a good starting place! We also use ZenHub to do more advanced progress tracking, so we recommend installing their browser addon.
Please don't use Github issues for feature requests, instead create a topic in the forum feedback category.
