slim-overflow

slim-overflow is a web application which implements much (but not all) of the core functionality of Stack Overflow. It is written in Elixir and built on the Phoenix Framework.

Some of the features it supports:

  • User and Admin accounts (including auth, OAuth, email verification, etc.)
  • CRUD operations for questions, responses, nested comments, categories
  • User reputation as determined by upvotes, downvotes, response "promotions"
  • View metrics for profiles, questions, categories
  • Live chatrooms associated with each question, built using Phoenix Channels

Setup

  1. Install Elixir here and Phoenix, Node.js, and PostgreSQL here.

  2. Install dependencies with mix deps.get.

  3. Create and migrate the Postgres database with mix ecto.create && mix ecto.migrate.

  4. Install Node.js dependencies with cd assets && npm install

  5. Start Phoenix endpoint with mix phx.server

Now visit localhost:4000 and have at it!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
