Announcing Kunjika, a Free Software Stack Overflow clone

Kunjika is a modern question and answer forum application that aims to give users the same features available on Stack Overflow. It is the brain-child of Shiv Shankar Dayal, an Instrumentation Engineer and software programmer.

Kunjika is written in Python (using the Flask framework), with a Couchbase database, Memcached thrown in and a Jinja2-based templating system. Coding stated about a month, and the first alpha version (version 0.1) was released a few days ago. A demo website has been set up.

Though the base features are in place, there are lots of stuff yet to be implemented. So if you are familiar with the tools used to create it, and have the time and desire to contribute, you are more than welcome to jump right in.

The code is Free Software, released under the GNU General Public License.

The list of features that you may contribute code for is available here, but feel free to contribute code you deem to be useful, even if it is not listed there as a needed feature.

Like the software itself, there is an ongoing effort to provide detailed documentation covering every aspect of the project – from installation to administration. The initial effort is available here.
