At PyCon this year, SourceForge announced the open source release of Allura. Allura is an open source implementation of a software “forge”, a web site that manages source code repositories, bug reports, discussions, mailing lists, wiki pages, blogs and more for any number of individual projects. Developed for the community, Allura is powered by MongoDB.
For our April developer blog contest, we'd like to learn more about other open source projects using MongoDB. In addition to Allura, we have heard about content management systems like c5t, logging apps like Graylog2, and analytics tools like Hummingbird. But we know there are more great open source projects out there leveraging MongoDB.
What's your favorite open source project powered by MongoDB? Tell us about it in this month's contest. Write a detailed blog post about the application and why MongoDB is a good fit for the backend. You are welcome to talk about a project that you developed yourself, or about an open source tool that you use and love. The winner will be selected by the engineering teams at 10gen and SourceForge, so write your entry for a technical audience. The submissions will be judged based on technical interest, community impact, and MongoDB's contribution.
Note: The tool must use MongoDB rather than being for MongoDB.
Once complete, submit a link to your blog post in the comments section of this post by the end of the month. You must also tweet your blog post with the hashtag #MongoDevBlog to be eligible; you can follow the hashtag for entries and discussion about the contest.
We'll announce the winner in early May. The winner will receive the cool prizes listed below. Everyone who enters will receive a MongoDB coffee mug.
