Dribdat is an open source (MIT license) project board for splendid collaboration that we use to run this site. Here we collect and showcase all projects from an event in one place, under shared conditions. On the front page you can see the upcoming event, as well as any previous events. A short description is followed by a link to the event home page, as well as a countdown of time remaining until the start or finish (if already started) of the hackathon. On the event page you can learn about topics, datasets, and any other information the organisers have provided. Once you have formed a team, you can login and join or start a project.


When documenting an idea or project, you can use plain text or Markdown formatting to write up your Pitch. Instead of directly uploading an image, video, slideshow, etc., put a link on its own line to Imgur, YouTube, Speaker Deck, and many other sites supported for a preview. Click Edit on the next page to get started.

The Sync feature allows you to connect to your external content: GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, Etherpad, Google Docs (Publish to Web), Instructables and DokuWiki are supported. You will then find a Sync button on your project page for quickly pulling in changes.

Your team members can click the Join button at the top of your project page to link their profile and make changes. You can customise the background color, link to an image and source code, edit the pitch as explained above.

By updating your Progress using the Post button, you can communicate how far along you are in development.

For organisers

All of the content on the site, including presentation and the Quickstart above, can be edited by the site administrator in the Admin menu linked in the header if you have access: from where you can edit general details under Events, publish Categories, and edit or sync Projects and Challenges (which are either a Category, or just a project in challenge status).

If you would like to use this platform for your event, contact the organisers of the events listed here and they should be able to help you - or just fork the open source project and set it up to your liking:
