Flurfunk, a simple Twitter-like service for small teams, is now open source.
We created Flurfunk because we wanted an internal timeline where we could:
- post interesting links
- have small discussions
- see commits, monitoring messages and build-reports all in one place
Many teams use IRC for this kind of internal communication, but Flurfunk has a few advantages:
- easy to set up
- a clean web interface
- a REST API
- channels (not the same as IRC-channels)
We are open sourcing it because we think it might be useful for other teams.
There is a server, a web client and a very flexible bot based on Apache Camel. We are also working on a Mac client, which will be released as soon as it’s „good enough“.
Check out the demo (web, mobile), and if you like what you see, set up your own instance.
