I hope nobody minds me asking for help in this way.
I'm asking for help from programmers to help set up a unique open-source project that could benefit a great many people.
The Tagmata Project's three aims are :
(1) to create a completely open-source website (2) to use the site to generate money (3) to use the profits to help alleviate poverty
Full details of the whole project can be found at http://www.tagmata.info.
The platform for the open-source website has not yet been built, and that is what I'm asking for help with.
There are two things in particular that seem most relevant to Nginx developers / users :
(1) Nginx - MongoDB module
The Tagmata database will use MongoDB, with an Nginx front-end. We're looking to develop an Nginx module that connects to MongoDB, to allow queries through Nginx to MongoDB (in a similar vein to the recent ngx_drizzle, ngx_postgres etc modules that have been developed recently by Agentzh, Piotr Sikora et al.). This might be able to reuse some code from the ngx_gridfs module, but I'm not sure how stable it is.
Another part of this module will be translating our own database query language (Tagmata Query Language) to MongoDB queries - which should be pretty easy, as the syntax is very similar.
The code for this will be hosted on GitHub, and will be designed in such a way that it will be reusable for other projects that wish to connect to MongoDB that don't want to use Tagmata Query Language.
Once this particular module is written and stable, I'll post here to let Nginx users know.
(2) Online development tools
The code for these will be made available on the open-source website (tagmata.com) when the base platform has been developed.
I can do all of this code myself, but I'm hoping that some generous programmers would be willing to help out to make the task easier. Some other programmers have volunteered to do some of the other tasks that need doing, but we could do with some more help to speed up the development process.
If you'd like to know more about the project, please visit http://www.tagmata.info. If you'd like to know more about the programming tasks, please visit http://www.tagmata.info/development/programming. If you'd like to get involved, please contact me by email (email@example.com) or IRC (Freenode #tagmata).
Thanks in advance,
