FOSS United Platform (FUP)

As the activites of FOSS United get more complex and scaled - specially events and chapters, we need a better way of managing the workflows. @WishArya @mriya11 discussed this with volunteers @NagariaHussain, Harsh, @mangeshrex1 on how we can get this done.

Currently is just a “configuration” on top of Frappe Framework and we keep on adding “features” on an ad hoc basis. This works for rapid prototyping but when the system gets sophisticated, it becomes hard to maintain and also for people to contribute / re-use some of the code.

All the new development will now be moved to an app GitHub - fossunited/platform: Platform and new modules will be built there.


  1. Make an app/repository of the code
  2. Start with Chapters and Volunteers module
  3. Move Conferences from fossunited/indiafoss to a module
  4. Create Hackathon module from customisation.
  5. Module owners
    1. Chapters - Harsh
    2. Volunteers - Mangesh
    3. Hackathon - Riya
