The development of Openwhyd started in 2012, as the most successful pivot of a topic-based social network (or forum, as some would say) created by the Whyd startup company.
Formerly hosted at whyd.com, the platform became open-source (and took the name of Openwhyd) during summer of 2016. Now that the platform is detached from the company that gave birth to it, it’s become completely independent: maintained by volunteers, and hosting fees are paid by donators.
We switched from our elasticsearch-based search to Algolia in 2014, and never looked back!
Please share your Openwhyd profile URL here if you have one! (mine is openwhyd.org/adrien)
And don’t hesitate to ask, if you have any question!
Thank you, Algolia!
