What is the WIP website built on?

What is the tech stack on which WIP is made?

Forgot to add details: I'm not a coder, but really like the platform here. Is it just fully coded manually? Or is there some open source software that I can use as well? I've been toying around with Discourse, but this platform is way better. Thanks for any help.

@marckohlbrugge may correct me if I'm wrong, but the entire thing is built by hand based on Ruby as programming language and Rails as a framework. There might be some other technologies going on, but that's the main thing.

Ah gotcha... was hoping that wouldn't be the case :)

Why? Are you looking to use this kinda software for something else?

Yes, for building a community I think it's awesome.
