Hiring: NodeBB plugin developer



  • Hi guys,
    I'm looking to hire someone who can create a few NodeBB plugins for myself.
    We are looking for ~5 plugins, however they could all be put into 1 plugin if that makes it easier. We are paying for these projects, and a price can be negotiated when you contact us. We are looking to get these plugins done in the next few weeks, so if you are busy please do not contact us 🙂
    We are able to provide a development machine if required by yourself.
    If you are still interested, you can email me at contact [at] jamesj [dot] me with the title 'NodeBB Development Position' and I will read all applications. If I don't get back to you, I'm afraid we've found someone else.

    TL;DR: If you're free over the next few weeks, want to make some plugins and make some money, email us. Thanks.

    Thanks,

    • James

    Lead Developer & Project Lead at DatPixel Entertainment.

    P.S: If this isn't allowed, my apologies I couldn't see any rules stating this wasn't allowed.

    @JamesJ, definitely allowed and actively encouraged 😄

    We're interested, will send you an email shortly.



  • @julian awesome!
    It would be a great pleasure to work with the actual creators of the software 😄



  • @JamesJ Do you plan for your plugins to be opensource?

    No sorry. We'll be asking any developers to sign an NDA (Non-disclosure agreement) as we're wanting these plugins to remain private and unique. Sorry if this puts anyone off the job.

    Lol. Sorry.
    Most of the plugins would only really suit us, due to the nature of the plugins.

    Yeah, makes sense. 👍

    @JamesJ except for one of them... which would be really neat in core 😉



  • @julian @JamesJ I'd urge you to consider the one Julian would like in core to be made open source. I wanted a better editor and as an individual bought a $500 OEM licence for the best one and donated it to the project so it could become part of core and improve NodeBB for everyone. I could have bought the cheaper licence and put the plugin into my own code alone, but that kind of flies in the face of open source, especially when the underlying tech that makes this whole forum work is free as air. I'll not push further, I just wanted to say it's maybe worth considering.

    Don't worry, already working on something 😉

    I'm currently working on and NDA which will exclude the plugin @julian is talking about.
    For a little bit of information, it's just general edit, such as adding temporary bans, reasons for all bans, reasons & notifications for when you delete posts / topics and reasons for Flagging posts for Moderation.

    That kind of plugins could fit any project

    The other plugins wont. Especially the two main plugins. Which we will not be releasing.

    @JamesJ I'm kinda against the closed source culture. especially for plugins that are actually for a forum software that are open source. Hell, I don't mind paying for the plugins. But having them closed for one person seems like a disadvantage for everyone else who might have the game idea but not the funds to back it up.



  • @Kowlin the fact is, the majority of our plugins add nothing to the actual forums. They're more targeted towards our game server, things that aren't designed for a forum.
    However, we're using NodeBB to hook onto, so we're just adding pages.
    I'm sorry, but we wont be releasing the majority of our projects open-sourced, due to the fact that they're branded towards our server -- not a forum.



  • Hi guys,
    I had a shocking amount of e-mails, which was pleasing actually.
    At time time, we have found someone who will be working with us to get the plugins completed.

    Thank you to all those who contacted me!

    That's fantastic to hear! Best of luck to the developer who won the bid (hint: it wasn't us 😄 )
