WIPUP is a website to show people what you're working on.
WIP updates can be anything - from a single sentence explaining the changes to an embedded video with file attachments and pastebin.
People can comment, kudos and subscribe to projects, and statistics are tracked via your personal dashboard.
Unlike other social websites, WIPUP focuses on a niche group of passionate people with long-term projects, and want to show what they've learned in the process rather than just the finished creation. WIPUP is for people who make stuff.
We believe that it's time to stop placing so much emphasis on the finished product and instead appreciate the beauty of the journey behind it.
For an example of WIPUP in use, the page you're looking at now is WIPUP's very own project page. You're currently reading the project description and below you can see all of the updates to the WIPUP project. Try clicking through some of them to see what an update could be like! (or try a random update if you're feeling adventurous!)
WIPUP is completely FREE to use, and will stay that way. Some of the awesome stuff which WIPUP offers is:
- Unlimited storage space for uploads.
- Rating system based on views, kudos, and comments.
- Anti-idiot filter. This is for people who are truly dedicated to their projects.
- Warm and fuzzy feelings.
- E-mail and newsfeed notifications for subscribed projects & tracked users.
- Statistics about project popularity and activity.
- Open-source and community driven.
- Multiple authors/contributors per project.
- Pastebin with diff support to compare revisions.
- Personal WIPSpace profiles to view projects and latest WIPS
- Easy-to-use API for developers- use WIPUP to organise your work, and create your own interface to showcase it!
Once you're convinced, sign up and share your ambitions.
