Is That Even a Thing?

Have you ever wondered if that thing you just heard is even a thing? Now you can find out! (Well actually, soon you can find out.) There's a new website coming soon called "even a thing".

The Premise...

The site will contain a knowledgebase of "things" which either are or are not "even a thing". My current intent is for it to have a media-agnostic opinion of things -- that means it won't pull data from other sites. Instead, users will be able to vote on whether a thing is a thing, or not!

Check it out!

The beta site is here:

  • The beta will be updated as new features are released.

  • No current system is in place for nightly builds, but I might try to implement one.

If you want to check out the codebase, view the repository on GitHub:

The tools...

This project is being built using nodejs, with mithril as an MVC framework, and expressjs (not Express). I'm using browserify to require packages from within regular javascript files.
