It seems like this project has died.  =(

Is ChicagoBoss being actively maintained or is everyone using Elixir and Phoenix?

Regards,
Ray Long

Hi,
It's not dead, but community is too small to push active development and future community growth.
I keep it on sync with erlang releases, but some important features like moving to rebar3 are stuck in the middle and not released beyond my development machine.
I use it on some projects with 300k monthly visitors, so CB is still work for those, willing to dig into code.

Hi,

I've used ChicagoBoss in several projects and it is a good piece of software but still give me the feeling "this is not finished". Something important like tests are not working for sessions, for example, and BossDB has a lot of limitations.

As I said, ChicagoBoss is a great piece of software, but still needs more work to be prepared to all of the developers out there.

Regards.
Manuel Rubio.

HI,

I have a fairly major site running in production (very low usage rate but high in functionality). Everything I need works great, but I am feeling a little lonely. There is not nearly as much discussion going on as when I started it 5-6 years ago.

Is anyone working on OTP20? I accidentally upgraded on my dev machine and I dont really want to fall back. (I do not have a whole load of spare time right now, but I am happy to help if I can be useful.)

I hope its not dead and still have someone answering questions.

I still using CB for my backend REST service and like it.

but only for basic usage, not advanced use.

I like the erlang style.

Hi,

I am using CB on my website which has nearly 120 visitors per day and working with websocket.
Now developing a new online three js game (fps) with CB as backend. I am still using older version on my production server.
I must say that i love CB and would be great if it is still active again like 2-3 years ago.
