Any resources on badges implementation?


(Zarmakuizz) #1

Hi everyone :smile:

I am currently a student in an internship, inside a startup, and I am on a task of implementing a badge system on our app. This is my first take on badges, so I am looking for inspirating examples.

I already looked at Discourse as an example for the design part (I used Discourse on another community), so I though about looking at Discourse again for the coding part. How it was implemented. That’s when I read somewhere on the Design thread that the badge system would have needed 6-8 weeks to implement? While it seemed to my colleagues and me that it could be done in a shorter time. So I think we might be missing something.

I don’t know how long it was in the end, however I am curious about the architecture behind. To make reading the code easier, I am looking for draft documents, blog posts, or anything about the development specification of the badges on Discourse, in case this resource exists?

Thank you for your attention ^^

That topic and the implementation and the various badge discussions are all you have to go by, there is no “badge architecture” blog post and so on.

Thank you for your answer. I will look through the code and the forum as you said.
