Free and Open Source Software

DelugeRPG heavily makes use of Free and Open Source Software. You can too. Checkout Wikipedia or OSalt to find FOSS alternatives to the commercial software you already use.

Here are some of the Open Source software we use to run the website: Ubuntu Linux, Varnish, HAProxy, NginX, PHP, Percona-Server, Memcached

For development, I've used gedit, Geany, Sublime Text and VSCodium text editors for writing code. GIMP was used for any image-editing. The maps currently being used were made with Tiled. Sprite variants are made with Phatch. We use Gitea for code hosting and version control.

We also use the following Libraries on our website: AmaranJS, Bootstrap, Chart.js, fixto, history.js, html5shiv, jquery, jquery-ui, jquery.scrollTo, jquery.confirm, jquery.timers, countdown, lightbox, Tablesorter, ie7js, selectivizr/ie-css3

Our Forums run on phpBB software.

If you've ever wanted to donate to this game, please donate to any of the above software instead. That will help those wonderful people maintain and provide the software free of cost, which in turn helps millions of sites like ours.
