Hi, I’m Eric.
Thank you for your interest in this project.
I’m building Xgit because I want to explore the concept of social data. This is much like GitHub’s notion of social coding, but I think it can apply far more broadly than coding in particular.
I think git is an interesting foundation for a social data platform. There are great libraries for mobile and desktop platforms (libgit2 and jgit), and – while Java can be used for server products – I’ve been building server software in Elixir for the last few years and I personally prefer it to the Java world.
