Project Description

Project Description:

We need development and installation the open source crowd funding platform Catarse. We will provide all design with some slight differences, and right now we do not need for any payment gateway. I am proposing to uses Ruby on Rails and PostgreSQL for the database.

The software itself is ready to go and runs the popular catarse website but we would like some small changes to get to what we consider stage 1. Once customised, we need the system setup live with configuration. The website will be installed on an Bluehost hosting environment. But testing should be done on your own staging server before it can be transferred to our machines. There will be further customisations and would like your standard hourly rate for this and support.
