It has been a 3 years since I took part to the first season of the startup accelerator LeCamping in Paris. The application for the 6th season is starting this week. This creates a large network of “alumni” and a large number of startup created, between us, we call it the Camping Mafia.

Some months ago, we decided to build an alumni website. First goal was to create a summary listing of all the startups, inspired from YC list.

Romain Cochet had initiated a fully working Symfony based website. But I was thinking we could have a simpler solution that would encourage collaboration and not rely on a server-side database and hosting.

Based on the design work from Adrien Dupuy, I created a very simple AngularJS client-side application. This allowed us to easily add new features such as filtering and search.

The source code is available on GitHub and the website is entirely hosted on GitHub pages. Startups data is stored in a JSON file, which encourage edition and update from anyone through Pull Requests.
