It seems that Kickstarter calls Open Source "Open Software".

How can I follow only these Open Software projects? I don't wish to invest in anything Closed Source.

  • What do you mean by "follow"? How do you want to follow it? Please explain. – user 99572 is fine Feb 11 '13 at 21:48
  • I means something like RSS feed or mail notifications. I wish to get updates when new Open Source projects start a Kickstarter action – Ivanov Feb 12 '13 at 8:32

You can track all new "Open Software" projects here:


There's no RSS option but you could can get the results emailed Daily or Weekly. Although if you want them Weekly I suggest using this list instead (since it shows all new projects over 7 days instead of 4 days in the browse list)


Hope that helps


You can now subscribe to an RSS feed of all the results


You can track open source projects by visiting the open source tag: http://www.kickstarter.com/discover/tags/open-source?ref=sidebar#p1

However, tracking via RSS does not work, at least not in Google Reader. There are RSS feed only for all projects or individual projects (see this link: http://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq/backer%20questions#ProfSett):

RSS feeds for Kickstarter

The notification settings in your account don't allow any specific tracking either:

You may be able to set up tracking changes with a software like Website Watcher. You can test in a 30-day trial if it works for you.

Apart from that, either wait & see or send a suggestion to the Kickstarter team.
