Put good karma in every commit.

Karma is a CLI-first dev gamification engine for teams that love good vibes and continuous improvement. Forever free for FOSS teams.


Why so serious? Try it, it's free and setup is blazing fast.


Radically developer-first.

Transform your software development lifecycle into an endless source of joy and learnings for each dev and the team as a whole.

A quest to beef up your dev game
Karma's gamification engine is inspired by the classics you love. Reddit and StackOverflow reputation systems. CS Monsterkills. Super Mario stars. And, let's admit it, Pokemon XP levels.
Work hard and play hard as a team
Karma rewards positive micro-interactions between peers and creates shared incentives. With everyone's karma at stake, better think twice before pushing dirty code and breaking the build.
Blazing fast, no context switching
Cheer your peers and track karma points right from the terminal - or just use PR reviews to give cheers. Karma happens where hard work happens, away from Slack and other distractions.

Plug and play, literally.

Collect data from the tools you love to feed the Karma engine in minutes.

Cheer devs you follow

๐Ÿ‘‹ Hi fellow devs,

I built Karma based on 2 pain points as a CTO: (1) losing time and energy to remind devs to stick to our processes and (2) longing for more positive micro-interactions in remote-first setups. Karma hopefully solves both issues with its cool CLI. Hope you like it too!
