For me, contributing on Stack Overflow was a big step out of my comfort zone. There are already so many questions answered and so many experts there, that is not easy to find questions to answer. Anyways, I managed to make my contributions and got used to the flow of the site.
However, the activity is pretty constant, and it is easy to get lost in the number of questions that you can’t answer, be it for lack of knowledge, time, energy or question quality. For this reason, I thought it would be cool to automate the process of searching and filtering questions, based on my previous answers. So that is what Answerable is: a recommendation system on unanswered questions on Stack Overflow.
How it works
Answerable makes use of the StackExchange API and StackOverflow RSS feeds to gather your answers on the site and use them to sort the new questions by similarity with the ones you've already answered.
Optionally, it needs you to download certain information from your profile that can't be respectfully scraped, to improve the filtering of the feed.
You can find all the relevant information in the README and the wiki of the repository, along with the contributing guidelines.
