@BenjaminSmith0Worked on a GitHub Action to update my profile readme from data in Contentful, layout is a bit weird right now
@ella7+today i ran out of storage in the middle of working on a project, so i couldn't save any changes/ push to GitHub. Then my computer froze when I was trying to upload a screenshot to scrapbook (priorities lol) and so I had to restart it, losing all the work I couldn't save 💀 and on top of that I had to sacrifice the slack desktop app to clear up some storage. Here's a screenshot of what it looked like before everything died :flug:
@jasonaa0This year I decided that I want to make a commit once every day ~to make my github look cool~ to develop my skills, so yesterday I started writing a script that would send me a text using Twilio if I haven't committed anything to GitHub on that day. It's kind of wacky since afaik i can only get my recent pushes, so if a given day has a push event, I assume there was a commit on that day too. This approach kinda works but there's always the possibility that a push can have commits that weren't made on that day, but I can't get the date of a commit. Or maybe I can and I just need to make more API requests. At this point it might be more efficient to use GitHub's GraphQL API so I can query for the exact data I need. here's the source if anyone's curious: jasonaa.me/g/api/tree/main/api/streaks/index.js
@christina6950Not a bad first year on GitHub.... this morning I practiced adding a password field to one of my websites
@ella7+hopping on the bandwagon with a very sad GitHub contribution graph 😅 I joined Hack Club in October, but didn’t become active on the Slack until December. Hope to do more cool things in 2021!
@kayley0Currently rewriting the readme for my OASES repository with a new Markdown editor. For the past couple of months, I have been updating readmes and licenses for my repositories and I'm happy with how they are turning out.
@sampoder7+This Christmas I got a Jedi Challenges AR Headset from Santa (thanks Santa!). I really like the game, but I wanted to be able to put custom applications on to it!
So I made Holocron :jediparrot: which is a React component that makes doing so super duper easy. It helps you size the window correctly and position the screen etc. It was my first time making a React component and I found the publishing quite difficult but I worked it out well: www.npmjs.com/package/@sampoder/holocron
I then built a demo app that shows the status of your Vercel deployments on your headset. It uses SWR and react-reveal to make it feel buttery smooth!
I also built one that implements the Slack events component on the Hack Club Website (here) on to it (sadly I ran out of time to put this in the demo vid but there are pics attached!
Here's the GitHub project for the package: github.com/sampoder/holocron.
And here's the demo video which I submitted to MLH's weekly hackathon...... and guess what?? Somehow, I won Best Overall Hardware Hack so I now get a free kit from ironically DigiKey (you still owe me money, no escaping) but my react component won best hardware hack lol!
@Jeffrey0I made the pull request! Once I get home I need to record the test meeting. Otherwise everything is ready!
@sampoder7+Tried out coding on my iPad! Was very cool! I built a little microservice to make a print from a github markdown file: printhub.now.sh, it’s so i can markup new workshop bounty submissions in review, which i built a siri shortcut for
@bellesee12121trying to navigate the hack club github ( see what it's about )...
@sampoder7+built a fun game! it’s called dance-x-factor:dancing-dino:
you scan the qr code (this is intended for tv screens around my school), it then starts the dancing, a tensorflow.js model (made using teachable) will then monitor your performance, then the x-factor judges (or what ever you call it i feel like there are 10 of the same shows) will give you the golden buzzer or the big red buzzer based on what the model felt
it’s not at all accurate but it’s fun!
try: dance1.innovweek.co (note: this is designed to only be used by one client so if multiple people use it 💥 )
this was a fun thing to make, tho it contained me dancing in a public library very quietly to train an ml model… have fun!! and ignore my 1am dancing
@rishi0Yellow hellow everyone! It’s the first day of winter break, and now that all my school stuff’s finished (having handed in what might, in hindsight, have been one of the worst essays of my life), I’ve found myself quite pretty bored!
I’m going to be challenging myself to build one cool thing every day (and maybe ship it either here or in #rishi if it’s smaller), so here’s the first one!
I’ve found myself working with asynchronous hooks in React a lot; whether that be to fetch data or just do timed stuff client-side, the normal integrations just don’t really cut it for me. That’s why I built my own library for those kinds of hooks! @rishiosaur/async is built in Typescript, and has some awesome documentation as a result (Typedoc really comin thru), and has two hooks that I use a lot in my daily React life: usePromiseEffect and useAsyncEffect, both of which are modelled to look like idiomatic React (I’ve attached an example of their usage down below).
:githubparrot: You can find the Github repo over at z.rishi.cx/g/async (feel free to star!),
:npm: The NPM package over at www.npmjs.com/package/@rishiosaur/async,
🏗️ And the documentation over at async.rishi.cx!
@safin.singh0Rewrote my GPT parser thingy implementation! I got rid of a bunch of useless dependencies that I could manually implement and it now contains zero unsafe code! The table-generating code has been rewritten to be way simpler and requires less allocations and stuff. I've also included comments in a bunch of places in case y'all are curious what certain lines do. Code is on GitHub and you can install it (assuming you have cargo) with cargo install gptinfo!
@horas0Well, i make a project and it need a storage. Vercel doesn't have one, and i can't access aws because my github pack request haven't granted yet. So, i found out IBM Cloud offer the free one, and i try to learn to use it now. After dive their s3 docs in a hour, my back hurts 😢 . Well, my laptop is offline and here's the photo of IBM cloud logos on google image
@lola0Day 6 - Worked on some Google SEO for my website! SEO still confuses me slightly, since my page shows up as the first result on Edge but all the way on the third page of Google results. The whole concept is very new to me, so I'm learning through trial and error.
I also finally got around to making a final commit of my completed (as of now) site - github.com/dubiels/personal-website:github:
My website is at www.karolina.mgdubiel.com - let me know if you have any suggestions for it! I'm hosting subdomains on it as well so that I can practice some other HTML concepts without wrecking the main page.
