@heyrajan0:assemble: ASSEMBLE SHIP :shipitparrot:
The internet is a scary place — why don’t we keep it that way? Blind Spot (BS) is a model that ONLY allows you to view fake news on the internet. On a google search, it removes all reliable sources and only shows the most extreme results. On a page itself, it is glorified & prioritized if it is fake news, and if it’s a real source, it all becomes ZACHARY LATTA THE FOURTH OUR SAVIOR :zrl: In the video, you’ll see a bunch of searches just disappear, leaving only fake news 🪄
It was super fun to push my limits with a timed 90 minute hack, and where I had my first interaction with Docker and GPT2. So happy to meet all of you, had an amazing time 💖 Huge shoutout to the entire Assemble team :blob_comfy:
As always, open sourced at github.com/rajanwastaken/blind-spot
@rishi1Yesterday, I ran my very first IRL hack night at our house in SF! We had a couple dozen people drop by throughout the evening and make everything from ai research to a perfect word generator w/ gpt-3 (and people were coming until about 2 in the morning! new first for me in hackathon organizing)
We started off at the house, then went over to Noisebridge (a ridiculously cool anarchist hackerspace about 2 blocks away from us) and made some music and synth visualizers :) all of us ended up coding until the wee hours in the morning, and we had some pretty sweet people show up—Jacky, Pranav, Ben and the cofounders of DeepAI!
still trying to get over my sleep deprivation but I couldn't be happier with how it turned out <3
@HenryBass-U02KEJ8T6D87I have almost returned! (As of writing this I'm in the back seat of someone else's car driving to the airport in Florida)
My parents got bored of me, so they shipped me off to a 7 day scuba diving trip in the Florida keys with everyone's favorite (all American 🇺🇸) child molesting organization!
Accidentally touched grass, got vomited on a second time on a boat, discovered how much you can price gouge popcorn if you don't let consumers escape the camp (10 fucking dollars for a bag of popcorn), and managed to do 11 dives in the week (I never want to see water again)
I'll be back in Vermont in about 7 hours where I can return to the usual schedule of hiding in my room on my computer avoiding social responsibility
Since I was tragically not eaten by a shark, it seems like I'll be back to making stuff here. I'll try to get a small ship out soon
@zrl0Getting Hack Cube creation down to a science while I've been sick and stuck at home. Making tons of them! DM me with your address if you want one and @hugo.y.hu935 or myself will ship one to you!
@linus0:lefthand:New Ship Time:righthand:
Our world is full of nasty things. Obviously, I’m talking about Keyloggers. From stealing your special numbers and oh so special search terms to making popping and mooing sounds while you type, the world is a very scary place :eye_real:.

@karolina0Have you ever sat and thought, "Hmm, I wonder how cold and depressing it is in Seattle right now? How much better off am I?"
Introducing... Seattle-ometer! Now, you can compare yourself to Seatteites to your heart's content! Just type in a valid US ZIP code and press submit.
Brought to you by a rainy day in Seattle with nothing better to do :)
@ian7+Ever wanted to add easter eggs to your GitHub profile, or leave a fancy message for anyone inspecting your contribution graph? You can now with GitWrite! Over the past few days I wrote GitWrite with inspiration from @aiden.bai05’s GitHub profile and how he spoofed dates for commits.
It’s pretty easy to use, you just have to make sure you do it in the right repository, otherwise it’ll be a lot more git commands to undo :eggsdee:.
Try it out!
@linus0Last night I hacked this together at @pranav’s hackwa hackathon in about 40 minutes: CharlieQuotes! It features python and rate limiting of the slack api and quotes and html in long python strings! (Shoutout to pranav for making such a fun event!). Source code is attached :charliepog:@sampoder4🚢 Last week, my Hack Club ran ⚡Maker Week⚡. Which put simply was Hack Club for an entire week! We had a Discovery Zone on Monday morning (a series of generative art / visual displays), then every lunchtime we ran a workshop (such as the Kahoot & Kaboom workshops as well as a special science workshop) and to wrap it all up we had an evening hackathon called Maker Night. It was a ton of fun and hopefully we attracted some awesome new Hack Club members!
@pybash0just shipped rrpm in #ship feeling good. here is a random code snippet form the codebase
@av7+Today was a good day! Well, it was alright to be frank.
I got lots to share, so let's begin!
I had some school stuff, which went decent. 1 test that I think I did good on, and somethign I don't think i ddi that well on. I got good progress on an assignment for another class to, so that's :yay:
I took a new book out from the libary: Children of Blood and Bones. Couple pages in, my thoughts? 📖 It is a beatifually written book, and I cannot wait to read it more. Reviews are also good!
I did some programming today 🧑💻 after a while (kind-of)
I found this tutorital on for loops and data for :python: Python. I did most of it, and it's actually really intresting. I lik what you can do with for loops, I plan on finiishing this later this week. I'll ship it here, with my own data and ideas ( i got a few after I look another article on what I can do with this)
You can check it out here; www.dataquest.io/blog/python-for-loop-tutorial
@tetraoxygen0Hey folks! There’s a new member of the Portland family — Portland Text! It’s designed to be more legible than the display variant, which has been renamed to Portland Display. We hope you like it, and you can go get the updated Portland at allotro.pe/portland now!
@rithul0ok I managed to get back on my PC, Studying the remark right now, so I can make my own Markdown Parser, I’ll post updates on how its going here and #ship it once its done!
@neel.redkar0i would love to ship this video i made at isef which received a standing ovation@ArcadeWise6Today I have a stupid ship. Voilá FizzBuzz, my favorite problem, in gForth! Forth is one of my favorite languages, as it’s stack based and I love stacks. I also am shipping a terrible python implementation of Forth! It doesnt support much, but if you make something cool message me!
My Forth: replit.com/@arbee/Forth
I did it a few days ago as you can see it on my Scrapbook posts, but I was told to ship this as well! This features a custom background with a texture, gradients, the application of elements like :before and :after , some cool borders and a great animation! From this I learned how to get better at design and with CSS.
To all of this I'm attaching some pictures 📸 of the projects and the links! 🔗 🌐
That's all for today, feel free to ⭐ any of the projects or follow me if you like and see y'all later with the next Ship!! Wahoo!
@J_cordz7+Today I added more scenes to my Sci-Fi 🛸 👽 comic at school! I also worked on features for some coding projects! 💻 :quad_parrot: Sadly :sadge: today I couldn't went to the cinema 🍿 to watch Dr. Strange :drstrange: , so I'll have to make my best to finish early all the work 📜 🖊️ 📖 I have to do tomorrow so I can have time to watch the movie! Also I'm almost ready to make my first ship ever!!! 🚢 :parrotdad:
@ian7+Slack Bot Ship 🚢
@CodeBot-U03D7LR2607 runs code from over 200 languages using Piston right from Slack.
To run code, make a code snippet, or send a message with the language you want to use, followed by a codeblock to run.
Try it out in #run-code! Instructions are pinned :tw_pushpin:.
View it on GitHub: github.com/YodaLightsabr/slack-run-code
@ArcadeWise6Hai! I am here to ship the notification system of the future! git.sr.ht/~arcade/notification-center Is a project I have been creating to make use of my old kindle. It is a “notification aggregator” of sorts, it pulls from my mac and my mastodon and uses a custom deduplication database middleware!
@ian7+A Wordle clone ship! 🚢 :emojile::shipitparrot:
Earlier today I attended @heyrajan’s Build Your Own Wordle workshop where I made my own Wordle clone and decided to make it with Hack Club Slack emojis. I used @BenjaminSmith’s Hack Club emoji API to get a list of emojis and display then once you solve it. I also added the same animations as the original Wordle because it was driving me crazy :eggsdee:. There are definitely a lot of bugs but that also means there are a lot of features :cooll-thumbs:. My score for today is in the 🧵.
Try today’s :emojile:Emojile:emojile.dino.icu ~and post your score in #wordle!~
:github: GitHub: github.com/yodalightsabr/emojile
@OliviaCook0Today I'm celebrating my second ever PR and feature merge onto Hack Club Bank 🥳 and users can submit forms to Bank team with their feedback and feature requests!
@neel.redkar0Smallish ship, I 3d printed a molecule/metal organic framework I generated for my science fair project, and like how it turned out!
@zrl0Making a stamp using a laser cutter!@jessicard7+excuse the double ship/scrapbook post, but I need to record this on my scrapbook 🙂 I made my first game lab game yesterday! I was having too much fun making sprites of my golden retriever, and ended up making Samantha Training Simulator. There’s a bunch more I want to add, but how it works is you have to perform a series of commands, and every one you get right is a point!
@abby1For my CS class at school I led a group in using Processing to build an animated GIF. We were inspired by the popular game Wordle to make a GIF of people attempting to solve a wordle. Our animated GIF shows different ways to get to a word. We designed the boards in Figma. Here is the repo: github.com/abbyfischler/swordle and I’m attaching a demo!
@karolina0AHHHH I DIDDD ITTTTTTTT :swoledoge:
finally finished the first MVP of my 2022 website. i stuck the prototype up on karolina.mgdubiel.com. considering how much creative freedom i let myself have with it, i'm pretty happy about how it turned out. i will definitely be refining it over the next few weeks until i get to a product i'm really proud of. for now, it's disabled on mobile, so that'll be something to add, too. i think i'll add it to #ship in a few days if i'm happy with it. 🚢
thanks for all your suggestions!! :)) (and if anyone knows how to make the dark mode look less unappealing... lmk)
@ian7+medium sized ship 🚢
Some background: I make a ton of small projects, and end up having to build my own API routes just for a small backend functionality. Parsing, validating, and responding to the requests takes a while to implement and takes time from the project I’m trying to make. That’s why I built <http://github.com/yodalightsabr/function-apis|function-apis>.
function-apis is a small express middleware that lets you define functions to automatically be available to the client. With as little as 11 lines of code, you can make an async request to the server and function-apis will handle the HTTP request behind the scenes.
:github:github.com/yodalightsabr/function-apis:npm:npmjs.com/package/function-apisalso: I think my next project will be an NPM package name finder, because I tried like 20 different package names and they were all taken.:peefest:edit: the package `available` seems to work
@clubscraps-U035D3VA7R77+Leo HcElroy wants to share their project with the community!
We made a new way to ship to scrapbook to make it easier for clubs to share projects with themselves and the community!
This is a recursive test of said tool.
@Skyascii0Been working on a Discord bot (again) which utilises the new ANSI color codes feature in code blocks to replicate a neofetch-like output in Discord. Gonna ship it right after I figure out how to add buttons without causing a mess 🚀
@HenryBass-U02KEJ8T6D87I finally got this to a working state!
It's a PowderToy / Noita cellular automita based simulation. So far it includes:
• Ambient Heat Transfer
• Really annoying fungus
• A lot of pixel types
• Dynamic res with a weird workaround
• State changes
• The smartest moss you've ever seen
• The dumbest flies you'll ever see
I've been working on this for a few days, and its the most enjoyable project I've ever worked on. PRs are welcome, and post anything cool you find/bugs/ideas
If you've got a slower laptop/PC use 64 px screen btw
Idk if this post would go better in ship, but this still is a WIP with tons of bugs
@zfogg1i've been animating and organizing color palettes for weeks getting ready to #ship them as a set of 10k NFTs.. these are getting pretty pretty 🤩
@heyrajan0In light of the new year, I thought I would design a new website that reflects on a new mindset: practicality & actionability. After 3 different design choices & changes, I found something that I thought was a profound demonstration of my work.
Check it out: heyrajan.com
Open Source: github.com/rajanwastaken/rajanwastaken
Would love to hear any feedback! Still working on the story page, as well as a couple links to socials :))
@sampoder4Organised a debate tournament called :pwaa: What The Pwaa! It was a ton of fun and we had so many people show up :D S/O to @arsh7chetana@NeilGhosh & @neervikasv who organised it with me. Check out the tab: onepwaa-tab.herokuapp.com/wtp@heyrajan0I wanted to learn how to build my own search engine, but didn't like the speed of web scrapers and the deployment of most alternatives. When I came across the search API, it hit me: let's build Google with Google. Well, moogle to be precise :cow-face:
Using the Google Search API and a few hacky solutions, I just published the Custom Search Engine workshop!! vv excited to see what other hack clubbers make :hyperfastparrot:
The best part about this workshop is customization! if CSS is your jam, then this is perfect to make something that you love. i would love any feedback, or just to see what y'all come up with!!
@caleb0Makin' a Tailwind plugin to ship later today!
@jasonaa3this is what i got from 2 hours of wrestling with unity and following a tutorial… needless to say my codejelly project won’t be finished but i will try to get something basic together that i can ship@BenjaminSmith7+For #codejelly I made reflection editor, a self-hosting web code editor. This means that it edits its own code, and runs everything entirely in the browser using service workers and IndexedDB!
Try it out here (only works in Chromium):
:twglobewith_meridians: : reflection-editor.netlify.app:github: : github.com/Merlin04/reflection@linus0🧠 Have you ever meant to reread an email before sending it but then forgot and just sent it anyways?
🍗 Now with Checkpoint you don’t have to worry about it!
🎄 Checkpoint is an extension for Apple Mail that reminds you to reread your emails. Just click a button (or check a box to do it for all emails) and you’ll be on your way!
🚨 Mail started supporting official extensions with macOS Monterey meaning this does not inject stuff into mail and is officially supported!
👁️ The code is pretty messy, it’ll be cleaned up “in the future”(This goes with codejelly's themes of amnesia and reflection)Download it from GitHub: <https://github.com/LinusS1/Checkpoint> or here (in the thread so scrappy doesn't get mad)@ArcadeWise6HELLO I AM BACK WITH A 🚢 ITS COOL YALL WANNA SEE???
Introducing: Dialect! A programming language for people who want to not actually write functional :haskell: code but wanna feel like it. Wanna install the compiler? Run 💻 npm i -g dialect-lang and you can use dialup, the dialect compiler! OR visit raleighwi.se/dialect and run it in your browser :chrome:! You can write webapps with it, or just write code. It compiles down to :js: and I've built a basic stdlib. Feel free to ask questions on how to use it here :) Oh and also here's the source: github.com/l3gacyb3ta/dialect
@ian7+When I first started using Replit, I hated how I could only have 5 always-on repls. I found UptimeRobot, which was okay, but I had to log in and configure something every time I made a new repl. I think Replit is a great way to host small projects like websites or bots, and I wanted an easier way to keep them online. So, I bring you ReplAwake.
To use it, you just click a link and add your repls into .replconfig. ReplAwake handles the rest! You can add more at any time right from within Replit.
You can see it at

@rishi1🎉 club ship club ship club ship
:turner: last friday, @heyrajan and i hosted the first hack club meeting at turner fenton for this year! after months of weird bureaucratic idiocy, we got clearance to use the largest makerspace at school—and we filled it up right to the brim!
after a couple days of stickering, we got hundreds of signups and invited everyone to lunch inside the robotics room, where we played a ton of glass animals w/ projectm visualizers on the walls and introduced everyone to the world of hacking ✨
we also got a fair bit of people onto the slack (where we’ll be doing most of our club stuffs); check out #turner and @turner-hackers! club season hasn’t officially started at our school yet, so i was pretty stunned to see the turnout we got—i’m so so so hyped for the next lil bit :parrot_love: you can find a compilation of photos & moments on twitter :))
❤️ happy hacking, homies~
