@neel.redkar1Weeee a bit late but I wanted to ship our club board! We prepared a bunch for club day at our school (and made use of the dark arts of stickers), and managed to get ~110 emails to spam!!!
I might do a write up about things that helped, but it was super funny because the interactive website demo part (we built a synth that anyone could join in with on their phones) ended up being less helpful than just jumping up and down and yelling, and bribing moles in a bunch of groups to talk about how hackclub is cool (with stickers ofc).
We also managed to get almost 30 people for our first meeting (a lot of people emailed they couldn't make it lol), with a bunch of people coming back from last year, so it was super cool to know that people liked it!
@heyrajan1Hack the north was this weekend, which meant it was time to build—build something big.
This all started off as a platform to yell at people. No, seriously. In Global Politics class, we were introduced to the world of politics that we live in, and well, the propaganda and complexity for democracy shocked us. Articles are long, politics are complex, social issues are widespread, and ranting to friends leads to nowhere. We wanted to build a better way to learn—to clear the mist by alleviating false and opinionated facts through a gamified system. And that’s what Diplomatica is for, bringing the truth to everyone.
The platform is broken down into scraping relevant and desired articles, summarizing them with our AI models, and a decentralized debate platform to spark thought-provoking conversations and to compete with your friends.
A like on devpost, or a star on github, would be greatly appreciated :partyparrot:

@jasonaa0i got a lil bit of downtime in class today so i made a quick script with puppeteer that logs into my gradebook, takes a screenshot, and ~publically shames me~ forces me to be accountable for my grades! im planning on setting up a cron job to get this to run every friday. see source: github.com/jasonappah/is-clown
@Ishan0Finally got a physical whiteboard to actually get organized, did some homework and we finalized a car to buy!! Took so dang long in the showroom. Also played the actual Atari lunar lander whoaaaa.
Edit: I tried to make the photo of my to-do list small to hide the stuff on it but damn you 4K resolution
Wanted a super chill project to work on over the weekend so I made verpi, a program to show the status of your vercel deployments on a small light strip! Alongside a super clean codebase it also has this nifty little python script to compile a binary on the pi without changing your local environment one bit! Below is a quick demo:
@heyrajan1before and after today! - oh, and now its 95% mobile responsive
@ZoeDroulias0Outlining today, hoping to see my pre-written novel in a new light…

Time to round off the trifecta with my lil project built on @caleb’s API: hear the Slack! Built on top of NextJS, Howler, Geist and a custom sound selection, I made a generative music website that responds to the interactions from channels that @JoeBunyan’s in!
Here’s the basic algorithm: there’s a sound selection of 32 pads, synths, strings, vocal chops and a bunch of other goodies (randomly selected at build time & pretuned to one key) that get distributed into a sort of virtual grid. Every time a message comes through the WS stream, it gets hashcoded and split up into a coordinate system, which is then distributed across the grid to make a half-decent sounding live performance! It looks super cool when paired up with @matthewgleich’s amazing Raspi creation, and you can check it out at hear.hackclub.dev; source is up at github.com/hackclub/joebunyan/tree/main/sounds!
@avi0YOOOOOO I UNEXPECTEDLY GOT THIS COOL MATERIALS SCIENCE BOOK IN THE MAIL AND I'M EXCITED TO READ IT :DDDD
@ArcadeWise0🚢 Micro-ship time!
My family just got a new TV, and it has Samsung TV, so we wanted to remember the channels. And me, being a hacker, over-engineered a solution! Presenting: tv.raleighwi.se, it uses Next.js, with a JSON file for info, and blocks.css for prettyness.
@ArcadeWise0🚢 Large freight ship coming in! (For me)
Monis is a hyper-fast (sub 25ms for 100 pages!) lightweight Static Site Generator (SSG) written entirely in Crystal!
It supports custom jinja2 themes, as well as static files, and dynamic frontmatter (any parameters in the frontmatter get passed through to the jinja template).
It has generated it's own docs, hosted using GitHub pages. Check it out on gh: github.com/l3gacyb3ta/monis and checkout it's own docs, generated using it! raleighwi.se/monis
@Yoda1Made an NPM module for getting Google Form responses

I finally finished my Eagle Project! it took a total of 5 work days for around 3-6 hours each with help from some other scouts in my troop. When I started I was worried I wasn't going to finish it in time for the fair starting on the 18th of June but it went way faster than I expected!
The project was rebuilding and cleaning up the old planter for the local county fairgrounds. I've attached a few pictures of the stages and you can see how worn down it looked at first. All of the materials were directly donated except for the gravel for drainage behind the wall.
• The bricks were donated by two families who no longer wanted them. We just had to go remove them from their yards.
• The mulch was donated by a local recycling/landscaping company who wanted to help out and have their sign displayed for the fair.
• The new plants were donated by the master gardeners at the nearby Purdue Extension building. They needed to clear some space in their own garden, so they donated some plants they didn't need anymore.
Overall the project went much quicker and smoother than I expected it to. I'm really excited with how nice it turned out! All the plants are perennials, so it should look even better in the years to come!
@swlittle70So I did minigolf again and I actually won this time
@cp0Living my best life. Feel great no pain nothing today.
