@taylorylee0Hi there! :parachute: Long time no see Hack Club. A few life updates… I voted for the first time a few weeks ago, been teaching kids how to code, playing around w/ how to create Figma widgets/plugins and did something kinda wild today… I jumped out of an airplane with my mom! It was a surreal, exciting experience and reminds me how small we are in this vast universe and to continue to do something outside of my comfort zone. I am super grateful and would love to do something like this again!
@matt2Spent the past few days redesigning my website. Much cleaner codebase, better responsive layout, light mode, and some pretty sick animations when loading in. Would love some feedback :)
@BenjaminSmith0Who needs variables when you have functions that can return a value
@Rafi0Working with LED Dot Matrix display and shift registers.
@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
@neel.redkar0weeeee I finally wrote a bit on the Zephyr! I don’t think it does it justice, but I just wanted to get something out, and finally stop procrastinating on it! I just wanted to say that I’m so thankful, and ya’ll really changed my life 💖!
Check it out at my notebook @ notebook.neelr.dev/stories/the-hacker-zephyr..
and you can checkout a quick video I made of my instagram highlights at the bottom of the post!
@heyrajan0finally decided to learn the ins and outs of chakra ui - having LOTS of fun!!
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:
@courtney0I turned 17 today! I feel so old, but I’m so grateful for all of the years and experiences. I’m especially thankful that I get to be a part of a community like Hack Club; y’all are literally the best. Here are some of my old 😭 pictures.

@Ishan0So yesterday I made a nightstand with my sister, received my shipathon pizza and Zach revealed that I’m streaming with Ross today. I also tried to understand some Kotlin and run it but neither worked lol. V nervous for the stream AAAAA :dogecoin:
@ella0yay, my PR for hackclub/v3 got merged today. i rewrote the bank page in Next.js + theme-ui (formerly running on Gatsby and styled jsx). it took me a while, but i learned a lot. s/o to sam for helping me and reviewing my code!
@pranavnt0Played tennis with @Ishan at a local park (although it was a lot more fetch than tennis lol)!!
@matthew0i was going to wait to test it with multiple users before shipping but THIS IS HACK CLUB, that is not necessary!!! i love #slotify but as an apple music user i hate feeling left out of all the cool tools people make that are spotify-only. so i decided to bravely battle the apple music api and build slotify for apple music! i shared a proof-of-concept in #scrapbook a few days ago that was hardcoded with my credentials, but now you can use it too if you are an apple music user :applemusic: just head over to apple-music-slack-status-1.techbug2012.repl.co and sign in with slack & apple music. use /music-status to toggle it on/off (it should be on by default after you authenticate though). if you run into any issues at any point, please let me know 🙏
@rishi0🔉 🔊 📣
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!
@matthew0one of my least favorite things about using apple music is that i feel left out of all of the cool tools that developers build that are spotify-only, because the apple music api is so exclusive and bad that nobody wants to build any tools for apple music. i've been especially feeling this with @StevenConaway's #slotify—so i learned how the apple music api works and built slotify for apple music :applemusic::yeah: this is just a bare-bones MVP with some bugs, and right now it's just for me, but if you use apple music and want to use it too, let me know and i'll add multi-user support
@sampoder0Tonight, @arsh7chetana, @NeilGhosh & I managed to win the Junior AWS Build On ASEAN 2021 hackathon in Singapore :D We did the Cognizant track which was about creating positive communities and all. Anyways, our project was a website that let people look around for places where they can volunteer and then message the organisers, we had to focus on security and all so we built an ID verification system with SingPass (SG government’s OAuth system to have people log in with their national ID cards) and a few other things (some admittedly, a bit gimmicky). Anyhow, here’s a screenshot. We’ve got a limited public version that we put up at comiteer.co & I’ve put the code up at github.com/sampoder/comiteer. First time winning a hackathon so I’m pretty ecstatic lol, also had a ton of fun doing it yee
@tejasag0Got my first arduino today and wrote some code to make it flash the light in morse code for whatever text the user inputs
@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.
@RebeccaWang0PYTHON CONTROLS A PLANE :screaming-cat: MY MIND IS BLOWN, AND IM ADDING IN MORE CODE NOW HEHE
@aaryan3Exploring GitHub explore 🚀 Reading quality code builds up your muscle memory, it's really fun just reading good quality code :)
@ella0making something :hyper-dino-wave: but it’s going very slowly cause i keep getting rate limited :flushed-fb:
