@msw0worked on automating a :bank-hackclub-dark: mailing list with @ella! we’ve had a mailing list before, but no way to control who we’re sending it to. now, if @OliviaCook announces a perk that’s just for high school hackathons, we can send it out to just organizers of high school hackathons. it all runs through postal.hackclub.com, so I also learned about how their API works (it’s weird– check out the docs if you dare: sendy.co/api)
@ella0Wahoo! Starting today, transferring money between Hack Club Bank organizations is instant ⚡ This means that the transferred funds will reflect in your account balance immediately, even before the underlying transaction arrives (which usually takes a couple days).
Other incoming payments like donations and invoices aren’t quite instant yet, but if your event is coming soon and you have incoming funds still in transit, you can now ✨ request fronted funds ✨ from the details page of the donation/invoice—we’ll lend you the funds via an instant transfer.

@sampoder0making my best attempt at blowing up my house
@sampoder0built a live drawing activity! it’s a live activity for events where attendees write basic commands to draw shapes on a large screen, it’s intended for absolute beginners (going to use at a school assembly in feb)
The attendees enter a terminal-like interface where they write commands inspired by p5.js, these are then checked and sent to the webpage at /live using Socket.io which then runs them on the p5.js canvas.
Try the attendee view: draw-innov-week.sampoder.com And the main screen view: draw-innov-week.sampoder.com/live

@rishi0👋 Helloooo everyone!
Ricey here back at it again with another shippy ship for @paevik! Back during the dinosaur era (i.e. last week) in the mvp, there was just the bare minimum: you could only create entries and post them to #journal.
Now, @paevik is a fully-fledged app for journalling! V1 includes super cool things like searching by ID and Date, custom files (encoded in blocks bc Slack is stupid), a timeline view in the homepage, and some username trickery! Everything in the backend’s been refactored too—an API is in the works, and everything is super secure too!
Some really awesome things are in the pipeline for the next version (I’ve decided to hold off on implementing anonymous journal entries for now), like:
• Journal entries from #scrapbook entries
• Notifications & custom feeds (you’ll be able to subscribe to other users’ public entries)
• An API + website for exploring
For now, you can get started by running /entry , or going over to #journal to see what everyone’s doing! :parrot_love: 📝 📚
It’s been a lot of fun building Paevik, and I can’t wait to see what y’all will write about! A really special thank you to everyone that helped me test this monstrous creation—it really helped a lot :)
