Useful checker web app to see how close you are to achieving the requirements for a free t-shirt as part of Hacktoberfest.
My plan for this year's edition was to use next.js but sadly I ran out of time (starting the night before October may not have been the best plan!). If anyone fancies learning next.js along with me take a look at the nextjs branch where I start from scratch or the nextjs2 branch where I convert the existing app to nextjs. In case you hadn't worked it out already, JS is not my area of expertise, but one of the things I use this repo for is to keep up with JS and various libraries and things I read about and nextjs is something I like the look of.
So whether the nextjs version sees the light of day or not, I've still made a few updates to the existing app for 2019:
I'll try and get some issues up which I think might be good things to contribute.
I've removed the issue and pull request templates as I find them more of a barrier than anything. That said, I'm not opposed to reviewing new versions should anyone wish to PR.
They do! However, I still think it's worth having a checker that doesn't require auth and allows you to check on your mates (or celebrity developers!).
Recommended to use NVM
Generate a GitHub personal access token to ensure you don't get rate limited as often.
.env file using
.env.example as an example. Or export the GitHub token as an environment variable for Node.js to use:
set GITHUB_TOKEN=YOUR TOKEN
$env: GITHUB_TOKEN=YOUR TOKEN
$ npm install
$ npm run tailwind-gen
$ npm start
Point browser to localhost:5000
Want to run the API server and the frontend in their processes? Use this:
$ npm run start-frontend $ npm run start-server
or in a single command...
$ npm run start-development
As an alternative to the section above, you can run the app within a Docker container:
$ docker build -t hacktoberfest-checker .
$ docker run -p 5000:5000 -e "GITHUB_TOKEN=YOUR_TOKEN" hacktoberfest-checker
or use the docker-compose
$ docker-compose up --build
Styling is done through tailwind as much as possible no CSS should be added and class names favoured.
However, there will be occasions where custom CSS is required, in this case you need to edit
npm run tailwind-gen to generate the new CSS file.
Note: You should never directly edit
