This may sound like a pointless project, but truth is, we all love to differentiate ourselves from others, and perhaps you might like to have this small touch on your GitHub page.
This open source CLI, available as an npm module, gives you the ability to "spray" your GH profile page.
The naming idea comes from Counter Strike, where you could spray walls with your custom image, it was very popular, to the point that a very famous technique was to spray a sexy half naked lady on a wall to drag enemies' attention and annihilate them while their defenses were lowered.
With this tool, you can draw on your 53 by 7 pixels calendar heatmap which is displayed on your profile.
It already contains several fonts so that you can easily write text.
$ github-spray -t hello
Otherwise, you can be more creative and design your own pattern.
$ github-spray -f my_octocat_heart_smiley_pattern.json
I made an handy web app to ease the creation.
It has numerous of options such as specifying the start date, the font, invert colors, adjust colors, flip horizontally or vertically the spray, set a repo origin url and push to it.
You only live once, go for it: GitHub Spray 🤙
Btw, the spray isn't permanent, you can delete it by removing the repo 🙂
