I'm making a tiny interval timer web app called Intervals. It's in React JS. Very easy and beginner friendly, since I'm a beginner myself. There are many features I'd like to add that I've listed out in the README. The repo is here


Hey Neil, did you design the app ? Love the minimalist interface and the chiptune SFX!


By no means a huge OSS project, but for those that use Gatsby for their blog or other purposes, feel free to contribute to my Gatsby code snippets extension

And more recently, there is the Gatsby extension pack for VS Code. Feel free to contribute there to, if you think another extension should be added to the pack.



We are building the strictest python linter ever! Join us!

The strictest and most opinionated python linter ever!


wemake.services Supporters Build Status Coverage Python Version wemake-python-styleguide

Welcome to the strictest and most opinionated python linter ever.

wemake-python-styleguide logo

wemake-python-styleguide is actually a flake8 plugin with some other plugins as dependencies.


pip install wemake-python-styleguide

You will also need to create a setup.cfg file with the following contents.

This file is required to configure our linter and all 3rd party plugins it uses However, this is a temporary solution We are working at providing the required configuration for you in the future.


flake8 your_module.py

This app is still just good old flake8 And it won't change your existing workflow.

See "Usage" section in the docs for examples and integrations.

  • in-depth developer's documentation
  • friendly and welcoming community and any help you need from the project maintainers

Dec 14th? Don't say I'm going to have to re-live the productivity black hole that is the holiday season, Ben...

I don't have a project that I'm looking for contributors on, but I'm looking for projects that need a PowerShell pro, or a C# intermediate, or a Typescript noob. :D


I share Orby, a small library for the generation of 100% functional interfaces.


Orby approves the ideas of React in the use of Hooks, as a pattern to manipulate functional instances. but unlike React,
Orby seeks to stay simple and small, similar to the objectives of Preact.

Currently the library weighs 2.8kB, but delivers support to:

  1. Default effects: useState, useEffect, useMemo, useContext, useReducer.
  2. high order components.
  3. assignment of keys, to manipulate the order of the children.

I hope you like it.


A very simple project, though any ideas (feaure, security, etc) are very welcome. Its a paste tool and URL shortener with a very easy API:


Demo: pastr.xyz

Written in Flask / Python.

P.S.: I'm working to include a MD reader too, so when someone pastes Markdown, it renders it.


I'd be happy to have someone contribute to jinx, the little nginx wrapper script I wrote. One pain point I currently have is that the restarting of nginx only works on macOS and Ubuntu. So if someone wants to implement service management for their favorite distro, that'd be great!

Also if some shell magician feels like yelling at me for writing ugly shell code, I'll happily accept that too. :D


how did you add those icons on your files on github?


Hey! In general, you can use the GitHub emoji codes to add them to your commit messages. For example :wave: produces πŸ‘‹ (They work on dev.to too btw!)

There's also a specific key for the type of commit. I follow this one: gitmoji.carloscuesta.me/

If you can't be bothered to remember which emoji goes with which commit, you can also install a command-line helper: github.com/carloscuesta/gitmoji-cli
