Really small learning project I made. Welcoming any optimizations, bug fixes, etc.

This IS awesome! Thanks for sharing! I want to learn Vue/Vuex at some point in time, as well, but learning React at the moment.

Bit of reverse plugging, but am looking for developers, but as users.

TL;DR After one to many discussions about using a CI to check for code quality is difficult i decided to opensource and extend my collection of CI containers.

So i created pipeline-components, in the hope to help developers building pipelines.

The main repository is on Gitlab
A Mirror on Github
and the containers on Docker
Documentation Website

P.S. Hopefully i have the time next 2 weeks to write a bit longer introduction post here on

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

VS Code Gatsby Snippets Extension screen shot

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.

Multiplayer games are 10 times more fun than single player games, but they are also hard to make. We want to focus on the game logic instead of networking and room management.

I am working on a multiplayer game server engine using TypeScript, ws. The objective is to provide a framework of server-client communication and a room management system so that developers can focus on just writing the game logic.

I've got a pen test orchestration/automation project called decker that's really young. It lets you write pen tests declaratively and uses the same config language as Terraform.
Contributions of any type are welcome.

Our company develops a free and Open Source presentation and assembly system.It is used by political parties to organize conventions as well as to organize other meetings and conferences. We too had a testrun for a small suborganization for the united nations.

Version 3 is coming soon with current angular and Material design.

If you are into python (django) and JavaScript and want to jump into an interesting project, you are welcome.

I made a Sublime Text 3 color scheme based on Sarah Drasner's Night Owl for Visual Studio Code.

Feedback and contributions are welcome.

A Sublime Text color scheme based on Sarah Drasner's Night Owl VSCode theme

A port of Sarah Drasner's Night Owl VSCode theme

A theme for the night owls out there. Works well in the daytime, too, but this theme is fine-tuned for those of us who like to code late into the night

As of 1.0.0, there's a Light Owl Theme too! Color balanced from the Dark version for easy viewing in daylight.

Getting Started



Install Night Owl via Package Control.

  1. Open the Command Palette via Ctrl/+Shift+p
  2. Select Package Control: Install Package
  3. Search for Night Owl and press ↲ Enter


  1. Clone or download this repository, (re)name the folder to Night Owl if necessary.
  2. Move the folder inside your sublime /Packages. (Preferences > Browse Packages...)


Color Scheme

  1. Open the Command Palette via Ctrl/+Shift+p
  2. Select UI: Select Color Scheme
  3. Search for Night Owlor Night

Not available on Package Control yet.

I'm looking for help with a project called Fog Machine:

Te idea is to make a self-hosted server for artists to sell their music and merch. I have a designer on board already and I am doing a lot of the backend.

I could use help with the frontend. Specifically we are trying to add soundcloud like waveforms for songs which is harder than it looks. Also could use help on the backend adding IPFS or DAT support for backing up music

Recently I launched my side project Swyya which represent a community to share open-source projects that you can contribute to.
Also, the project itself open sourced for everyone and you can find it on this Github Repo

English-like DSL for website coding

There's a simple reason why so many software projects fail to deliver and become maintenance nightmares. It's because the coding is too complex. To quote Linus, "given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow". The big mistake is to express business logic in a 3GL, because too few eyeballs (i.e. only experts) can read it and the code rapidly becomes unmaintainable. SQL works so well because it occupies the middle ground where it can be read and understood by both domain experts and programmers. So let's have more DSLs.

My project is a declarative English-like script language coded in JavaScript and currently implemented as a WordPress plugin. Its purpose is to do all the things people currently use JS for in the browser, but to ensure the resulting code is easily readable by any competent website builder or maintenance person - for the lifetime of the website. In a sense it's the next step beyond frameworks.

I use it myself to code websites in such a way that no HTML or JS is visible, just English-like statements containing DOM and other objects, styles and a variety of everyday verbs. The problem is, being English-like it's not a closed vocabulary in the way most computer languages are, and although the architecture is designed for indefinite expansion I'm having trouble keeping up with my own ideas, which tend to run way ahead of what I can achieve. So I'd really like to interest other people in joining in and taking it forward. Such as:

JavaScript programmers

Just vanilla JS; the structure is quite simple and everything outside the core is in plugin, independent modules. But there are potentially a lot of them. The general idea is you take a chunk of functionality - it could be as simple as setting an attribute or as complex as a Google Map - and devise a suitable script syntax to wrap it in. Then you code the wrapper. With practice it can be done in minutes or hours, not days. More skilled programmers can also offer advice on refactoring; something I'm sure there's plenty of scope for.

Website builders

Only modest programming skills are needed; the key attribute is a clear view of what the site should do. The bigger the site, the better; EasyCoder excels at handling the needs of big single-page designs that pull in scripts and data on demand from a REST server and give a response time of a couple of seconds or less while doing so.


As above, but the aim being to show off the capabilities of the system and get it noticed.

Documentation writers

It could do with a properly thought-out structure that's good for indefinite expansion. Something along the lines of JavaDoc, perhaps.

If you want to know more, contact details (email and Slack) are on the EasyCoder website:

I'm building a boilerplate for Angular projects, that should contain at least all of the required things to jump quickly to a new project without worrying about folder organization and any code setup to start.

It repo contains the layout stuff and configuration setup.
The key difference between this boilerplate and the others that everything is organized beside the mindset of building modular and reusable.

Take a look ^
