I'm looking for folks to try out and provide feedback on our Python API client, apiron. You can read about the impetus and see the code in the links below!

ithaka / apiron

:fried_egg: apiron is a Python package that helps you cook a tasty client for RESTful APIs. Just don't wash it with SOAP.


Documentation Status PyPI version Build Status

apiron helps you cook a tasty client for RESTful APIs. Just don't wash it with SOAP.

Pie in a cast iron skillet

Gathering data from multiple services has become a ubiquitous task for web application developers The complexity can grow quickly calling an API endpoint with multiple parameter sets calling multiple API endpoints, calling multiple endpoints in multiple APIs. While the business logic can get hairy, the code to interact with those APIs doesn't have to.

apiron provides declarative, structured configuration of services and endpoints with a unified interface for interacting with them.

Defining a service

A service definition requires a domain and one or more endpoints with which to interact:

from apiron.service.base import Service
from apiron.endpoint import JsonEndpoint

class GitHub(Service):
    domain = 'https://api.github.com'
    user = JsonEndpoint(path='/users/{username}')
    repo = JsonEndpoint(path='/repos/{org}/{repo}')

Interacting with a service

I have two projects that could use some help with.

The first is an open source GTD style todo list application called Tracks. It's more than 10 years old, but it's useful to a lot of people and I'm hoping some lovely people will come along and help me maintain it. Tracks is in need of code and design contributions, but any contribution at all would be incredibly welcome.

The second is a bit more well known. Jekyll. Jekyll is a large project, with many repositories, and the core team (which is currently me and three others) could use some help. We're working towards a 4.0 release and simply don't have enough people power to get all the things done we want to get done in a reasonable timeframe. Jekyll is in need of code contributions specifically, but again, any contribution at all would be incredibly welcome.

Thanks for reading! ❤

Php Hot Reloader

A single class to provide a lightweight Hot Reloader feature to PHP traditional projects without built-in Servers, Listeners or Sockets. Is compatible with frameworks like cake, laravel and codeIgniter. Required skills: php and javascript.

About: This class adds a live reload feature to any php project. It allows you to see your page dynamically changing while coding, without have to keep refreshing the browser on every change. By default, the script will turn your project tab reactive to changes in included/required files, css and js files related to the tab opened. Please see the "example" project on the sources. Every browser, every project, one single file.

ESFiddle - esfiddle.net

We are in the process of rewriting the frontend in React and the backend in Node and Typescript as well as a huge redesign and refocus into teaching.
The project is a bit influx at the minute as I do not have any time to work on the project (family stuff), so I am looking to hand this over to someone or help any contributors who would like to contribute.

If you are looking for something to contribute to that is a bit meatier than just updating docs or tests, then this is the project for you.

Feel free to raise an issue on github if you are having trouble getting started.

So the main way is to help out with the API if that is your expertise. Alternatively, if you'd like to dive in React, then there is a lot of work to do! github.com/esfiddle/site

The main thing on the site is to start work on the editor page. It should work similar to esfiddle.net! Let me know if you need any more help. Any thing you can do would be a massive help! :)

#BUIDL Explorer is an open-source repository and issues explorer. I wanted to simplify the way for newcomers to explore the blockchain space, find projects and start contributing.

It lists projects that are specifically 'Good first issues' or 'request help' from new contributors. Filter on your favorite language and you're good to go!

The project itself is open-source as well of course. Could easily be forked to keep track of other topics/technologies.

Sail is a lightweight Rails engine that brings an admin panel for managing configuration settings on a live Rails app


Maintainability Build Status Test Coverage Gem Version


This Rails engine brings a setting model into your app to be used as feature flags, gauges, knobs and other live controls you may need.

It saves configurations to the database so that they can be changed while the application is running, without requiring a deploy.

Having this ability enables live experiments and tuning to find an application's best setup.

Enable/Disable a new feature, turn ON/OFF ab testing for new functionality, change jobs' parameters to tune performance, you name it.

It comes with a lightweight responsive admin dashboard for searching and changing configurations on the fly.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'sail'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install sail

Adding the following line to your routes file will make the dashboard available at <base_url>/sail

mount Sail::Engine => '/sail'

Running the install generator…

Note: dev.to is using Sail! Therefore, if you believe some feature would be useful here, open an issue with a feature request.

Note2: you can also help by dropping a thumbs up in this pull request to add Sail to awesome-ruby!

Of course, everyone is welcome to peruse the open dev.to issues for bugs and features they can take a stab at.

I just created this issue if anyone wants to take a look on the Ruby backend side of things:

Reduce queries with comments on article show page. #1606

Describe the bug Our worst-case scenario on article show pages is an n+1 problem. We do a fair amount of caching and we have a somewhat efficient approach to not make literally every query. But still, we do extra queries on some requests, and when a page with a lot of comments gets loaded cold, it can be a big outlier in performance.

To Reproduce Create an article in development and add a bunch of comments at different levels. You should see lots of queries happen.

Expected behavior A single query should be enough to load all the comments into memory. All comments that belong to an article have a commentable_id of that article, even sub-comments. We use the ancestry gem to handle the tree logic.

Since we can grab all the comments that would be part of the tree with a single query, we should be able to only ever make a single comments query and then work on that set from there.

I think the solution would be something along these lines:



Ironing that out would greatly improve worst-case-scenario page loads on posts with lots of comments.

AlloyCI / alloy_ci

Continuous Integration, Deployment, and Delivery coordinator, written in Elixir.

Alloy CI

build status Docker Coverage Status

AlloyCI is a Continuous Integration, Deployment, and Delivery coordinator written in Elixir, that takes advantage of the GitLab CI Runner, and its capabilities as executor. It also provides its own runner, the Alloy Runner which is a fork of the GitLab CI Runner, with extra capabilities.

It aims to bridge the gap between GitLab's CI runner and GitHub. GitLab's CI runner is tightly coupled with GitLab, so it is not possible to use one of these runners from a GitHub codebase.

With AlloyCI you will be able to register one of the Runner projects to the platform connect it to one of your GitHub repositories, and have it run your CI and CD pipelines.

AlloyCI will report the status of your pipelines to your pull requests, branches, and commits, so you can always know their status, just like any other CI service.

I'm building a library that simplifies asynchronous programming with Java - Tascalate Concurrent. Inside you can find CompletionStage implementation for blocking and/or I/O-bound tasks (while the standard CompletableFuture is unsuitable for this); retry/poll functionality; extended operations to work with timeouts/delay and many other useful utilities.

Though I'm testing the library myself "in the wild" (several commercial projects where it's pretty intensively used), I would like to have a feedback from the community to make the library better.

vsilaev / tascalate-concurrent

Implementation of blocking (IO-Bound) cancellable java.util.concurrent.CompletionStage and related extensions to java.util.concurrent.ExecutorService-s

Maven Central GitHub release license


The library provides an implementation of the CompletionStage interface and related classes these are designed to support long-running blocking tasks (typically, I/O bound). This functionality augments the sole Java 8 built-in implementation, CompletableFuture, that is primarily supports computational tasks. Also, the library helps with numerous asynchronous programing challenges like handling timeouts, retry/poll functionality, orchestrating results of multiple concurrent computations and similar.

Since the version 0.7.0 the library is shipped as a multi-release JAR and may be used both with Java 8 as a classpath library or with Java 9+ as a module.

Why a CompletableFuture is not enough?

There are several shortcomings associated with CompletableFuture implementation that complicate its usage for real-life asynchronous programming, especially when you have to work with I/O-bound interruptible tasks:

  1. CompletableFuture.cancel() method does not interrupt underlying thread; it merely puts future to exceptionally completed state. So even if you use any blocking calls inside…
