I just made a PR for the Ruby site...

Add DEV link to blog page (en) #2163

This pull request adds a link for the Ruby tag on DEV. DEV is the fastest growing community blogging ecosystem in software and makes a lot of sense right here in this list.

There are new posts consistently flowing into the tag, and it is becoming one of the best Ruby resources available.

I emphasized blogging here because that seemed to fit the purpose of the "blogs" page already established on the site. DEV is more than just blogging, but I think you might describe things differently if you're adding it to a footer, adding to a community page, etc.

Context is key.


Let's see :)

Add link to links/follow in footer partial #257

This pull request adds a link for the Nuxt tag on DEV. DEV is the fastest growing community blogging ecosystem in software. Links to the DEV Community can also be found on making this a perfect symbiosis.

There are new posts consistently flowing into the tag and this will help both Nuxt and the DEV Community.

If this is not the right place for the link or the wording is not what you want, let me know what might be more appropriate. Thanks a lot!

Code for the platform can be found here:

Also just added to the Vue Community page :)

Added DEV link to community page #2333

This pull request adds a link for the Vue tag on DEV. DEV is the fastest growing community blogging ecosystem in software and it would be a good idea to include it in the Vue Ecosystem section on the community page.

There are regularly new posts added to the Vue tag, and it's one of the most followed tags on Dev currently.

Mhm, but isn't that what Ben already did in Feb this year? Or am i mistaken?

I looked for the open PRs and didn't see it added to that particular page and thought it might be helpful to include in the Vue Ecosystem section on the Learn page since it would be applicable to learning Vue. Ben's PR was to add it to the dropdown in the Ecosystem page menu. Mainly just trying to help spread the word and participate in Hacktoberfest :)

That's honorable and really cool, I was just a bit afraid someone could interpret it as spam if we submit too often to the same project. Awesome that you are helping on this :)

Thanks Simon! Really appreciate it. I wasn't hoping to spam them, just hoping to spread the word since I love Dev and thought it might be a good place to share on their community page. Appreciate it! Hope your Nuxt PR gets merged as well.


In general, contributing to the websites associated with projects can be incredibly helpful to maintainers. These kinds of contributions are generally very well received.


I contributed to DEV by adding small improvements to the tag moderator page!

It's quite a small one, but it was my first time trying out Ruby on Rails - Had to go the safe way (Better this than breaking all the tests)

Looking forward to contribute more on this great website + community! <3

Improve the tag edit page (Tag moderators only) #4137

What type of PR is this? (check all applicable)

  • [ ] Refactor
  • [x] Feature
  • [ ] Bug Fix
  • [ ] Documentation Update


Since it's my first time working with Ruby, I decided to learn about ERB and do minor yet pleasing styling changes:

  • Decreased indentation for tag-edit.scss
  • Imported variables & mixins for code standardisation.
  • Moved the section order around to show mainly used ones first.
  • Textarea resizing is restricted to vertical
  • Focusing on a text field will set the border to a different colour
  • The 'Save Changes' CTA has been changed to go in accord with DEV's aesthetic

Hey Ben is there any list easy to fix bugs that haven't been looked too much for us beginners looking to help? Or do you suggest any of the tags for us not so skilled devs?


My Own Contribution : )
Awaiting review ...
Way to go DEV 🔥

Update - Add DEV Community to Support Section #18394

This PR adds the DEV Community link to 'Where to get support' section.

DEV Community is a platform where software developers share articles and engage in discussions on different topics of which Gatsby Content has been growing in popularity.

This will be a useful link to point to the official place to discuss Gatsby matters on the platform.
