Converted a twitter discussion into a blog article which has gone viral with over 2k views. It's crazy because I really did not expect that from this article :-)

Link to the article - dev.to/skaytech/why-do-you-want-to...

In fact, I did see that feature on the main feed section too. I'm curious on the algorithm of how Dev.to promotes certain articles to the feed section. Any information on that would be gladly appreciated.

My heartfelt thanks to the Dev community for providing such a wonderful platform for blogging. I've never enjoyed writing more :-)

I'm SUCH a fan of when DEV members use discussion posts as a jumping off point for full articles. It kind of sums up what DEV is all about to me — turning collective opinions/thoughts/debate into useful evergreen content. Way to go and thanks for being PART of this community!

SVG Animations are super cool thing to use in any project. You can animate cool stuffs within 10KB. I am using Greensock (GSAP) here for the same.

I recently published a series of animations using gsap. Check it out.

My wife finished her final round of surgery (3) for her gallbladder removal. She has been fighting strong for nearly 2 months, It's great to see her finally getting back on her feet.

I learned how to use Netlify for deploying some of my projects and learned how to use Eleventy in a basic fashion. That concluded with making this template to contribute to and OSS project.

I have published my very first freeCodeCamp article titled "The Docker Handbook". It's an huge article with enough content to take someone from 0 to 1 in Docker.

Also, I've just redesigned my farhan.info with TailwindCSS. It is a big deal to me as I don't consider myself as that much of a front-end guy.

Some excellent wins in here — good work, everyone!

After what feels like an age (hint: it has been an age in the Internet time), I've got an actual website up and running, as an adjunct to the application.

The plan had been to push forward with the public sharing in the application and use that to publish pages to build a website. But the simple fact is it would foolish to think I could replicate a fraction of what WordPress does in a few weeks or months…

Lesson learned. Progress made.

Figuring out why it was that, even though I was using a common docker file to do it, my resultant Red Hat images were double the size of my CentOS images. And, in the end, not only did I reduce the size of my Red Hat image, I further reduced the size of my CentOS image.

...Was doing the above because, while the project I'm on refuses to enable the CI features of their internal git-service, they don't ban me from using local containers to do manual versions of the kinds CI activities I've become used to on other projects.

Instructions

  • Add the comment <!--START_SECTION:activity--> (entry point) within README.md. You can find an example here.

  • It's the time to create a workflow file.

.github/workflows/update-readme.yml

name: Update README

on:
  schedule:
    - cron: '*/30 * * * *'

jobs:
  build:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest

    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2
      - uses: jamesgeorge007/github-activity-readme@master
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}

The above job runs every half an hour, you can change it as you wish based on the cron syntax.

You can find an example here.
