A Github's search engine for OSS contributors wannabe
GaelS May 15
Given that it can be hard for beginners to find THE good project and THE good issue to make a first open source contribution. Trying to find a solution for that problem, I have created an application powered by the Github's GraphQL API.
It works as a search engine which allows you to query by keywords and languages across all repositories to find issues tagged with beginners friendly labels (I have listed more than 50 of them so far!).
The Github's API does not really expect this kind of use case where you want to search across all repositories. So, tweaks and workarounds had to (and some still need to) be found to handle in a better way some features such as the pagination for instance.
Besides, to have fun while practicing my CSS skills, I tried to achieve a 80's vibes design, hope you'll like it or better, will want to improve it !
This app is realized with React (preact under the hood), React Router and React Apollo.
Feel free to give me your feedbacks whether you like it or not :)
PS : A small preview below :)
As a react developer, I believe that everyone who is working on a react project must develop all the components separately for taking advantage of that components philosophy behind this amazing front-end framework.
