  • Replaces curse words in Issues and Pull Requests with approved words in The Good Place

Feature 1

  • Comments a forking accurate GIF when you first label an issue (supports GitHub's default labels)

Additional Resources / Info

The action was created using JavaScript and the Octokit API. The documentation provided for Octokit was easy to understand for beginners like me. GIFs used were from GIPHY.

Huge thank you as well to the JavaScript Actions course of the GitHub Training Team which taught me the basic concepts I needed to learn. I highly suggest that you check that out if you'd like to create your own.

I haven't run it, but will this run a cropper with the Scunthorpe problem?

Without word boundaries in the regular expression, it'll cause strife with Cockney Rhyming Slang generators.

 

Only knew about this problem as you raised it! I’ll be testing it out to see.

 

Just deployed a fix for the Scunthorpe problem. I've changed the regular expression to account for word boundaries.

Now words like classic won't turn into clashic (since ass -> ash). Thanks for bringing this up!
