Some months ago I created a little gem to quickly access to different GitHub sections from the command line. The name of my gem is vpr (view pull request).
The idea of this gem is simple, you call the
vpr command + some instruction + a commit SHA and you can access to a Github section of your interest. For example,
vpr visit 123abc sends you to the commit page of the selected commit.
In this Hacktoberfests I decided to open some issues to add the support for bitbucket pages. It was incredible the speed that the users started to contribute and recommend things for the project, like @andrewmcodes who added a GitHub action to run standardRB in the pull requests.
Even if this is a simple side project, I'm happy to have had the opportunity to be a maintainer this year. I hope the next year have the opportunity to host a contribution fest in my city.
All these contributions will be released to RubyGems in November, thanks to all the participants for your support. If you are interested in know more about vpr, please visit the Github repository.
A CLI to visit quickly github project sections
$ gem install vpr
$ vpr home # visit the project page in github
$ vpr pulls # visit the project pull requests page in github
$ vpr issues # visit the project issues page in github
$ vpr branches # visit the project branches page in github
$ vpr branch # 'visit the current branch in github'
$ vpr pull # 'visit the pull request for the current branch (if exist) in github'
$ vpr visit <commit> # visit the commit in github
$ vpr search <commit> # search the commit in github
After checking out the repo, run
bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run
rake spec to run the tests. You can also run
bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
