Are you looking to contribute to an open source project in this Hacktoberfest? or want to get started with latest technologies like VueJS & NuxtJS?
We're developing Hoppscotch, an open source API request builder for the web, and would love to count you as a contributor to improve our components & applications.
Web app: hoppscotch.io
24k+ stars on GitHub • # 2 product of the day on Product Hunt • featured in Indie Hackers, Hacker news, Hacker noon, YouTube & open source podcast etc.
Get started 🚀
As the project’s size grew quite a bit the past couple of months, you might ask yourself, where to get started 🤔?
Meet the technology stack:
- NuxtJS: The Intuitive Vue Framework

As a result now one can easily add code generation for multiple programming languages (and/or libraries, or even programs), even if you don't have much knowledge about the rest of the Hoppscotch codebase.
How to add your own code generator?
Step 1: Create a code generator object
Code generator objects are placed on
helpers/codegen/generators folder, they have a specified
name (display name) and a generator function which has a parameter,
context containing all the data about the request (refer, the existing generators to see which all data is available). The generator function should at the end return a string which is the final generated request code. The generator functions do not currently offer async support, but if you want async support, ping @andrewbastin
Step 2: Register your new codegen object
Registration of the valid code generators are done through the
helpers/codegen/codegen.js file. Just import your codegen object in the file and add it to the
Once that is done, your code generator will be made available in the
Generate Code dialog as usual.
Any specific platforms ?
Although our goal is to eventually provide support for possibly all programming languages/libraries/programs. We would really love to see these platforms implemented.
- Go Native codegen
- NodeJS Request codegen
- NodeJS Native codegen
- PowerShell RestMethod codegen
- PHP cURL codegen
- Python Requests codegen
- Python http.client codegen
- Shell wget codegen
- C# RestSharp codegen
But even if it is not in this list, we would really love it to be included. So do not be discouraged. Please do make a PR for adding support to your platform of your choice.
2. i18n - Internationalization
3. Issues - Bugs and fixes
For the purpose of this first experience, we've have selected the issues tagged
#hacktoberfest which we're hoping to implement during this span on a month.
Here are some issues/feature requests to start with:
- #1196 — Add session persistence to realtime tabs — Easy
- #1110 — Collapsed Editor can be resized and dragging down doesn't increase code view — Easy
- #392 — Configuration client certificates for SSL — Medium
- #870 — Sync Collections with Git repo — Medium
- #933 — Support header manipulation and pre-request scripting while establishing websocket connection — Medium
Check out the issues tab for more 😋 or alternatively you can create new features (and prolly PRs 😉) or optimize any existing functions/routines.
If you're interested in writing tests, contribute to our test cases. We're using Jest for testing. Ping @andrewbastin for any help.
5. Beta testers
If you have general feedback, please reply here.
Feel free to ping us on Discord or Telegram for any help.
Cherry on the cake 🍒🎂
Beside unlocking some karma points, you know what would be cool with your contributions 🤔? All the improvements you'll submit will not only have effect to the components, but also they'll have an impact on open source dev community & be included in our live platform used by 80k+ users. Kind of cool to know that something you would develop will for sure be available in an online live application! isn’t it?
Support open source and pick a limited edition T-shirt 👕 or plant a tree! 🌱
To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests (PRs) between October 1-31 (in any time zone). PRs can be made to any public repo on GitHub, not only the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. This year, the first 70,000 participants who successfully complete the challenge will earn a Hacktoberfest tee or plant a tree.
Happy hacking ❤️
