Your year in DEV - Check your stats!

So today @maurogarcia_19 and I spent the whole afternoon creating a web tool to allow everyone on DEV to see their blog stats of 2019!

Here's how my year in DEV.to looks like:

A screenshot of the site with my blog's stats: I wrote 16 articles, received a total of 307 comments and 2871 reactions. My top article was "6 ways minimalism can help you write clean code"

Curious about your stats? Try it out yourself!

👉 My year in DEV

Check out the GitHub repo:

GitHub logo uppernauts / year-in-dev

A web tool tool that displays a summary of your DEV.to blog's stats!

This project was a fun excuse for me to learn about Svelte and Sapper.

Let me know what you think!

Also, I thought it'd be cool if we could use #MyYearInDev to share our stats on this platform or twitter, in case you want to participate!

This project was a fun excuse for me to learn about Svelte and Sapper.

This shows that purpose driven learning is the best way to learn.

Loved this web tool but it is case sensitive due to which if I type VikasPandey121 or Vikaspandey121 then I will not receive any result. I can see my analysis only if I use vikaspandey121. I would love to resolve this issue.

Ha.. I'd been working on something similar using Svelte as well! Looks cool!

Thank you! I figure someone would think about doing something similar for this time of the year. We got the idea from Spotify. I wonder if someone did it last year.

Amazing work. If you plan to continue developing it, you can get inspired from Spotify's "year in review" feature.

Collapse
 
paulasantamaria profile image
Paula Santamaría Author

That's where we got the inspiration from in the first place, we just had to adapt it to use the public info provided by the DEV.to API.

Thank you, Jakob! :)

If you have any suggestions please feel free to write a comment here or an issue / PR on GitHub.

Here are a bunch of random ideas (I didn't filter or analyze them. I raw material XD)

  • most popular post & comment
  • most shared post (Twitter, fb, etc. I think there used to be a way of tracking this)
  • most popular person I follow
  • most influential person that follows me
  • total count of comments and total reaction my comments received
  • my most noteworthy follower (the one that reacted / commented the most to my articles / posts)
  • AVG posts / comments per month / year
  • stats comparison between years
  • some stats related to tags (e.g.tags I commented the most on)
  • time spent reading (not sure this is available. Each article has an estimated necessary time. If DEV tracks all articles I read, then a sum of them. Otherwise, the sum of all articles I commented on)
  • count posts I loved
  • count posts I unicorned

Hope at least some of the suggestions will inspire you :)

All great ideas! We'll have to check if some of the required info is available through the API, though.
