Hacktoberfest 2018 - Anyone looking for open source contributors?

I have usually only done the odd hackathon here and there and personal open source projects. This years hacktoberfest seems like a nice opportunity to start contributing back!

Does anyone have any projects they are looking for open source contributors?

If you're a C/C++ programmer looking for some projects to hack on then I have few a repository that needs hacking.

SDLImageWrapper is a C++ wrapper around SDL_Texture to help with some of the heavy lifting when using images in SDL2. Currently, it supports positioning of images and rendering. Checkout the README.md file for more information.

If you wanted to use Rust's Result type in C++ then the Result for C++ project is the solution for your problem. The API is not complete as some methods found in the native Rust Result type are not yet implemented in C++ version. Also, because of the language differences, not everything will map perfectly.

Libpixmap is a small and simple to use library that reads and writes PPM (portable pixmap) images using a C API. The first version of the library was released last week and we are looking mainly to improve the documentation for the API but additions to features and performance improvements are welcomed, too.

If you would like to see the project: github.com/Noah11012/libpixmap

EMOJI-LOG

After building hundreds of open source software I've ended up inventing a git commit log standard called EMOJI-LOG.

Philosophy

PHILOSOPHY

I like emoji. I like ’em a lot. Programming, code, geeks/nerds, open source, all of that is inherently dull and sometimes boring. Emoji (which is, in fact, the plural of emoji) helps me add colors and emotions to the mix. Nothing bad if you want to add emotions to this 2D flat text-based world of code. I found out that instead of memorizing hundreds of emoji it's better to keep the categories small and general.

  1. IMPERATIVE ↓
    • Make your Git commit messages imperative.
    • Write commit message like you're giving an order.
    • E.g. Use βœ… Add instead of ❌ Added.
    • E.g. Use βœ… Create instead of ❌ Creating.
  2. RULES ↓
    • Small number of categories β€” easy to memorize.
    • Nothing more nothing less.
    • E.g. πŸ“¦ NEW,πŸ‘Œ IMPROVE…

The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters
Beautiful is better than ugly
Explicit is better than implicit
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.
Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Readability counts.
Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.

You can contribute themes for Everest, a REST client that I'm building. All you need is CSS!

I'm planning to ship the best ones with the next release of Everest!

You can find more details here: Build a theme for Everest with just CSS!

RohitAwate / Everest

A beautiful, cross-platform REST client.

everestheader

Everest (formerly RESTaurant) is an upcoming REST API testing client written in JavaFX.

home Everest running on Windows 10.

Why Everest?

  • Everest is written in Java. Thus, it is significantly lighter on resources and more responsive than its Electron-based alternatives like Postman. It aims to provide the same level of functionality in a lighter, native but equally slick package.

  • Aesthetic is very important. With a gorgeous, flat design, Everest is a pleasure to look at and to work with. It is also entirely theme-able.

    I want you to want to use it!

  • Being a Java application, Everest is inherently cross-platform. It will run anywhere there's a JVM.

  • Everest will offer cloud synchronization of your projects powered by Summit. It will be available as a cloud service early next year or you may also choose to self-host it.

Examples

Function parameter order examples.

Arrays fn()

SPL: array array_map ( callable $callback, array $arr1, array $_ = null) { }

Normie: array norm_array_map( array $array, callable $callback, array $userdata = null): array

Strings fn()

Sail is still looking for more contributors. We want more setting types and better looking visuals. Take a look at the issues section for a possible start!

vinistock / sail

Sail brings settings to help you navigate your Rails application live

Maintainability Build Status Test Coverage Gem Version

Sail

This Rails engine brings a setting model into your app to be used as feature flags, gauges, knobs and other live controls you may need.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'sail'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install sail

Adding the following line to your routes file will make the dashboard available at <base_url>/sail

mount Sail::Engine => '/sail'

Running the generator will create the settings table for your application.

$ rails g sail my_desired_migration_name

Which generates a migration to create the following table

create_table :sail_settings do |t|
  t.string :name, null: false
  t.text :description
  t.string :value, null: false
  t.integer :cast_type, null: false, limit: 1
  t.index ["name"], name: "index_settings_on_name", unique: true
  t.timetamps
end
