My Workflow

My first submission to the #actionshackathon21 was way too practical!

ᚒπŸͺ“ So I decided to go ahead with my quoth_the_vikings action!

Now you too can use the magical elder FUTHARK in your commit messages, blog posts, release tags etc! The sturlabragason/quoth_the_vikings action plucks a random sentence in a random language from one of the Icelandic sagas and converts from lame Latin alphabet to awesome elder FUTHARK!πŸ—‘οΈα›’

:hurtrealbad: What this action does: (in old norse) :goberserk:

Úr brunni Mímis, erut sagnir allar fengnar Galdur magnast enn, ok Ñ skjÑnum þulu myndar Eigi erut rúnir ristar úr letri Væringja Gerit menn þÑ allir, sem þeir skyldu met þulu þessa, gerist glaðir, ellegar notið til níðs!

:rage4: What this action does (in plain english): :rage3:

  • :suspect: First off, it downloads ALL of the icelandic sagas from sturlabragason/quoth_the_vikings! :suspect:
  • :hurtrealbad: It then picks a random sentence from a random saga, in a random language! :hurtrealbad:
  • :rage1: It then replaces all letters of the latin alphabet with the ELDER FUTHARK! :rage1:
  • :goberserk: Use the output as you please: they make great automated commit…
