Merry Christmas, all you lovely people.
5 days ago, I was sitting in a cafe with my teammate and we were discussing how cool Dev.to is, while I was writing an article about menubar apps. Then suddenly I asked him, "What if there was a menubar app for Dev.to?"
He said "Man! That would be super awesome!"
So I asked a few other developer friends about it and they agreed that it was a good idea. And that's how I decided that I would try my best to deliver this app within 5 days. As a Christmas present for the beautiful people of this community. 🤗
You can click a post to open it in the browser.
Or save the post in the Piggy list 🐷. It's like saving a post; the only difference is the next time you see that post in the top list, you will see a shouting piggy there, trying to convince you to read it😃. You can also remove the post from your piggy list by clicking the same piggy icon.
This app is available on all platforms.
I invite you all to contribute to this project. It's not the best code I have written but it works. Feel free to report bugs, suggest features or even work on one in your own free time.
A nifty little app that shows you the top posts on Dev.to in your menubar.
- Check the top posts from Dev.to right in your Menubar.
- Check the latest posts from top 100 tags on Dev.to.
- Save the posts in your Piggy List
🐷to read later.
- Filter the saved posts using tags.
- New Dark Mode
Before running this locally you must have these installed
It's built in electron so the process to start this is really easy
npm install electron -g
That's it, you will see it running in your menubar.
Feel free to contribute to this project and treat it like your own.
Thanks Dev.to👩🏻💻👨🏻💻, for being a massively inspiring platform.
