You Contribute You Rock - (Submission)

Hey there folks 👋

This is a summary of my previous 3 weeks that I spent on github actions. As I wrote in the previous blog, I am developing a Contributor Appreciator Action called YouRock.

This is my submission for #️⃣actionsHackathon

Aim and Impact

This action will help #️⃣ maintainers to improve the outreach and Public Relations.

What it do?

Sends out a personalized email appreciating the contribution with some badges and Image Processed Personalized Material

Submission Categories:

#️⃣Maintainer Must-Haves, #️⃣Wacky Wildcards.

What it looks like?

How it works?

When a user contributes to a particular repository, the YouRock action gets triggered and performs the following steps:

  1. User's public data gets fetched from Github graphQL API.
  2. A small image processing task gets executed. It pastes the mask image by doing facial recognition using OpenCV.

(In this case the mask image is given below ⬇️ But it can be changed easily according to the organizations need)

  1. Then a mini mailing server sends the email from your given email.

How to test?

Alt Text

  1. Just open a new issue on this YouRock Repo.
  2. You'll receive a personalized email (email account linked to your Github)

How to use it in your repository?
