Hacktoberfest - Random Issue Picker

The Hacktoberfest2020 is just around the corner, but where to contribute?

Andreas Frömer has created a small tool that can help you. The "Random Issue Picker" selects a random issue from GitHub based on certain criteria.

Requirements for the tool:

  • PHP 7.3+
  • composer

How to use it

$ git clone
$ cd random-issue-picker
$ composer install
$ bin/rip random:issue -l js --label hacktoberfest

This will then post information on the issue

Hamburger icon in dark mode

Hamburger icon in dark mode blends with the background. Icon color can be changed to white. 

Now you can copy/paste or click the link to the issue and start working and earn your hackathon T-shirt.

Have fun, and have a great Hacktoberfest.

Great, but i get an Error. PHP 7.4 is installed, also Composer. 🤔

PHP Warning:  require(/home/stephan/random-issue-picker/bin/../vendor/autoload.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/stephan/random-issue-picker/bin/rip on line 5
PHP Fatal error:  require(): Failed opening required '/home/stephan/random-issue-picker/bin/../vendor/autoload.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear:/usr/share/php') in /home/stephan/random-issue-picker/bin/rip on line 5
