๐Ÿคฏ Ultra List: One List to Rule Them All. June, '19

Alright alright alright! A little late to the party this time, I know. But better late than never, eh? ๐Ÿ˜
It has been a hell of a month. So much has happened, and I've discovered so many cool open-source projects. This fills me up with joy because I'm big on keeping the spirit of the free internet alive. In fact, Team XenoX launched another open-source product this month. Check it out in the last section. And wait until you get to the Libraries section, you're gonna love it. It's the biggest one in Ultra List yet!

Without wasting any time, let's get started!

Freebies ๐ŸŽ

Like every month, we start with the freebies first. Enjoy, and don't forget to thank the makers! They put a lot of work into these things, so the least we can do is recognize their effort. ๐Ÿ’–

Music to Rock Out to ๐ŸŽง

Good music can be a huge mood-lifter. It certainly helps me stay active, so let me share some of it with you. This is my current workout playlist.

From Team XenoX ๐Ÿ”ฅ

1. ProGram - This month, we worked on an open-source, self-hosted gallery for your favorite photos. We wanted Instagram-like aesthetic and filters, but none of the tracking and social media features. So we made ProGram. You can use it to show people a snapshot of your life, and the best part is you can host it anywhere!
If you like it, go fork it and make it your own! Here are some features I have in mind for the future:

  • Variable filter strengths
  • Video editing
  • GIF editing (cuz we all love GIFS!)
  • Stories
  • Basic editing options like brightness, sharpening, saturation, etc.

Check out Utkarsh's ProGram profile. Pretty cool, isn't it?

I wrote more about it in another post.

ProGram also did pretty well on ProductHunt the other day. You can check that out here!

2. XenoX Multiverse - It's time to take things to the next level. Starting today, this here will be the motherload of everything XenoX. All the projects and devs collaborating in XenoX will be listed here. To join us, all you need to do is this:

  • Fork the repo.
  • Add your name to the readme file.
  • Generate a pull request.

XenoX Multiverse

We're making things official with the beginning of XenoX Multiverse. Team XenoX started as my dream, just a small team of devs working on open-source projects for the fun of it. But over the months, it has grown bigger and stronger. So with this, I want to formally announce the Team XenoX open source initiative. This is where the master list of all the projects and all the devs collaborating on XenoX will live.

If you want to be an Open Source Hero too, just write your name and you're in and start contributing!

How to join the Team? ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

  1. Fork the repo.
  2. Add your name to this file.
  3. Submit a pull request.

That's it. You're all set. Someone from the team will contact you and formally welcome you to the team. Cheers!

The Team

If you like our work, join our team and change the world with us, bit by bit every day. Let's unleash the power of open-source development. ๐Ÿ’ช Team XenoX always has open doors for developers who want to do good, be it beginners or veterans. If you have some awesome open-source project ideas of your own that you'd like to collaborate on, just add your name to the list. ๐Ÿ‘†

It's me or the Github repository has a typo on it's title? It shouldn't be 'multiverse'?

Anyways, great job!
