GitHub Gardener

A web app / bot that commits code to your GitHub repo in order to make your contribution history green.

Show some love on Product Hunt! <3

See the whole story from idea conception to launch on a single twitter thread!

Permissions

For this project to work, I needed to access the 'repo' scope of the GitHub API permissions. That means read and write permissions for public repositories.

I don't abuse any of these permissions, I don't even store your email. All I do is store your GitHub username because I have to.

Web flow

When you sign up, GitHub Gardener creates new public repo for you with a README.md file.

I create a new User model consisting of you github username, the authentication token the GitHub API sends back to me and the name of the new repo.

Then, everyday, GitHub Gardener loops through the users and commits a 'change' to the README.md file a random number of times for every user. (0-7 times)

That's it.

Delete account / Unsubscribe

You can also always unsubscribe. Go to githubgardener.xyz, click Sign Up with GitHub and then on the /success page click on the 'Delete my GitHub Gardener account' button.

Progress

You can view the whole progress of GitHub Gardener from idea inception to Product Hunt launch on this thread. (https://twitter.com/alexsideris_/status/993523095708332032). If there is anything new, I will post it there.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
