Repokémon

Showcase of GitHub repos with Pokémon names.

👉👉👉 Read Story: Building Repokémon 👈👈👈

Screenshot

How?

  1. Scrape a list of all pokémons.
  2. Use GitHub API and search for every pokémon name.
  3. Get a matching repository name with highest number of stars.
  4. 💥💥💥

Criteria

The showcase only list repositories with these criteria:

  • Repository name matches exactly the same as Pokémon name.
    • name/pikachu
    • name/mr-mime
    • name/mr_mime
    • ⛔️ name/pikachu-awesome
    • ⛔️ name/pikachuuuu
  • Most stars. If there are few repositories with the same name, the one with most stars will be listed.
  • Contains description, because... it has to be descriptive.
  • Contains lang, the repository language determined by GitHub.

Dev

  • npm i - install dependencies
  • npm run pokemon - grab the pokémons
  • npm run repokemon - grab the Github repos
    • Copy config.sample.json to config.json, configure it with client_id and client_secret from GitHub
    • Takes about 30 minutes to prevent API rate limit issues
  • npm run gemoji - replace emoji names like :smile: to 😄
  • npm run min-repokemon - generate a minified version of data/repokemon.json, containing only the data that is rendered
  • npm run stats - show stats of the collected data
  • npm run images - download all pokémon images to data/images (not included in this repo)
  • npm run sprite - generate a sprite image data/pokemon-*.jpg (compressed with TinyJPG API)
  • npm run css-min - compress pokemon.css to smaller pokemon.min.css
  • npm start - start a local server at localhost:1337
