Hacktoberfest Checker

Build Status GitHub

Useful checker web app to see how close you are to achieving the requirements for a free t-shirt as part of Hacktoberfest.

2018!

I had some grand plans for this years edition but unfortunately I've not had the time. It basically equates to using React on the front end. I did make a start, and may look to release it midway through Hacktoberfest. If you fancy hacking along with me, keep an eye on the react branch. Other than that, I've done a simple reskin and more or less kept it as it were last year (obviously updated the year and new PR requirement).

With massive thanks to Rafael Klaessen the react version is now merged and live!

I will add some tickets when I think of them of improvements etc. feel free to suggest any you can think of though too.

You may notice the domain has changed, the old heroku app is still up and I will deploy to both, but the new domain is hosted on digital ocean as they were kind enough to offer me some hosting vouchers.

Happy hacking!

Requirements

  • Node v8+

Recommended to use NVM

Running the app

  • Generate a GitHub personal access token to ensure you don't get rate limited as often.

  • Create a .env file using .env.example as an example. Or export the GitHub token as an environment variable for Node.js to use:

    • Mac/Linux: export GITHUB_TOKEN=YOUR_TOKEN
    • Windows (cmd.exe): set GITHUB_TOKEN=YOUR TOKEN
    • Windows (PowerShell): $env:GITHUB_TOKEN=YOUR TOKEN
  • $ yarn install

  • $ yarn start

  • Point browser to localhost:5000

Want to run the API server and the frontend in their own processes? Use this:

$ yarn start-frontend
$ yarn start-server

Running the app within Docker

As an alternative to the section above, you can run the app within a Docker container:

  • $ docker build -t hacktoberfest-checker .

  • $ docker run -p 5000:5000 -e "GITHUB_TOKEN=YOUR_TOKEN" hacktoberfest-checker

or use the docker-compose

  • $ docker-compose up --build
