Green dots!

Write on your GitHub profile!

Work in progress. You shouldn't use it. Also, even if it wasn't a work in progress, you shouldn't use it. Just don't use it. I'm sorry.

This takes a message, encodes it to a simple bitmap font, and generates a bunch of git commits in the past. To make your profile look like this:

Example profile

See it for realz: https://github.com/joewalnes

10 second tutorial

Use greendots.py to generate a shell script with your commits in.

$ mkdir ../my-repo
$ ./greendots.py "Yo yo!" > ../my-repo/make-my-repo.sh

You only have 6 characters that can be displayed. Make it count.

Then run that script to create a repo. This will generate lots of commits in your new repo.

$ cd ../my-repo
$ bash make-my-repo.sh

Now create your repo on github.com and push it. It'll take a minute or two, but you should now see your message in your profile at github.com/YOURUSERNAME.

Cleaning up

To remove this nonsense, just delete your repo from github.

Disclaimer

This is ridiculous. Go away.

GitHub - sorry about this. Please don't ban my account.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
