When phones could be installed in cars, some people bought fake phones to put in their cars and pretend they could talk while driving. It was a good trick as long as no one asked to make a phone call or take a closer look.

This feels like a GitHub version of that.

 

Yeah!! This is Fun, and just experimenting with few things. Like how high can it get, and other things I have in mind :)

 

Not that I’d approve the use of such a tool, but it sounds interesting.

More than testing how far you can get it, I’d go with a “make it more realistic” approach: instead of adding trivial changes, add something that looks more “appropriate” and remove it in subsequent commits; only run at certain hours and a more limited rate; etc. That way it would make it more difficult to trace and would look more realistic.

Yeah man, some good points there. Appreciate your comment.
I could make it more realistic in the way you said, for sure. But I don't want to do that, I just want to focus on the no. of commits there, coz that's the COOOL part, DONT DO THE UNCOOL

For me it would be the other way around. The cool part would be to trick a person (in general, and an interviewer in particular) that all the commits are legit. If I see a candidate with all green on GitHub but then notice that the commits are superfluous, that candidate will look fake and I’d get a bad first impression.

That wasn't a compliment.

Common man, I'm just experimenting, I know these are not actual contributions. But you gotta know, this is COOL. Sometimes some fun is not so bad

You seem to operate under an extremely lose definition of cool.

Writing your script is something any kid learning their first few lines of code could have done - its the equivalent of

10 print "hello!" 
20 goto 10

That's not cool, that's basic.

Then running to dev.to and medium to make bragging posts about it, I'd call the definition of lame.

 
 

I don't understand why would anyone do that? I mean what's the advantage of having your repo commits increased by 12K+ "empty" contributions?

Actually, it would make it harder to track the "actual" changes and trace bugs.

 

Yeah, I'm just telling "How I did that". Not telling anyone to implement on their own repositories. I agree it would make tracking difficult.
But as a fun project, this is not so bad, Just some cool show-off stuff :P
Don't be so criticizing. I know it's not actually a useful tool, but something to play with and go WOAAAAH!! :P

 
 

Why, exactly, are you publishing a Python script to NPM? Why not just have people clone the GitHub repo? Also, what is the point of this? If anyone actually looked at your profile, they'd see this is just useless padding. Everything about this just feels wrong.

 

As I said earlier, this is not a useful tool, just something to play with, have some fun, go other-- WOAAAHHHHHH :P .
That npm thing I agree, I can remove it.

But... it's not fun, either. It's just an extremely simple script that commits a bunch of times. Are you knew to automation?

I'm sorry, but this is asinine.
