Autofill your GitHub contribution graph

I made a GitHub Action that lets you automatically fill up your GitHub contribution graph without even needing to leave your browser.

  • Maybe most of your coding happens on another version control host, like GitLab or Bitbucket.
  • Maybe your company uses GitHub Enterprise but hasn't enabled unified contributions.
  • Maybe you're looking for a new software development job and are worried that recruiters will prejudge you by your scarce contribution graph.
  • Or maybe you have other reasons.

Whatever the case may be, this Action will get the job done. πŸ™ˆ You can set up recurring commits and/or backfill commits from the week, month, year, and more. Want to skip weekends? No problem.

It's a super simple Docker action powered by Node. You can check out the source code below!

πŸ™ˆ This action will automatically push empty commits to one of your GitHub repos.
