I'll do this again. A couple of friends and I are building a new programming language. Contributions will be appreciated.

I guess I'll kick this off. I have a little library called digitalocean-js that makes working with the DigitalOcean API easy. It's written in TypeScript. I'm always wanting it to improve, I have a couple issues that I specifically want to change, but I'm always welcoming pull requests that include other ways to make it better, even if it's documentation!

I've been looking for some stuff that's focused on Digital Ocean, I feel they don't get enough love πŸ˜‚

I'll definitely be using this in the future.

Work on sharding development for Ethereum with Rust!
Ethereum is a blockchain that can be used for virtually any activity that has transactions or agreements, or economic or governance aspects. Sharding aims to increase the scalability of Ethereum quadratically, then exponentially.

I'm creating a PHP/JS application that checks your Spotify Playlist for tracks that are not available in this form anymore but actually still are (the original album got removed, but a best of album with the same track is still available).

The software can already scan for the tracks, and create a new playlist with the replacement tracks.


  1. the UI is basically non-existent at this point,
  2. I wanted to implement a NONCE but haven't had the time yet to do so and
  3. there sure are plenty of other things worth improving

So I'd greatly appreciate your help over at GitHub. I wrote about what I learned while creating the software so far in a blog post, but I'd happily add "Learning about the values of OSS" to the list.

I haven't dug into the code for your repo at all yet, but would it be overly difficult to do something like this with Soundcloud? I personally have used Soundcloud and Spotify in tandem for various artists or sub-genres I'm a fan of, but a lot of Soundcloud music can vanish from the account you originally found it on so it's upsetting when you look for a song you know you had saved at some point, but it's no longer in your playlist.

Here's how my software works:

  1. The user logs in to Spotify via my app
  2. The user selects a playlist displayed (fetched with the spotify API)
  3. The software looks for any "local tracks" in that playlist (those are tracks that are not available any more, just a different name) - the tracklist is fetched using the Spotify API
  4. The software searches via the Spotify API for songs that match the pattern "artist title" and displays those.
  5. The user selects the songs that shall replace the unavailable songs
  6. The software creates a new playlist and adds the replacement songs (all done via the Spotify API)

So as you can see, the software heavily relies on the Spotify API. If the soundcloud API offers the same features AND a test run where you take one of the greyed out/unavailable songs and search for it with the soundcloud search actually shows usable results then: yes a similar software for soundcloud can be created.

I'm honestly not too sure how fleshed out the SoundCloud API is, but I'll take a look and see how difficult it would be to add this. Thanks for the awesome reply 😊

Hi Community!
I am the maintainer of InvoicePlane, a self-hosted open source application for managing quotes, invoices, clients and payments. We focus our application on freelancers and small companies.
We currently officially incorporated FusionInvoice as the new major version InvoicePlane 2.

We currently need help with porting features from our old version to the new one which is based on Laravel 5.5 and currently Bootstap 3 with Admin LTE.

You can find more information in our latest news post or join our Slack Chat.

Thank you very much for reading! :)

Okay, here goes:

I'm the maintainer of a utility and library for modifying tree-like structures hierarchically. Primarily this started out as a way to modify configuration files in directories for different target system, but is now also a js/ts-library for tree modification and manipulation. Head over to the GitHub repository for details.


Kind regards

I open sourced ProppyJS few weeks ago. It enables you to functionally compose your props and then connect it to React or Vue.js, leaving your components layer always stateless.

Could use some help here: :)

So I have tried to bring the familiarity of Laravel's IoC (illuminate/container) to typescript, and for the most part it is working fine. I do not know if it's good or bad, I didn't much time to tinker around. Feel free to help me completely port most of the feature of illuminate/container to typescript.

Repo: typescript-container

PS: forgive my stupid codes.

  • All features of HAProxy are inherited, 100% compatible with HAProxy
  • Powerful dynamic cache ability: based on HTTP method, URI, path, query, header, cookies, HTTP request or response contents, environment variables, server state, SSL version, SNI, connection rate, number, byte, etc
  • Extremely fast
  • Cache purging
  • Cache stats
  • Cache management
  • HTTPS supports on both frontend and backend
  • HTTP compression
  • HTTP/2
  • HTTP rewriting and redirection

I welcome any contributors for ideas, bugs reports, PRs:

This isn't exactly a project, but I'm writing a set of bash/zsh scripts for an Ubuntu-Linux system to set up a decent development environment. Do add some useful CLI tools or apps to the README and I will try to add scripts for them/ merge your PRs!
Here's the repository link
Goal(kind of?) is to set up most of the stuff mentioned in this article

title: [Feature request] Filter doctoc by number of lines in a file
published: true
description: Don't add a ToC to files that are less than 30 lines by default.

tags: doctoc, Javascript

It would be great if there are any Javascript devs who want to fix issues in this repo such as this one that I just filed!

Filter doctoc, by default, to not add a ToC to files that are below 30 lines (20 lines would fit on a page on most screens); scrolling 10 lines is just about as easy as clicking on a link, then add a flag to change this number of lines.

Also if there are any devs interested in working on building Ethereum 2.0, there is lots to do, e.g. building a bintrie for state storage. "Ethereum is a decentralized, self-contained economy for transactional computation and related data."
