For 2020, I decided to opt-in and add the Hacktoberfest topic to three of my personal repositories ๐ŸŽƒ

The goal is to provide an easy-going (and hopefully sort of fun) experience for folks looking to get involved or make their first open-source contribution!

This post contains links to the projects and a short description of what they're all about.

Hopeful COVID-19 Bot

๐Ÿค– Little bot that tweets uplifting COVID-19 news

The code behind my little Twitter bot @hopefulcovidbot (I promise I will relaunch it this weekend). The best way to contribute is to add an uplifting news article for the bot to tweet out.

Seeing Sprouts

๐Ÿฅ— Browser extension that replaces images with brussels sprouts

A browser extension that replaces all images on a web page with photos of various veggies. There are step-by-step instructions in the README describing how to add support for more vegetables, nutrient-dense fruits, and other veggie-like things people enjoy!

So you want to learn GraphQL?

โœ๏ธ 'Choose Your Own Adventure' but with GraphQL

Imagine 'Choose your own adventure' but for learning GraphQL. It's super messy because I always say I'm going to work on it and never do - so any support adding or sorting resources is appreciated. The frontend section and anything marked TODO are especially lacking. Check out the Contributors Guide for more details.

Feel free to comment on this post or open an issue on the repositories if you have any questions!

Do you enjoy any of these projects or find them useful? If yes, please consider buying me a coffee so I can continue to make things like this โ˜•๏ธ
