I was reading the post for the current Hackathon
and wasn't sure I would have an idea. But then yesterday, my post Dotfiles - Put your home directory under
git got a some views, and I was checking the view count during the day and wished I could have a cool graph seeing the view counts over time 🤔
Today I realized that would be a great little project to build for this hackathon!
So far, I've checked out the dev.to API docs, and it seems like I should be able to get article counts and everything from that, which is awesome!
The one drawback I noticed is that the OAuth is in private alpha right now, so I'll have to use the 'personal access' token style, which means a single instance may only be able to serve a single user, but that's ok! (I'd love an invite to the private alpha if that's an option too 😉)
What do you guys think? Would anyone want to see some fun graphs of your different dev.to articles view count over time?
I think I'm gonna give it a whirl!
