Thanks for sharing your repo, Amruta! Just checking - is it okay for several folks to contribute to/open pull requests for each language-specific to-do issue, or are you accepting one PR per issue?

Thank you!

Thread Thread

Nice work. I was wondering if this extension could be customized for other text, such as quote of the day. Will it be difficult to modify the code or is the code modular?

Sorry, if this is off-topic. Rgds

Thread Thread
jayehernandez profile image
Jaye Hernandez

Sorry for the late reply, haven't been able to visit DEV in a while. Technically this is possible, code is quite modular! But for the quote of the day, since it's a language learning app, I'd like for the quotes to be solely related to that for now. :)

Alo! If you are interested in React Native or not, you are more than welcome to contribute to this new project we are doing to manage Styles.

We have different kinds of issues to work on: code, docs, tests and more.

GitHub logo rootstrap / react-native-use-styles

A classy approach to manage your react native styles.

A classy approach.

Did you ever want to organize your styles properly? This library contains an easy to use API that lets you organize your styles in a classy way.


npm install react-native-use-styles --save


Using styles

import useStyles from './my-namespaced-styles';
const component = ()  {
  const s = useStyles();
  return (
    <Text styles={s`.global .namespaced`}>
      Hello World

Note that we are classy now, and nobody would deny it. Next we'll define our .global and .namespaced style to use them in our components as we are doing in this example.

Global styles


import { GlobalStyles } from 'react-native-use-styles';

  global: 'flex:1 fx:dir:row'

We are using aliases or shortcuts to define our styles. This is equivalent to do:

import { GlobalStyles } from

Sharing Pizzly -

GitHub logo Bearer / Pizzly

The simplest, fastest way to integrate your app with an OAuth API 😋

What's the challenge during Hacktoberfest? We aim to reach 100 APIs readily available for Pizzly developers. Including new ones such as Soundcloud, Mailchimp, Pagerduty, Pipedrive, etc.

Why helping that project? Pizzly is an API Integration Manager. It helps developers use APIs at a faster path and in a much more reliable way. Consider Google Sheets API, it takes x10 fewer minutes with Pizzly than doing it on your own (source).

Where to start? 👉 Look at the issues opened specially for the event. Happy hacking!

GitHub logo Mithil467 / mitype

Typing speed test in terminal


Typing Speed Test in Terminal

Mitype is a program to test (and hence improve) your typing speed right from the ease of your terminal.

Written completely in python with no external dependencies!

Main Features

  • 🖥️ Cross-platform
  • 🎦 See your replay
  • 🐍 Supports Python 2 and 3
  • 📝 Choose custom text input
  • 🅰️ 6000 text samples
  • 🌈 Colored texts

🔧 Install

Mitype can be easily installed by:

pip install mitype

📈 Usage

Once installed, you can run it simply as:


You can also customize each run by specifying the following options as:

  • -f FILENAME, --file FILENAME Uses contents of file as sample text.
  • -d N, --difficulty N N can be in range [1, 5] with 1 being the easiest. This decides the length of the text.
  • -i ID, --id ID ID can be in range [1, 6000].

You can quit mitype anytime by pressing the ESC

I would really love to have your contributions to it!
It is really easy to work with, and just requires knowledge of python and no extra modules. All modules used are in-built. I have set up some issues that you can help me with! And I plan to add more if things go well :)

Do try it out and let me know feedback and new feature ideas! ✌️

GitHub release Website Chat on Discord Docs

Built with empathy, not just ❤︎

Appsmith is a fast, easy, and secure way to build any custom internal tools. Here's how you build something:

  1. Create a page using pre-built UI components like table, charts, map viewers and forms.
  2. Connect the UI components to any REST API or databases like MySQL, Postgres, and MongoDB. Write any logic in JS.
  3. Deploy the interal tool to a custom URL and invite users to sign in with their Google acounts.

Do all this without depending on multiple UI libraries, coding authentication logic or writing any DB or API integrations. See the looped gif below to see how something gets built on Appsmith. It might remind you of Visual Basic.

My goal is to start a community-driven language-learning platform that gives it's users and contributors a way to influence its future and adapt it to special requirements.

To achieve that, I release all source code under the AGPLv3 free software license, which guarantees end users the freedom to run, study, share, and modify the software.

In addition to licensing the software under a free software license, the course content will be decoupled from the software itself, and the development of AGPLv3 or public domain course content will be encouraged. This should allow course developers to retain the freedom to choose how they use their work.

LibreAV is an attempt to detect malwares on android devices by utilizing machine learning approach.


  • Real time scanning
  • On device inference
  • Lightweight
  • 100% free and no ads

How it works?

LibreAV uses permissions and intent-filters to detect malicious apps. While scanning, it loads the machine learning model and extracts permissions and intents from the installed applications on the user's device. These extracted features are then fed to the machine learning model in the form of a vector. The machine learning model returns a prediction score between 0 and 1 that denote the degree of maliciousness of the scanned application. We use this score to classify the scanned app into one of the following categories:

  1. Goodware: The prediction score is less than 0.5
  2. Risky: Prediction score between 0.5 and 0.75
  3. Malware: Prediction score is greater than 0.75
  4. Unknown…

About The Project

In 2020 the world changed when everyone become stuck in their homes, looking for creative outlets to share their art, skills and themselves from inside their bedroom.

This created an explosion of live streaming on Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Instagram, and Twitch. These services provided everything they needed, an easy way to live stream to the world, and a chat for users to be a part of their community.

But in a world where many were previously finding ways to rely on the big internet service companies less, the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic made everyone run right back…

Our tech stack:

  • Golang backend
  • Preact frontend
  • HLS video

Some features we're starting on just now:

Our docs are available at

We pride ourselves on being super easy to get up and running, so if you want to help out on any features or fixes you can do it without a lot of hassle.

Hi! for those of you who are looking for a Kotlin project to help in the next Hacktoberfest, I'm sharing with you the tasks you can pick in the Hexagon Toolkit project (you can find more information about the project on the Web page, GitHub organization and the main repository).

If you find the project interesting, you can check the tasks labeled with hacktoberfest in the following boards:

  • Toolkit board: for features and improvements on any toolkit module (like the HTTP server or Template processors).
  • Organization board: for side tasks as the Benchmark and examples.

Once you have found an appealing task, you can read the Contributing Guide with all the details on how to proceed to start working on it. If you would like to take a task, and you find the information incomplete, do not hesitate to contact me for any detail you want or need.

Thanks... And happy coding!!!

What is Hexagon

Hexagon is a microservices' toolkit (not a framework) written in Kotlin. Its purpose is to ease the building of server applications (Web applications, APIs or queue consumers) that run inside a cloud platform.

The Hexagon Toolkit provides several libraries to build server applications. These libraries provide single standalone features and are referred to as "Ports".

The main ports are:

  • The HTTP server: supports HTTPS, HTTP/2, mutual TLS, static files (serve and upload), forms processing, cookies, sessions, CORS and more.
  • The HTTP client: which supports mutual TLS, HTTP/2 and cookies among other things.

Each of these features or ports may have different implementations called "Adapters".

Hexagon is designed to fit in applications that conform to the Hexagonal Architecture (also called Clean Architecture or Ports and Adapters Architecture)…

First, clone the repository:

Then go into it and install all dependencies:

You should see two version numbers appear. Then run the build script:

npm run-script build

It'll build you the runnable source files (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) in a directory called www. After that you can build the project into an Android package (APK) file:

🚀 Getting started

There are a number of way to use mdx-embed. Head over to the docs site for more information on the current packages:

📦 npm packages

🕺 Core Team

If you're using mdx-embed in your project we'd love to hear from you!

❤️ Contributors

Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far!

Hey all, I have a little MDX related project called MDX Embed, repo here: mdx-embed

We're actively seeking contributors to help with React Unit tests and Cypress integration tests:

If you're interested in contributing we've created an Umbrella Issue on the repo which should contain everything you need to get started...

...and for everything else, feel free to find me on twitter @pauliescanlon

Testing Umbrella Issue - Hacktoberfest #71

⛱️ Testing Umbrella Issue - Hacktoberfest

The time is right. We're now on to the last leg of the migration and something i never got round to in the old repo was adding a test suite.


Tasks for us to complete before others can get involved are:

🚀 Getting Started

If you're interested in helping out with tests and taking part in Hacktoberfest please comment below and let us know if it's the unit or integration test you'd like to tackle.

We'll then assign your username/name to the issue and add you next to the component in the list below to try and avoid duplication.

🤝 Contributing

Before you start have a read of:

(TODO) video for how to get started.

🎁 As a thank you

We know it's not much but if you would like to contribute and your PR is successfully merged we'll send you out a super cool limited edition MDX Embed sticker. If you're comfortable sharing your address you can email me

🧪 The two tests

There's two different types of tests we'd like contributors to focus on, they are at the moment fairly simple tests. There is every chance contributors with more expertise in testing will advise on what should or shouldn't be tested.

I'm open to suggestions but at the very least each component will have the below which will get us to a stable 1.0.0 release

  • Unit test (Testing Library / React)
  • Integration test (Cypress)


There's an issue for each component and named appropriately: e.g: Please check the issues in GitHub to see which tests are currently open or in progress

  • codepen-unit-test
  • codepen-integration-test

Each issue will be assigned the "Hacktoberfest" and perhaps the "good first issue" label?

# Acceptance Criteria

Unit Test

Unit tests are co-located e.g: packages/mdx-embed/src/components/codepen.test.tsx ... and here's a brief explanation of how we're writing unit tests

  • It will have a data-testid that is the name of the component e.g: data-testid="codepen" - observe directory name for clues on what the data-testid should be
  • It will have a data-testid attribute on the top level DOM node or iframe
  • it will have at least one test for it renders the component
  • It will have the correct file extension for the test file: e.g .test.tsx

Integration Test

Integration tests are located at cypress/integration/codepen.spec.js ... and here's a brief explanation about how we're currently writing integration tests

  • it will have at least one test which asserts if embed providers specific DOM are not undefined
  • It will have the correct file extension for the test file: e.g .spec.js
