tldr; Tool that let you find latest GH issues meant for newcomers and help you start contributing to the open-source
For some time I was thinking about joining some open-source project. I believe that's is a huge opportunity to gain some experience in real-life projects.
But I was struggling in finding projects I can join. I'm a beginner so I was looking for some small less popular repos. It wasn't too easy, because I needed to browse GH typing some long weird queries, checking is there any open issue that I can handle, etc.
I created site that let you provide programming language and popularity of issue that you want to get and it presents you issues that:
- are open
- have at least one of the "newcomers welcoming" label (good first issue, up for grab, easy, etc)
- doesn't have linked pull request
- no one is assigned to them
- conversation is unlocked
- are in public repos
Front-end: react, scss
Back-end: node, express js
I built this whole thing in just 2 days so if you have any suggestions, feedback, or getting some errors please let me know in comments!
