Finding Github "Help Wanted" Issues

twitter logo github logo Updated on ・1 min read

Always searching the same handful of Github organizations looking for "Help Wanted" issues? Tired of finding out everything in the repository that needs help is in a language you can't hack-on confidently? Let's build a custom RSS feed with Github Actions to prowl for issues in known organizations and repos that host our languages.

  • Register for Github Actions if you haven't already.
  • Add a Github Actions secret called "TOKEN" with a personal access token scoped to write repo data
  • Fork this project
  • Make sure that Github Pages are enabled for your fork
  • You'll probably want to tweak the LANGUAGES and ORGS values at the top of v3-feed.sh, but maybe you're a bash/python/go hobbyist yourself.
  • After the first run completes you should have an RSS feed of interesting puzzles at https://$YOUR_GITHUB_NAME.github.io/rss/feed.xml

I'd love to know if this worked-out for anyone. Issues are enabled on the repo and I'd be tickled for a PR to fix any of the obvious problems.
