Kick off Hacktoberfest ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘Œ with the next best thing DEVs will โค๏ธ

#hacktoberfest

This tag is for content related to Hacktoberfest 2020. Open source maintainers can use this tag on posts about their project seeking contributions (we recommend adding #contributorswanted also). Contributors can tag posts documenting their Hacktoberfest journey and progress. NOTE: please read the rules section for necessary details and updates on participating this year.

Are you looking to contribute to an open source project in this Hacktoberfest ๐Ÿ’œ? or want to get started with latest technologies like VueJS & NuxtJS ๐Ÿ”ฅ?

We're developing hoppscotch.io, a web open source API request builder, and would love to count you as a contributor to improve our components & applications ๐Ÿ™

Don't forget to star the project.

GitHub logo hoppscotch / hoppscotch

๐Ÿ‘ฝ Open source API development ecosystem https://hoppscotch.io

3.7k+ stars on GitHub โ€ข #2 product of the day on Product Hunt โ€ข featured in Indie Hackers, Hacker news, Hacker noon, YouTube & open source dev podcast etc

Get started ๐Ÿš€

As the projectโ€™s size grew quite a bit the past couple of weeks, you might ask yourself, where to get started ๐Ÿค”?

Meet the Technology Stack:

  1. HTML + CSS + JavaScript - for magic โœจ
  2. NuxtJS: The Vue.js Framework - for wonder ๐ŸŒˆ

For the purpose of this first experience, I have selected the following 5 features which have to be implemented in our "core" functionalities with Nuxt.js (Vue.js).

Check out the issues tab for more ๐Ÿ˜‹ or alternatively you can create new features (and prolly PRs ๐Ÿ˜‰) or optimize any existing functions/routines.

Cherry on the cake ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŽ‚

Beside unlocking some karma points, you know what would be cool with your contributions ๐Ÿค”? All the improvements you'll submit will not only have effect to the components, but also they'll have an impact on open source dev community & be included in our live platform used by 2k+ users. Kind of cool to know that something you would develop will for sure be available in an online live application! isnโ€™t it?

Hacktoberfest ๐Ÿ™

Support open source and earn a limited edition T-shirt! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Rules:
To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests (PRs) between October 1-31 (in any time zone). PRs can be made to any public repo on GitHub, not only the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. This year, the first 50,000 participants who successfully complete the challenge will earn a T-shirt.

Wow, I just went through fetcher. That's a cool thing ๐Ÿ”ฅ. Hope you could share your insights and experience on developing it. And hopefully add/port similar features to Postwoman ๐ŸŽ‰

I'm a new developer. Can you explain what api or your program does?

Hi friend,

Postwoman is not an API provider. It's a cross-platform, cross-device supported testing tool for API development. It's lightweight, fast and open sourced. It's a progressive web app with tons of features ๐ŸŽ‰
