A little help will guide someone to eventually create some indistinguishable future.

Hacktoberfest 2020

A complete month of October dedicated to Open Source Development and learning more about different open-source software. We get a chance to contribute to the development of open-source software and communities.
Although it is common for the developers who continue to develop throughout the year. But the best thing is every year the freshers or the people who just started with the development gets an awesome timeline to learn and contribute.


You get a choice to pick a limited edition T-shirt or plant a tree. But that is just motivation, else you have a chance to step up in the world of innovation and development.

Why this thread

Generally, freshers have a great challenge in selecting the project. They try going with the listed projects on the Hacktoberfest website, which are really little difficult or they aren't resourceful or knowledgeable to get their PR accepted.

So We(You and me) are creating this thread and you can add the open-source projects which are accepting the PR from the people broadly classified into three parts as easy, medium and hard. You can add first-timer as well.

You can append your projects or the projects you know are accepting PRs for this Hacktoberfest.

Important Links:

Request a comment

  • Add a link to the GitHub repository or the project website
  • Add label first-timer, easy, medium, hard
  • Post the comment
  • If you are a part of a community who supports open-source, do mention them or the link to their website so that people might like to contribute and connect for their development.
  • Yay! you just helped someone to make their first contribution.

You are free to share and repost with or without any permission(s). Solely used for Open Source Development.
