What is this?

I built an app called Gitalytics, which will show summarized GitHub Activities.

I got inspired from Spotify Year in Review feature and thought that developers should also see their GitHub Year in Review, a.k.a #2020Coded.

How I built it

I have created an NX workspace using angular-nest preset. For more on code visit my article on dev.to: Basic Structure Done with Nx and Deployed on DigitalOcean App Platform

How does it look?

Background

I got inspired from Spotify Year in Review feature and thought that developers should also see their 'Github Year in Review'.

How I am going to build it

This is mostly going to be Angular app. I am planning to use:

  1. Angular Material for UI
  2. ng2-charts for charts
  3. Bootstrap for layout
  4. html2canvas for exporting images

With above, I will also need below thigs, which are new for me:

  1. Github APIs
  2. Digital Ocean Platform

Additional Resources/Info

As I keep making progress, I will keep writing more articles in this series.

This looks interesting and like something I would use. I'll keep checking back as you move forward with development. I've created my entry for the #doHackathon too. I see you're a frontend dev and I'd really appreciate it if you get a few moments to check out my app and let me know what you think. Good luck in the challenge.

I will have an in-depth look into it soon. But briefly, it's looking good.

I like this statement:

Every year I get the same request from my manager: Send me a list of your accomplishments for the year.

Congratulations for the app...
