I have just registered for Hacktoberfest 2020. This will be my 3rd year doing it. 4 Pull Requests are required to fulfill the requirements. I'm going to be focusing on 3 areas during October.

First is Meteor.js. I want to primarily tackle two of the following:

  1. insertMany support for Mongo packages. This has been bugging me for quiet a while, but I think it is only now that I can try to tackle it.
  2. Additional MongoDB commands integration
  3. Upgrade to Node.js v14
  4. Accounts packages improvements. This will probably be a few PRs. First will be modernization. Another one is adding deletion functionality - this means accounting for delete calls from social media providers like Facebook and adding delete link to authentication e-mail. This will only trigger if a delete function is provided so that the app can account for it. This goes also hand in hand with increased GDPR support.

Second area of focus for me will be in Meteor Community Packages. I don't have any specific points here like for Meteor, but I want to focus on standardization of the packages and wiring them up to CI as much as I can. Few of the packages have an issue or two that can be done relatively quickly, which I will if no one takes after the first week of Hacktoberfest (so that new comers have a chance).

Lastly I want to do some work on Literary Universe which will culminate with upgraded story editor and I will hopefully finish in time to do a showcase video for Meteor Impact. Since this is not a public project it will not count towards Hacktoberfest in anything but spirit.

What are your plans for Hacktoberfest 2020?
