Merry Christmas, all you lovely people.
5 days ago, I was sitting in a cafe with my teammate and we were discussing how cool Dev.to is, while I was writing an article about menubar apps. Then suddenly I asked him, "What if there was a menubar app for Dev.to?"
He said "Man! That would be super awesome!"
So I asked a few other developer friends about it and they agreed that it was a good idea. And that's how I decided that I would try my best to deliver this app within 5 days. As a Christmas present for the beautiful people of this community. 🤗
You can click a post to open it in the browser.
Or save the post in the Piggy list 🐷. It's like saving a post; the only difference is the next time you see that post in the top list, you will see a shouting piggy there, trying to convince you to read it😃. You can also remove the post from your piggy list by clicking the same piggy icon.
This app is available on all platforms.
I invite you all to contribute to this project. It's not the best code I have written but it works. Feel free to report bugs, suggest features or even work on one in your own free time.
A nifty little app that shows you the top posts on Dev.to in your menubar.
- Check the top posts from Dev.to right in your Menubar.
- Check the latest posts from top 100 tags on Dev.to.
- Save the posts in your Piggy List
🐷to read later.
- Filter the saved posts using tags.
Before running this locally you must have these installed
It's built in electron so the process to start this is really easy
npm install electron -g
That's it, you will see it running in your menubar.
Feel free to contribute to this project and treat it like your own.
Thanks Dev.to👩🏻💻👨🏻💻, for being a massively inspiring platform.
