Hi Ben! I'm glad that you liked the repo! :)

I sometimes post small articles here in dev.to that may be related to algorithms. I mean something like dev.to/trekhleb/permutationscombin... or dev.to/trekhleb/dynamic-programmin.... But I'm not sure if this is something you meant by "canonical"?


Sorry I could have been much more clear.

The technical articles on the site are great because each one is told just the way the author wanted, they have a personal touch and are the core of the whole platform.

But additionally, I feel like we could host more stuff that acts as the one true "source of truth" on a type of issue, which is community-driven. Projects like yours are the essence of how great this kind of thing can be.

The feature I'd be describing is a way for the pages in your project and other ones to be discoverable and readable and observes the GitHub project as the source for the whole thing.

Here's a project which sort of accomplishes that I like: devhints.io/

Agree, the devhints.io is a great example!

I think it might be a good idea to have such community driven GitHub repo as a "source of truth" for different useful information. Especially when dev.to is going open-source! This way dev.to could have algorithms related repo that might have been managed by community.

This is actually what happens now in JS Algorithms repository. People are creating pull requests and changing things there. But yes it is only about algorithms there.
