I made an app: Discover how people react to you on GitHub

Hey there dev community, I always wanted to build this: an app that lists and summarizes all the reactions I received on my GitHub comments.

It took me some time (one week) but I made it! You can access it here:

You can share your score on Twitter and also get a nice badge for your GitHub readme:

Hi there πŸ‘‹

I am a Senior Web Developer at PhotoRoom.


  • TurnShift: Automate Your Team Schedule
  • Next.js News: The Next.js Monthly Newsletter
  • Source Karma: Discover how people react to you on GitHub πŸ‘
  • Tweets @vvoyer: JavaScript, React, Next.js, Building In Public

Source Karma badge for @vvo

The technical and design part were super fun, I am using:

  • Vercel
  • Next.js
  • Puppeteer (to generate social images and GitHub badges)
  • AWS RDS (PostgreSQL)
  • Craftwork (for the awesome illustrations)
  • Fathom (for stats)

Give it a try and please ask any questions you have here!


PS: Here's the launch tweet

Cool one!

Small feedback on the UI: it's hard to read, having to parse the percentages vs. the absolute number.
How about sth like that: (unicode)

πŸ‘ β–‰β–‰β–‰β–‰β–‰β–‰β–‰β–‹ 48% (905)
πŸ‘Ž ▉▉▉▍ 25% (435)

(unicode bars chars for your convenience: β–‰β–Šβ–‹β–β–Žβ–)

Hey there :)

Indeed this could definitely help! To be honest, this was a one-shot application, so not sure I'll spend more time polishing it (I already spent SO MUCH TIME lol).

But hey, it's opensource :D (unsure it's easy to run though)
