How to find repos to contribute to during Hacktoberfest

I really wanted to be part of Hacktoberfest celebration. Find a repo, understanding the issue and create a pull request that will be merged...

But, it's not so easy when so many people want to do this as well.

So let me share with you a quick tip how to find easily repos that you can contribute to during Hacktoberfest.

In github there is an option for advanced search
I'm using the following filters:

  • With the labels - hacktoberfest (well, duh)
  • Written language - javascript (but it's really up to you)
  • In the state - open
  • With this many comments - 0 (so no one started to work on them)
  • With this many stars - > 15 (it's legit repo)

Here's a search link

Good luck...
