Broccoli, bots, and brains! The 3 projects where I added the Hacktoberfest topic.

Carolyn Stransky

For 2020, I decided to opt-in and add the Hacktoberfest topic to three of my personal repositories ๐ŸŽƒ

The goal is to provide an easy-going (and hopefully sort of fun) experience for folks looking to get involved or make their first open-source contribution!

This post contains links to the projects and a short description of what they're all about.

Hopeful COVID-19 Bot

The code behind my little Twitter bot @hopefulcovidbot (I promise I will relaunch it this weekend). The best way to contribute is to add an uplifting news article for the bot to tweet out.

Seeing Sprouts

A browser extension that replaces all images on a web page with photos of various veggies. There are step-by-step instructions in the README describing how to add support for more vegetables, nutrient-dense fruits, and other veggie-like things people enjoy!

So you want to learn GraphQL?

Imagine 'Choose your own adventure' but for learning GraphQL. It's super messy because I always say I'm going to work on it and never do - so any support adding or sorting resources is appreciated. The frontend section and anything marked TODO are especially lacking. Check out the Contributors Guide for more details.
