My contributions in this year 2020 Hacktoberfest
By Dawntraoz Last updated on Friday, 9 October 2020
This week has been a blast, I literally spent 5 days without stopping programming and I had a great time (but I don't recommend it as a lifestyle, for a hackathon is worth xD).
As I've already finished 4 PRs which is the star number of this hackathon (I'm looking forward to planting my tree 😍), I wanted to tell you what I've been doing.
Since I've been contributing little, I wanted to start with technologies that were more familiar to me, so I only had to fight with forks and git origins. That's why I chose to create a feature in https://stylestage.dev/ as my first PR and put into practice my beloved SASS to generate the CSS that was require.
If you still haven't finished your PRs or you want to keep contributing I absolutely recommend you to participate in this project, it's amazing!
And once it is merge you can see your result live! 😍
Then, searching among projects with the Hacktoberfest2020 tag, I found one where they were looking to migrate their CSS to LESS with the BEM methodology for their class nomenclature. As I really liked the initiative, I helped them with it. It allowed me to get to know Apache Cordova a bit, since I had never used it before.
Once I had gained confidence with the way of working in open source I decided to try out projects I already knew before.
As a huge fan of the work that FrontEndFoxes does for the community of FrontEnd developer women, I decided to contribute to their new website by adding the unit tests setup, first test cases and the CI workflow that won the Runner-Up award at GitHub Actions Hackathon (which I'm very proud of and I was looking forward to implementing it in a real project).
Finally, as expected, I couldn't leave out my dear NuxtJS, so I caught up to see if they needed anything. I was told I could help migrate the documentation from the http module to the new Docs theme and here it is 👁.
These weeks I will continue to contribute to the wonderful world of open source and I hope to see you for some PR. May the good practices be with you!
