Maintaining an open source gem in the Hacktoberfest

Originally Published in

Some months ago I created a little gem to quickly access to different GitHub sections from the command line. The name of my gem is vpr (view pull request).

The idea of this gem is simple, you call the vpr command + some instruction + a commit SHA and you can access to a Github section of your interest. For example, vpr visit 123abc sends you to the commit page of the selected commit.

vpr visit command

In this Hacktoberfests I decided to open some issues to add the support for bitbucket pages. It was incredible the speed that the users started to contribute and recommend things for the project, like @andrewmcodes who added a GitHub action to run standardRB in the pull requests. github

Even if this is a simple side project, I’m happy to have had the opportunity to be a maintainer this year. I hope the next year have the opportunity to host a contribution fest in my city.

All these contributions will be released to RubyGems in November, thanks to all the participants for your support. If you are interested in know more about vpr, please visit the Github repository. github
