Joplin and Hacktoberfest 2019 🎃

Hacktoberfest is back this year again for our great pleasure ^^

here are the rules to participate:

To qualify for the official limited edition Hacktoberfest shirt, you must register and make four pull requests (PRs) between October 1-31 (in any time zone). PRs can be made to any public repo on GitHub, not only the ones with issues labeled Hacktoberfest. If a maintainer reports your pull request as spam or behavior not in line with the project’s code of conduct, you will be ineligible to participate. This year, the first 50,000 participants who successfully complete the challenge will earn a T-shirt.

To participate go on log in (with you github account) and you are ready to get in.

Next, go dive into the Joplin issues list labelled “Hacktoberfest”

Start hacking, submit PR the 1rst of October, not before.

We hope you will enjoy that event this year again like the previous one :jack_o_lantern: :tada:

PS: the 4 Pull Request don’t have to be done only on Joplin project, those can be done on any FOSS projects. Even PR for issue not tagged as 'hacktoberfest'


Hi, I have some questions about this issue:

I am a Joplin heavy user and also an Front-end/UI Developer. I would like to consider making some UI modifications to HacktoberFest. How can I proceed with this issue? Do some mock-ups first and discuss before October 31st to be coded (by me and others) as soon as possible? @laurent

Hi @miglsoares, for UI changes, yes please provide a mockup first and post it on the forum so that we can discuss it. If possible it’s best to suggest small actionable changes rather than big redesigns, or to split the big redesign into smaller actionable changes.

Most likely you’ll need to implement the changes as well (well maybe someone else will agree to do them, but it’s best not to expect it).

Hi, the event will be over at the end of the day and this "campaign" was great with many contributions

  • 92 issues opened
  • 89 issues closed
  • 48 pull requests opened
  • 39 pull requests merged

we hope you enjoy this edition 2019
