πŸ”’ https-gate

The n-gate.com website posts hilarious weekly summaries of the top hacker news posts. The author of the site is also also notoriously against serving his site using with TLS. As a joke, I purchased the https-gate domain and proxy requests through to n-gate.

πŸ’€ Dead Wikipedia

Wikipedia loves lists and so do I. One of the most frequently updated articles is the 'Deaths in <current year/>'. This bot, using IFTTT, posts the name of the person as they are added to the list.

πŸ“ Auto CV

I was inspired by a Tweet from @TechnicallyRon wherein he made a CV (or rΓ©sumΓ©) by letting Google autocomplete finish his sentences. I took this one step further by regenerating the CV every day.

I made this website to experiment with tailwindcss. So far it has been a fantastic library and I've been able to produce some really good looking sites.

πŸ“Ή YouTubeHaiku πŸ‘‰ Twitter

Posting YouTube links to Twitter is not a fantastic experience. On mobile, Twitter clients tend to leave the Twitter app in order play the video. They'll either leave the app entirely, by sending the users to the YouTube app, or they'll show the video in browser view. This bot fixes that. This bot takes the latest hot posts from the /r/youtubehaiku subreddit and posts them to @rYouTubeHaiku as native Twitter videos. This allows users to view the videos without leaving their clients. The bot is written in NodeJS and runs in on AWS Lambda.
