Search - "repositories"
Was looking through some repositories and found this in a 2y old PR, the only PR there is and ever was in the repo..
> Best wishes for the Wednesday launch.
Steve never got an answer (on the PR at least) .. but the README links to his fork now (and no other changes have been done) .. why not just accept the PR or at least close it..7
Fun fact, I left my old job in October last year. I still have a full access to their github. With admin privileges. I could just delete all their repositories. This is too much power.8
Working on another SaaS product, and now I've run into a "fun" conundrum that is hard to determine cleanly in an automated fashion.
I'm certain it's stupid bullshit opinionated conventions like this as to why so many devs are driven to burnout and bitterness...3
Repositories with 1k+ issues and / or 50+ pull requests are basically lost causes I would think..
1. Hard to recover properly
2. The same people that let it come to that point won't be the ones to be able to recover it in the first place
'lost cause' as in the project will just slowly because worse and worse in most ways, not that it's outright useless / non-functioning / ..
Does anyone have a counter-example of such a project that did recover?
In regards to h3rp1d3v's rant
GitHub should allow server linking and social content downloading for repo authors to encourage people to still host their own repositories
This centralization is like everybody using Gmail
Some asshole deletes everything and we're all fucked15
What a fuck is wrong with GitHub? Almost every day there are a few minutes when requests take ages to load. Is Microsoft messing up their cloud?
(Everything else works correctly. E.g. devRant opened instantly, speedtest measures good network speed)7
When looking for technological answers or missing documentation, I often find my own questions and work-in-progress repositories on top of the search results. Either my problems are so unique (quite unlikely when following an official tutorial) or it's my way to describe the issues? Or maybe nobody else bothers to share their problems and knowledge publicly anymore?
hey, so i have recently started learning about node js and express based backend development.
can you suggest some good github repositories that showcase real life backend systems which i can use as inspiration to learn about the tech?
like for eg, i want to create a general case solution for authentication and profile management : a piece of db+api end points + models to :
- authenticate user : login/signup , session expire, o auth 2 based login/signup, multi account login, role based access, forgot password , reset password, otp login , etc
- authorise user : jwt token authentication, ip whitelisting, ssl pinning , cors, certificate based authentication , etc (
- manage user : update user profile, delete user, map services , subscriptions and transactions to user , dynamic meta properties ( which can be added/removed for a single user and not exactly part of main user profile) , etc
followed by deployment and the assoc concepts involved : deployment, clusters, load balancers, sharding ,... etc
these are all the buzzwords that i have heard that goes into consideration when designing a secure authentication system for a particular large scale website like linkedin or youtube. am not even sure how many of these concepts would require actual codelines and how many would require something else.
so wanted inspiration from open source content to learn about it in depth, replicate and create new better stuff if possible .
apart from that, other backend architectures like video/images storage system, or just some server for movie, social media, blog website etc would also help.2
