Hacklist

A thing I made to save some time when preparing Devpost's weekly Newsletter.

Why doesn't Devpost have a date-driven JSON API for this? No clue, but you can ask support@devpost.com if you want.

What does it do?

Returns a newsletter ready* HTML list of in-person hackathons which occur during the selected months.

You still need to edit location strings (and occasionally names) by hand, but it's good enough.

Use it
