McHacks 2018

Project name: MLH-hooks

Objective:

The purpose of this git tool is to make organizing major hackathon events a breeze for organizers and sponsors, and also to help hackers to get the personalized help that they need easier.

Installation:

Users can either clone this repo

git clone https://github.com/juanli16/McHacks2018.git

or to simply download the file git-clone to a directory

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/juanli16/McHacks2018/master/git-mlhclone
chmod +x git-mlhclone

Next, make sure your computer already has git installed. Then, in the terminal simply run:

git mlclone <github-url>

And it will automatically download the file mlhhooks.py into your git repository directory/.git/hook/, as well as create a pre-push file. Then, after each push to the remote directory, it will run these two files. Disclaimer: Please read through what these files do at least one to avoid unwanted behavior.

What it does:

These git tool will collect the following information in your local directory in order to track your progress through the hackathon, as well as communicate mesages from organizers to hackers.

  • Programming language used
  • API used
  • Commit frequncies (from git log)

Then, on a remote server, one can visualize the all the information collected.
