Have you ever wondered whether your repository is feeling sad, angry or joyful? A good code always needs to be happy in order to run well, so the point of this project is to know which are the feelings of public repositories in github.
What it does
It analyzes the commit messages from a github public repository and evaluates the mood of the author who committed. There are five feelings in total and the score of each is presented. It also shows the commit messages with strong feelings and the contributor who wrote them. Lastly, the used languages and their amount of usage are displayed as well.
How we built it
The commits and languages are obtained from the github API, parsed and transferred to the Alchemy API from which we get how intense are the feelings of the commit. We've used AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) to deploy the application and domain.com to get the domain.
Challenges we ran into
Because of the limited requests to the Alchemy API, we had to test our app with repos with a low number of commits.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Building an app that evaluates the state of a repository in a fun way and let other developers discover what they were feeling while they were coding their awesome projects.
What we learned
The web technologies we've used and the potential of the Alchemy API.
What's next for Repos have feelings too
Analyze the feelings that each language produces to programmers in order to help others choose between them when planning a new project.
