All aboard!

Hack Clubbers focus on one thing: shipping.

After building a project, like an app or website, “shipping” is publishing & sharing it online.

Your first ship your first day.

Students in many traditional computer science classes are lucky to make a single project. At Hack Clubs, every member makes & ships their first website their very first meeting.

Keeping your eyes on the prize.

Instead of learning programming concepts in isolation, learning by shipping means you focus on what you need to build real projects. It’s more fun & leads to better learning.

Recently shipped…


Got a 3D JS library (threlte) to work and render something after 5 hours of not cooperating. This will be part of what will probably be one of the best websites I've ever made! (future ship)

quick afternoon 🚢 I wanted to integrate my slack status with the focus modes on my phone so I wrote a quick little connector that basically just acts as a relay API for the slack status endpoint. There's a delay of about 2 seconds but it seems to reliably work!

I created a Hacker Card PCB for the Onboard you ship we ship project. It finally arrived.

Day 97 of #100-days-in-public. Today I started packaging to ship my new blot maze generator with pathing optimization I worked on a week or so ago. In my new version is a much better thumbnail in as well! One of my trail group members also submitted an onboard PR for our board prototype!

Apocalypse Handbook Information is everything in this era. Because of this, I decided to make a guide on every plant and zombie you might encounter in the streets. Every plant and zombie has a few lines of information, as well as some tips and tricks, along with even a little bit of lore to it.

small :chaos: ship! have you ever wanted to quickly and easily swap profiles with someone else on slack? no??? (i don't believe you) well now you can with Swapper! here to serve all your swapping and prankster needs. Featureing two all new modes: swapper basic where you enter a user id and it swaps profiles with them and swapper advanced (other wise know as cycle mode) where it cycles through an array of slack ids of your chosing Hope y'all enjoy and have fun next 00110000001101000010110100110001 your welcome #impostorkit

small :college-board: AP week ship!! my school lets people 🖨️ print 15 pages a month for free at the 📚 library, and that’s awesome! however, students are only able to print from 2 slow shared ⏳//|Print>! Print lets you drag & drop a file and get a short ID code to print it in one click from the shared computer. it’s nothing too special, but it’s a lot more convenient print files now at my school. feel free to try it out at the code is open source and available on github.

wadup nerdies. Look what I did He's slow but has a great personality

Mini Ship! 🚢 Using N8N workflows, auto triggered by my car driving focus (auto triggered by my car bluetooth), when I start driving, my slack status now reflects that! (i considered tying in gps, that might be going a bit too far tho /s ) EDIT/UPDATE: I am also syncing my do not disturb, and other focus mode settings to here!
@EmperorNumerius this is the first fully finished and published game i ever made and i think its really good please try it out if you could

Chela update! I've fixed a ton of bugs and added some fun features and now Chela is at version 1.0.0! If you missed the previous ship, Chela is minimal selfhostable URL shortener written in Rust. It runs in a 14Mb Docker container! I have an instance hosted at, you can try it out by going to with the user hackclub and password 4YtC3qWKBZAYmD.

:scratch: :shipitparrot: SCRATCH SHIP: SSH FOR SCRATCH!!!:scratch: :shipitparrot: The past week I've been working on getting SSH over WebSockets working to allow for building SSH apps with TurboWarp, a Scratch fork with custom extensions. It required me to write Go code compiled for WebAssembly to get a full client working, but it does work! Introducing, - building blocks for SSH apps in Scratch. It allows you to connect to any Linux server provided it has a WebSocket tunnel to SSH (see websocat/websockify) like Nest! You can execute commands, have full programming control flow with Scratch, and more! You can try this extension today at ,or by loading bundle.min.js in the package through a NPM CDN (like jsdelivr) from the "Custom Extensions" tile. Git: NPM:

Announcing Chela! I took a few hours to try and make a nice little self hosted URL shortener like I wrote it in Rust and tried to keep it small. I'm currently hosting it at I used sqids to generate ID's which leads to super awesome short URL's like! The source is available here.

:kitty-dance: 🌸 *days of service ship incoming:* :kitty-dance: 🌸 Blossom 🌸 was held in Atlanta, Georgia from March 15-16th. working closely with the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta :girl-scouts:, i had the privilege of organizing a day-long event that brought together a team of high school female mentors and dozens of eager girl scouts. beginner girl scouts embarked on exciting journeys - from crafting their own PCB :pcb: keychains that they later had manufactured through #onboard to delving into an introduction of javascript :js: to code drawings on #blot the drawing robot. every girl went home with a unique new hardware or software project that they 100% created themselves, but most importantly, the confidence needed to pursue coding further :blobheart:. we also had a brilliant dinner (with ricotta balls :blobby-doughnut:) the night before with 28+ women in technology and STEM who guided us with their stories and experiences in their fields. all the high school mentors and i were fueled for the day ahead of us by the end of the night:half-salute:. it was so motivating to see girls who had never touched code before leaving the event with the confidence that they had a place in the world of technology & finished projects that they could show off. 🔗 website: :githubparrot: github repo: 📷 day of service photos: 🥂 women in STEM dinner photos: thank you to @MariannaLudensky @NilaRam @christina695 &amp; the whole <!subteam^S06A2EGQ29M|@blossom-team> for the wonderful event we pulled off, hopefully inspiring many girls along with each other through the process.

Day 27 of #100-days-in-public. Today I spent time getting my react site to compile. Originally it was set so that you have to specify a directory it is going to run in but I managed to change that to the ./ directory so it can run in any direction. I also added some instructions for the user. Tomorrow I am going to work on getting it up on my website and shipping it. After I ship it I think I may try to incorporate an interaction library like MUI or EUI now that I am more familiar with react. On another note, I got my fudge from #10-days-in-public!

Day 26 of #100-days-in-public. I want to take a bit of a different approach on my #scrapbook today. Currently my Gemini based rug game is in a state where I am considering #shiping it but have an idea of one last feature that will require me to modify some of my code to create, and make it much more original. I think I may ship the current version tomorrow and then continue working on the last feature. Today I had a bit of a realization why react is such a good framework. Basically, my goal is to have a text box pop up when the user needs to enter their api key and not show up if it is already in the URL(see yesterdays video). The beauty of react is that I can do this very simply in one element by simply detecting if they need to enter a key, and if so returning a different piece of HTML. If they already have a key then I can simply return nothing and nothing pops up. With React I can just throw this element in anywhere and it just pops up when it needs to and disappears when it is not needed. Also, React allows me to easily modify page layout, say for example if I wanted my chat box to be below the input I can do that with swapping one line of code.

I built a student portal/site for my school! In the future, there may be AI and official district portal features thrown in as well, but at the moment it's primarily being used for my school's course selection since that's what's happening right now at school. I'm so happy to have finished building it! It's a project that I've been hoping to launch since my freshman year of high school but never had the coding expertise to execute, and now it's open-source and live for the 1,700+ students at my school to access! Using Next.js, React, and the magic of the Google Sheets API, I was able to sell the course catalog that my school has (and I now encourage you to check it out)! It's now available at :D It's been awkward walking around and seeing people compliment the project due to seeing my name in weekly announcements but I'm happy that it already has a happy user base even after being released for a short while.

🚢 ANOTHER WEBSITE SHIP 🚢 I shipped 3 new pages for my website! The first one is a photos page, it pulls automatically from my Flickr for the photos and uses static images as fallback. The second one is a blog, it uses markdown files and tailwind typography for rendering them nicely! The third one is super simple but its a stack page, It includes the tools I use. Hardware and software! The website is written in :nextjs: Next.js and :tailwind: Tailwind CSS. It's all open source! ⭐ it on GitHub and live on

Recreated the classic Chrome dino game for #sprig:

#ship I finaly finished procrastinating on making the pcb for my led cube and was able to knock it out in less than 8 hours total; particularly proud of no drc errors and a clean schematic

made a custom #arc-browser icon!

day 9 of #10-days-in-public!! today, i built an app for the student swift challenge. it's super late right now, so i'll ship it all tomorrow, but here's a look at it! :swift: 🧪

Working on my portfolio, little late to the party tho lol, planning some advanced stuff with 3d cards for projects and certification and also tags for projects , cant wait to #ship it probably in the summer along with a python script to update the projects and ceritifications and add new ones programatically with templates, hopefully finish this during this summer

🚢 WEBSITE SHIP 🚢 I have made a 📖 guestbook to my website! It allows you to read posts, login in with GitHub and post something! It uses :vercel: Vercel KV (soon migrating to upstash) and next-auth for authentication. This was inspired by @toby’s guestbook on his website! This is now live at! Leave a message today! This was built for #10-days-in-public!

These are just a few posts…
