After building a project, like an app or website, “shipping” is publishing & sharing it online.
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.
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.
Winter Hardware Wonderland #hardware-party There were complications in getting the Hack Club Bank to work and parts were slow to ship from overseas - but finally I got all the parts to work and here is the first prototype of the Triton Amphibious Rover! github.com/hackclub/winter/blob/main/thelouisgan.md The RC controlled rover features a LEGO Technic vehicle that I coupled with a motor, and for the water side of things I rigged an underwater motor and 3D printed rudder to a 25KG servo motor. All this is remotely controlled with an RC so that you can take it to explore different terrain and locations! It is also powered by a rechargeable LiPo battery and will be able to operate up to 15 minutes on a full charge in optimal conditions. Will update more photos and videos of it in action soon! Please do give feedback/suggestions as this is my first big scale project and thanks to @MelanieSmith and @belle for the support.
:shipitparrot: 2 ships, one day??? :shipitparrot:
I have made the ~dumbest~ greatest :esbuild: esbuild plugin of all time:
esbuild-plugin-bookmarklet is an esbuild plugin that lets you generate bookmarklets! Ever wanted to make :react: TSX bookmarklets? Now you can!
have fun! :eggsdee:
:shipitparrot: I'm shipping my first add-on (extension) in a long time! :shipitparrot: 2Posit: A tool to allow you to watch PlayPosit videos at 1.5x, 2x, and 10x speed! It's a very simple tool, but very handy for school assignments. addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2Posit sr.ht/~reesericci/2Posit
howdy friends! i stayed up for a couple hours last night working on my personal website (it was very spur of the moment). i’ve been designing the site for over a year now and going through different designs i settled on one simpler so i didn’t have to update it. i present version 4 of my personal site srtk.me (old metadata still but idrc). very cool thing happens at the bottom, the music thing detects what device i’m listening on (and also changes the icon). wasn’t that hard, it just required a new refresh token w a new scope from Spotify. <3
we #ship these.
#hardware-party Day 10/... Wow time flies, the 10 days are already up. AliExpress shipping :tw_face_palm:, one final thing still hasn't arrived (eta was the 17th). I've been too busy with #frc as well as preparing for a music competition recently so I couldn't work on it as much as I'd liked. Still got a ton done though. Today I worked on some software stuff, soldered some wires and getting electronics ready. I'm racing to get it complete before the 🚢 Ship Showcase!
Recently made some progress on a customizable niche feature to Telegrade, an app to help content creators grow :) (still refining it before I ship it)
HackPNW Day 2 ✅ (recap ship soon)
final package for #hardware-party arrived :D ( not really theres one more item left even though i explicity told them to ship tyem all together :tw_face_with_rolling_eyes: )
Spritely's Goblins and How They're Gonna Steal the Future arcades.agency/goblins.html NEW BLOG POST! I go into a code demo of a cool framework for capability-based asynchronous things! Spritely's Goblins is amazing. The post is the longest one yet!
:grid: I present to you all, Teacher Font Bingo, a bingo card filled with ridiculous fonts you'd see in teacher slideshows and other assignments! Go about your school day and see how many you spot! :grid:
Just shipped my new personal website out in the wild! raygoo.tech This is like my 3rd design and I'm really happy with how this turned out and yes, it is written in svelte after switching from solid-start to nextjs and now finally on sveltekit. safe to say, I really enjoy svelte. I think my design skills are improving slowly. Please let me know if there's any improvements I can make on the design aspect. Full ugly source code: github.com/provsalt/provsalt
#w-of-the-day day 6 its coming together, not long now really thought i could ship my #hardware-party site today but debugging took wayy longer than expected (still couldn't figure out the solution lol) btw i don't plan on using phantom sans and will switch the font for production
OMG IT'S LIVE! VSLACKSTATUS IS LIVE! im gonna do a formal ship later today so stay tuned i guess?
I have less than 1 day to complete this hackathon and ship this, wish me luck :peposalute: (P.S. I should launch it soon for y'all to test :thonk:)
Phew! I almost missed today because I slept for like 6 straight hours but then I got up to finish an assignment. Day 5/10 for #10-days-in-public. I didn't do much today because I was super tired, but I watched the epic airport codes video from cgp grey, and my 🚢 from a couple weeks ago worked in practice! (my ship was the rating system for the players at foosball club) you can view the current power rankings generated by the system at foosball.reeseric.ci, and the full system at observablehq.com/@lasafoosball/rankings !
I updated my ship from yesterday, a tool for rating players with observable to support
n v n teams instead of just 2v2 as well as properly saving changes with a data.json file! I also implemented it as the official ratings/rankings for the LASA Foosball Club at observablehq.com/@lasafoosball/rankings
I just finished my TrueSkill-based 2v2 game rating system! It allows you to take any 2v2 game - and create a ranking system for it, like power rankings! It even makes predictions! I'm planning to use this for the LASA foosball club, but I have to add 1v1 support first. observablehq.com/@reesericci/trueskill-2v2-rating-system
The first workshop I translated is now live! thanks @adrianoapj from Hack Club Brazil :hackclub-brasil: 🇧🇷 💖
Workshop Ship! :sprig-dino:I present my very first workshop. It's now live on workshops.hackclub.com/sprig_dodge! You should try it out and let me know how it goes. 👀 Sprig is so awesome, and I'm so happy that I can contribute. It refreshed so many JS concepts that I have forgotten. The games on the gallery are so much fun! :D Happy hacking!
Just finished an art drop of some art that I haven’t had the time to post online for a while! I’m going through the Inktober 2022 challenge, so I created Day 4 Scallop, Day 5 Flame, and Day 6 Bouquet! I also finished a collage project recently of an ouroboros 😄
Just finished schedule at 2:30am! schedule.hackaustin.net
