Show HN: Experimental mechanic for GitHub repos to boost open-source development


This repo is a demo/playground for an experimental mechanic for GitHub repositories, which permits mission backers to be a noticeable segment of the event process/neighborhood and be immortalized within the mission history along with the developers.

  • When the pay button is pushed and a fee is made (as a GitHub particular person or anonymously), it triggers a series of actions as per the following rules:
    • substitute the “reinforce anguish” comment with the backer username (if not anonymous)
      • the location depends on the total quantity donated by the backer on the anguish
      • if the total backer-anguish quantity is >=0.001 BTC, then the backer’s avatar is also added (the avatar sizes differ reckoning on the volume)
    • put up a “@username (or anonymous) donated ฿” comment on the anguish if the donation quantity is >=0.0005 BTC. The templates, report sets and the preference of ฿ symbols differ reckoning on the volume. The right quantity isn’t printed to not anguish the privateness.
    • add “priority” fee to the anguish, if the total quantity donated by all backers on the anguish is >=0.001 BTC
    • region off the actions of the regular Crimson BTC – extensive donation good judgment of the “Become a backer” button on Crimson BTC web page and Crimson BTC repos (along with this one)
