GitHub Wrapped Timelapse Video

Touching presence on web

So, yet another year has almost come to an end without leaving much to share about. Same old stories with my life, several partially completed new year resolutions bring me to a new year which may not be very exciting but I am happier because earlier I was immensely disturbed by being away from family. Amidst the satisfaction wave, I was also wondering what have I done on my original goal to keep writing blogs and to keep doing random tech demos. And I thought to reflect on some of the feedback provided on both.

On the writing part, the content might not have been up to the mark but atleast I got a habit of writing them regularly. One might argue, what’s the point of writing when it’s shit. :upside_down_face: :laughing:

On the tech demos part, I was looking at my GitHub which is where I host most of my code, including private repos. I was trying to understand what exactly have I done by looking at the GitHub contributions panel. And it looks like this:

GitHub Profile

But, I was wondering whether I can capture my issues and PR contributions. And then I discovered this amazing website called: [][].

This website looks at all my publicly available data for the past 1 year, including PR, comments, issues, commits and created this amazing video for me.

I was so surprised at this marvellous automation that generated this amazing video in runtime. This is soo much different than the GitHub Profile Trophy that generates a static image using a hosted app.

The unwrapped video is also an app but powered by a super simple tool. I am not a fan of GitHub APIs because it provides not very actionable information, but I am a fan of remotion now. Just look at this new video that is generated here:

I am thinking about some potential use-cases, and I am going to write a game with this sooner or later!
