Show IH: I made an app that collects funny commit messages 😂

Hey IH!

Commits.lol is a small service that collects funny commit messages from Github.

As makers, we all have our moments. Whether it be joy (seeing your app live), frustration (fixing a bug in production) or anything else!

I wanted to build something to capture that emotion, and I figured what better way to do that than by looking at commit messages!

Tell me what you think!

    „Fix this f#%@ing f#%@ for f#%@s sake“

    This is hilarious and nice front-end. How did you make the nice animations to rotate the emojis, etc.?

      So I just used some CSS transforms on the emojis. On hover, I set each emoji to rotate at different angles.

    Love the site design. It's really fun and unique, such a nice change from all the other cookie cutter sites you see these days. 👏👏👏

    Oh my. So many "whoops remove token" commits here. I wonder if Github has any automatic detection of if you mistakenly commit your token? Because I bet there are many bots sniffing for those tokens 😄

    Note: So if you commit and push your token, there's a big chance it got into wrong hands. So you should immediately invalidate the token, not just force-push-remove the commit.

    Love the site though, great idea!

      Hey Thanks! Appreciate it!

      Not sure that Github has that kind of auto-detect functionality for tokens though - would be a pretty handy feature!

    Oh dear 😂 Don't look at our repos will you. Rich pickings I suspect.
    Man I hate writing commit messages.

    Blah, stuff, some things, I made changes - all perfectly acceptable!
