It’s a free service. No strings attached.
"I have a repository on Github, but I keep missing important milestones, like when it reached 500 stars."
If any of these sounds like you, I have an awesome news for you! I came up with an easy, elegant and simple solution that will help you.
I have the same problems that you have. I have a decently popular repository on Github, but I always forget to check the number of stars (aka the graal for us, open source developers). I wish I could celebrate important milestones, the minute it happens, and not three months later when I realize that my repository has reached 1000 stars.
I created Egonotifier because I care about my work, and I want to know if what I do is appreciated.
It’s really simple and comes down to three steps:
That's it. Egonotifier will take care of checking the repositories you care about every day. More than every day in fact. It will make 288 checks per day, for each one of your repositories.
Because I believe that the world would be better if everyone would provide cool stuff for free. Also, reputation.
There are no hidden fees. I don't want to add another subscription to your life. I provide a simple service that I hope you'll like. In return, you could follow me on Twitter.
Egonotifier doesn't require a subscription. Therefore you can't cancel. However, you can delete your account at anytime.
But I just said... Ok. Calm down. No, there are no refunds because the service is free.
No. You can monitor any public repository on Github. Yours or someone else's.
Yeah, sure. It’s not rocket science to build something similar, but it takes time. If you really want to do it yourself, you know what? Egonotifier is actually open source, and you can run it yourself if you want. But... do you really want to?
Like with my other webapp, I don't track users. I don't use any Google services: no Google Analytics, no Google Fonts. I don't sell data. The source code is available and this is exactly this code that is actually running in production. As a matter of fact, there are no tracking scripts at all on this domain. Fuck ads, fuck tracking.
That would have given me access to your account, even with very basic permissions. I don't want to access your account.
