Okay, Thursday project. It’s my day off this week, what can I do.
I’m still on this Vue.js kick, so while studying Components, I built myself a little app.
GalaxyQuest is a very simple app, again. It hooks into the GitHub API and asks for a list of a particular user’s starred repositories. It then makes a list out of those and displays them.
The “killer feature” here is that the list can be searched fuzzily - similar to how CtrlP works for vim, or Ctrl+T works in Sublime Text and Atom. This is achieved by using fuse.js with a minimal custom config.
The Road Ahead
There’s tons of room for improvement!
For one, all the logic is currently in the Vue.js components, and that seems very messy to me. I should totally refactor the app, move logic into service objects, and throw some sense into the CSS for the components.
There’s currently also a limit of 100 stars per user. GitHub API pages it’s responses, and I ran out of time to make/use a proper API client and pull down all the starred repos.
