P2P Zero-Knowledge-Proof based Opensource Social Network - HexHoot

I find that the domain name that I purchased on an impulse, hexhoot.com, would be the ideal name for the p2p social network; both of which I described in some of my previous posts. I have been working on it during my pasttime for about a month now, and I decided to make it opensource. You can have a look at the project using the following link: https://github.com/zenineasa/hexhoot I have attempted to follow all the best development practices as much as I can. I have written tests, and, enabled continuous integration feature in GitHub to run all the tests, lint and copyright checks for the code changes that is being made. I also have captured all the foreseeable tasks in a Trello dashboard. This helps me keep track of all the bugs that I have detected and all the important tasks that need to be completed. There are quite a lot of tasks left to make this bug-free and feature-rich. I hope I will find enough time and motivation to do the same in the coming days.

Creating awesome text banners in Linux Terminal

In several opensource projects that we see around in the web, certain developers prefer to add banners like the following at the top of the source code. These do look cool, but I have often wondered why anyone would waste so much time making things like these.

As I have been surfing around the web, I happened to see Linux Terminal apps that generates these for you. I have used them to generate such banners for the BuddyGo.

Figlet:

To install Figlet, use the following command (if you have apt-get):
sudo apt-get install figlet

Toilet

To install Toilet, type the following in your linux command line:
sudo apt-get install toilet

Banner:

To install Banner, type the following in your linux command line:

sudo apt-get install sysvbanner


Now, you can also contribute to the Open Source community in style. Make contributions on GitHub, BitBucket, or whichever platform you are using.
