Austin Tech List (Work in Progress)

Project to create a list of places in Austin that hire developers or places that support developers working remotely from Austin. Created by Austin Code Mentorship.


Install by running npm install austin-tech-list and import it...

import austinTechList from 'austin-tech-list'
console.log(austinTechList) // [{}...]

...or require it.

var austinTechList = require('austin-tech-list')
console.log(austinTechList) // [{}...]

It can also be referenced directly using a service such as unpkg...

<script src=""></script>
  console.log(austinTechList) // [{}...]

Suggesting an addition

If there's a company you'd like added to the list, you can submit a suggestion here.


This project was designed to help new developers get started with their first open source contribution. We welcome pull requests from newbies! If you can think of ways to make the experience easier for developers submit an issue.

Remember, there's nothing to fear about submitting a pull request - everything gets linted, tested, and reviewed before getting added to the master branch.

List Requirements

There are a few things we test for before we accept changes to the list:

  • Objects must have name, homepage, careers, address, and plusCode keys. No more and no less than those keys.

  • Entries must be in alphabetical order. This includes things like "The" and "A" since we're just testing with the plain old JavaScript Array.sort() method.

  • Addresses must be Remote or end with Austin, TX \d{5} where \d{5} is the five digit ZIP code. If you copy the address from Google Maps, it should be in this format.

  • Plus codes must be in the format XXXX-XX Austin, Texas where the Xs are the unique plus code. If you copy the plus code from Google Maps, it should be in this format.

  • URLs must begin with http:// or https://. If you copy the URL from your browser, it should be in this format.

Contribution Dependencies

You'll need a few things before submitting a pull request.

  1. git is a version management program that allows people to work collaboratively on software - it keeps track of changes. You'll need to install it on your computer if it's not installed.
  2. Github is cloud storage for git projects and a UI for collaborative development. You'll need an account if you don't have one already.
  3. Node is a JavaScript runtime. You don't need to know JavaScript, we just use it to run maintenance tasks. You'll need to install it on your computer if it's not installed.
  4. npm is a package manager for node. It'll download the libraries we use to run our maintenance tasks. You'll need to install it on your computer if it's not installed.


You'll likely being using a command-line interface to run these commands. This could be Terminal for Mac/Linux, Command Prompt for Windows, or your text editor's build-in terminal if it has one.

  1. Use Github to fork the project. 1

  2. Clone the fork to your computer. 2

  3. Navigate into the project (ex: cd austin-tech-list).

  4. Run the command npm install to install project dependencies.

  5. Add an entry to the list in index.js:

      // The previous entry

      name: 'Company Name',
      homepage: '',
      careers: '',
      address: '123 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701',
      plusCode: '1234+4H Austin, Texas',

      // The next entry
  1. Run the command npm run pre-commit when you're done with your changes. This will change the code to make it conform to our style standards and run tests to make sure everything works as expected. If you get errors here, it probably means a test failed (and your changes need to be tweaked).

  2. Stage and commit your changes. 3

  3. Push your changes from the clone to your fork. 4

  4. Use Github to submit a pull request from your fork to the main project. 5

Example Steps

This is an example and may differ from your own experience. Read about and understand the concepts so that if you run into an error, you'll be better able to discern what the problem is.

  1. Use Github to fork the repo.

  2. git clone[YOUR_USERNAME]/austin-tech-list.git

  3. cd austin-tech-list

  4. npm install

  5. Use your text editor to change index.js.

  6. npm run pre-commit

  7. git add index.js; git commit -m "Added ExampleCo to list"

  8. git push origin master

  9. Use Github to submit a PR.
