    Buy Me A Coffee

    A tool that generates a repository which being pushed into your GitHub account creates a nice contributions calendar.


    Global installation

    Ensure you configured NPM and NodeJS not to require sudo when installing packages globally.

    $ npm i -g gh-contributions

    To start the GitHub contributions server, do:

    $ gh-contributions

    Notes for installing on Windows

    For this application to work well on Windows, Git must be installed with the option to put it in PATH enabled, like in this screenshot:

    If Git is not installed with this option selected, gh-contributions will not be able to generate the repository.

    Local installation

    $ git clone
    $ cd github-contributions
    $ npm i
    $ npm start


    The server runs on the 9000 port. Open http://localhost:9000/ in your browser.

    Check the help information on the app page (http://localhost:9000), after you start the app.

    Running Server Inside Docker Container

    You will need to use a version lower than 3.0.0 to run this in Docker. Currently this is not supported anymore.

    Build Docker container locally:

    docker build -t github-contributions .

    Start Docker container:

    docker run --rm -it -p --name=github-contributions-server github-contributions

    Open http://localhost:9000/ in your browser.

    💖 Support my projects

    I open-source almost everything I can, and I try to reply to everyone needing help using these projects. Obviously, this takes time. You can integrate and use these projects in your applications for free! You can even change the source code and redistribute (even resell it).

    However, if you get some profit from this or just want to encourage me to continue creating stuff, there are few ways you can do it:

    • Starring and sharing the projects you like 🚀

    • Buy me a book—I love books! I will remember you after years if you buy me one. 😁 📖

    • PayPal—You can make one-time donations via PayPal. I'll probably buy a coffee tea. 🍵

    • Support me on Patreon—Set up a recurring monthly donation and you will get interesting news about what I'm doing (things that I don't share with everyone).

    • Bitcoin—You can send me bitcoins at this address (or scanning the code below): 1P9BRsmazNQcuyTxEqveUsnf5CERdq35V6

    Thanks! ❤️
