Sync External Contributions
This script is used to read all your contributions you've done on local repositories with git-standup and create a GitHub contribution activity for every commits that you're the author.
It does not copy content of the commit, to respect NDA and privacy it only list all commits SHA you've made and write it to a file. This is totally safe.
I have done this script because some contracts, projects, or business were not on GitHub as source control. I found it odd that some weeks or months were missing in my GitHub contributions activity as if I was not there.
Should external contributions belong there?
Personally I'm not sure, but since private contributions can be showed and some used this to show work activity, why not.
Will I use this?
I'm not sure either, but if it can help someone I'll be happy.
Did I've some fun doing this?
npm install -g sync-external-contributions
First, you'll need a git repository where the contributions will be synced.
Create it where you want it (ex:
git init inside and push your initial commit with an empty file named
