Interesting project! What makes this better than profiles on GitHub? What was missing on Github that you believe is better with this solution?

@syswarren According to OP on HN: The main drive for this app are: - I can't see all your code contributions since the beginning of time at a glance. - For each of your pinned repos, I can't tell at the first glance whether you just fixed a typo or you wrote 90% of it.

@syswarren @aditianhacker There's more to why they're building this in their README.md on their GitHub repo.

How is this different than GitHub user profiles and why should we use it?

Pros:

Nice and simple UI

Cons:

Overload at this stage; Same information as that of GitHub profiles

So I looked through it a bit and I think the really cool part is the stab at calculating contribution score. From @aditianhacker's answer (see: https://www.producthunt.com/post...), apparently the creator said: "The main drive for this app are: - I can't see all your code contributions since the beginning of time at a glance. - For each of your pinned repos, I can't tell at the first glance whether you just fixed a typo or you wrote 90% of it." I think the code contribution % is super useful. Obviously you can't just take LoC at face value, but it's a useful metric for determining what a given user actually did.

Nice concept - shame that the day it's featured on PH there is overload.

How does this product work? Can automatically extend the normal profiles or is this a separate page?

@diskevich ah, I see, it's not an extension but a seperate website.
