HackerCouch is “Hospitality for Hackers”. To pledge your couch, you must file a Pull Request. More detailed instructions are [here][add].

The idea isn’t new, it has been tried before as well. The reason we are trying this again is:

  • The idea of a Fork->PR->Merge->Publish flow with almost zero effort
  • Filing a pull request is a great filter for hackers
  • hackercouch.com was available
  • This comment by @sirupsen on HN

Development

  • HackerCouch uses Jekyll Collections heavily
  • Hosted on Github Pages, duh.
  • Builds use Travis, and make sure that the site has proper html before its deployed
  • html-proofer for html linting + link checks
