What is hotwire.io?
It's a community-driven documentation and resource hub designed to promote the Hotwire ecosystem. Hotwire.io is the go-to place for framework-specific documentation, a hub for discovering tools and libraries built for Hotwire, and a platform to showcase community content like blog posts and videos.
Why does hotwire.io exist?
Hotwire.io is the answer to the growing demand for comprehensive Hotwire resources. It aims to offer a cohesive experience for Hotwire enthusiasts, developers, and those curious about the framework. Hotwire.io empowers the community to navigate the diverse Hotwire ecosystem with ease and helps you harness the full potential of Hotwire.
Hotwire.io is not just another project; it's a community-driven hub meant to support developers like you. We encourage you to get involved, contribute, and help shape the Hotwire ecosystem.
October is not only a time for crisp autumn leaves and pumpkin spice lattes but also for Hacktoberfest! If you're eager to earn your limited-edition swag while making a meaningful contribution, consider submitting pull requests to hotwire.io.
It's a fantastic way to support the Hotwire community and make your mark on the project. Let's code, collaborate, and celebrate! 🍁🎃🌟
You can get started by opening a pull-request on the GitHub repository. We are really looking forward to your contribution to make this the best Hotwire resource available! And who knows, maybe it can become the official website for the Hotwire project at some point!
If you want to contribute and don't know where to start or want to pair on a feature if that's more comfortable for you, please reach out to @marcoroth_. He's more than happy to help you get you started and involved!
That's it for this week!
