This post is more of an announcement of my new Ruby gem
github_contributions. It is a tool that I’ve been using to track my GitHub contributions. I’ve put the contents of the README.md from the repository here as it does a good job describing the tool.
Ever wanted to know where you (or someone else) are making contributions on GitHub?
I personally wanted to track comments on issues and pull requests as I felt they were a good indication of contributions. It sometimes isn’t uncommon for a lot of discussions to happen on issues or even a pull request.
I am a fan of Obsidian right now to track my day at work. Recording these contributions in GitHub makes it simple to recall what I did in previous days/weeks. This is even more important if you have a BragDoc. As Obsidian uses Markdown, that is the primary format that this tool is built for.
gem install github_contributions
You need a GitHub Personal Access Token in your ENVs as
GITHUB_ACCESS_TOKEN for this gem to work.

Contributions are grouped by their pull request or issue in order of creation time. This ends up producing a rather detailed list of where contributions were made in the specified time frame. Links are present to easily allow you to jump directly to the contribution. Everything is displayed in Markdown, ready to be copy/pasted where desired. The following is an example of what the output looks like:
