Do you even write?
Using the blua.blue webhook in order to track your writing.
"This year, I will write at least one article a week." - you
Have you formulated such intentions before? I certainly have and I must admit that I haven't been consistent with any of such intentions. From the fitness world, we know that tracking your progress not only motivates and generates data, but generates a feeling of commitment that helps you to succeed. Writerboards aims to tackle this issue for writers. However, not everybody is a novelist. Most of us write blogs, posts or articles.
So how do you track your dev.to contributions?
First, you need accounts for
- blua.blue (or a self-hosted installation thereof)
Let's start with dev.to: go to your account settings and generate an API key. Retain it.
Next, visit blua.blue's dev.to page to convert your api-key to a blua.blue token.
Once done, visit api settings and make sure the following webhook info is present:
On Writerboards, go to integrations and select "blua.blue". This will generate the necessary webhook-data for blua.blue. Visit api settings again to input the information:
You can now start writing on blua.blue and both Writerboards and Dev.to should show up preselected as webhooks.
You will probably notice that writerboards will only add tags that are known to the writerboards-community while dev.to limits tags in general, but allows free tag generations. Writerboards uses tags to count documents towards a group. If you are in a writerboards group and would like to be on the leaderboard, use one of the tags the group uses.
