Design your own GitHub activity graph, mine is a DNA spiral

I recently turned my github activity graph into an 8-bit looking DNA spiral!

my faked out github contributions

By setting GIT_AUTHOR_DATE and GIT_COMMITTER_DATE it is possible to log a commit at any point in time. The tool I wrote allows you to draw a pattern sort of like a mashup of mine sweeper and MS paint for windows 3.1. Then it generates the commits that match that pattern.

Here is the page where you can build your own. If you come up with something cool to put on your profile I’d love to see it. For the record, this wasn’t an original idea. Others have done similar projects (which I reference at the bottom of the tool), but none let you draw right there in the page. This was purely for fun and only took me a few hours to knock out and test.
