Community Activity and Overview
This week we've merged 13 pull requests. Here's one of the Instant Answers that got merged in. Check it out!
Our first-ever New York Quack & Hack event is tomorrow! It doesn't matter if you're just starting out on DuckDuckHack either—beginners are definitely welcome!
- iambibhas has revived and redesigned the Debian Packages Instant Answer. It's been sitting on a branch for a while, and we're glad that it's finally going to go out soon.
- puskin94 continued the RC4 Instant Answer.
- kfloey made an Instant Answer for helping climbers find new places in an area.
- moollaza reduced the number of requests to Time by being stricter on the triggering.
New Instant Answer Ideas:
- Screen Resolution
Know your screen resolution quickly through DuckDuckGo. It should get browser information just like the Useragent Instant Answer.
- Programmable Web APIs
Programmable Web has a ton of APIs, and it would be great if we can search the APIs available through ... well ... their API.
- Time Calculator
We could probably expand upon DateMath, so that it could answer queries such as "5 hours from now".
Have a good weekend, everyone!
