Git Attack

This is my first Angular 2 application. I developed it during a weekend (40 hours), where I participated in a hackathon organized for the launch of the first version of Angular 2 back in 2016.

Users can click the loop on the top right corner and enter their GitHub account. If they already have many public repositories, they can press enter and enjoy the view of their repos on the map.

It uses the GitHub API to get the public data from the user's account a display it on a map where each village represents a repository. Users can click on the village to get more data about it, such as commits, contributors, and forks. I'm not that satisfied with the source code because it was made during a hackathon, and we needed to deliver it fast, but there is more information here: https://github.com/rbenhammane/angularattack2016-git-tribe.
