    Default Interesting Github projects

    Please post interesting programming projects here, and also subjects/tasks you are looking for a solution for.

    Regarding the latter point: my programming skills are actually minimal and don't mean to imply that I'm looking for projects to do: I said that more so that I could look for solutions that already exist - maybe others would be interested in actually carrying out a project.

    This is one of the more cool projects I've seen on Github:

    https://github.com/PAIR-code/cococo

    What it does, basically, is take some input notes, such as a melody or a series of incomplete harmonies, and adds notes to them, using some guidelines drawn from J.S. Bach's musical style, making them fuller and richer sounding. I have never actually used it because the instructions for running the app are, as in the case of most Github projects, incomplete. It just says "yarn install yarn dev." Assuming that's something I'm supposed to type somewhere, I have almost no clue where I would do so. To understand that, I would have to begin learning a new programming language, which is not likely to happen.

    @Nunki, I don’t build javascript projects often, so I’m not familiar with yarn, but I’ve seen enough similar build tools that I don’t think the build instructions are incomplete, just not written for non-programmers. You need to install yarn, then type those commands into a terminal from the directory of the repository. Do you use Windows?

    I use Windows, yes. And I'm a programmer, one who still considers the page's instructions incomplete. It didn't tell me what yarn was, notify me that I needed it, inform me of where to obtain it, or explain that I needed to input those commands in a yarn terminal. If the average programmer considers that to be a complete set of instructions, the average programmer needs to think again. Not only does it limit the programmer's audience; it's just plain inconsiderate.

    Lol. Okay. Here's the instructions: install yarn however you're supposed to do it in Windows, then open a terminal (cmd.exe I think it is on Windows), then type "git clone https://github.com/PAIR-code/cococo.git". Next, "cd cococo". Next, "yarn install". Next, "yarn dev." Let me know if you have problems.

    Thank you very much for your assistance. I will give it a try when I can get myself to stop thinking of eternity, death, and God long enough to focus on computer programming and music composition.

    You can use this repo to download all (?) the art on Wikiart. I've not fully explored the possibilities of the data - it certainly downloads the art to many folders (by artist then year etc.), but I don't know how presentable it is. (The file names of the images are just generic numbers, but I expect there will be some way of obtaining metadata). The amount of data will probably be about 100 gigabytes.
