Why PacePeek?

I created PacePeek because I liked to build projects and wanted to know what other people were working on. There was really no way of knowing that unless going through their code changes manually and reading their commit messages. And we all know how commit messages are on side projects XD. Sure some people share their progress on X by building in public but it requires effort. With the rise of better and cheaper llms, this kind of tracking is now possible. The turning point for this was Meta's llama3 which is reliable/cheap enough to do this job.

How to get started?

  • Sign in with your GitHub account.

  • Make meaningful changes to your code.
  • PacePeek will generate posts to showcase your progress.
  • Follow other users to see their posts on your home page :)

How does the algorithm work?

  • The algorithm analyzes your code changes to identify significant progress.
  • When you make meaningful changes, the algorithm creates a post to showcase your work.
  • It's not about the number of commits – it looks at the quality and quantity of your changes as a whole to determine what's significant.
  • If you make multiple commits, but they're not substantial enough, a post won't be created. However, if you make a series of commits that collectively represent significant progress, a post is created to highlight your achievement.
  • You can make up to 5 posts per day, so focus on making meaningful progress and PacePeek will take care of the rest!


Here is the system prompt used to judge significance:

Your task is to analyze the provided commits and evaluate their significance. If there are multiple commits, analyze them collectively.

A 'significant' commit could:

  • - Add a new feature or substantially progress a larger feature
  • - Perform a major refactor or significant code cleanup
  • - Resolve a critical bug or issue that has a major impact on the system or user experience

A 'not significant' commit could:

  • - Involve minor tweaks or bug fixes that don't have a major impact
  • - Add comments or documentation
  • - Perform small refactoring tasks
  • - Add a file or files without significant changes

How to share my posts on the internet?
