I didn't even know you can do that!

Hi all! I am Neeraj Anand. I would like to contribute to this project and also want to be a part of GSOC'21 with Wikipedia Organisation. I am contributing to open source projects for a few months back now. I mostly did work in NodsJS, ReactJs, VueJs, ExpressJs, MongoDB, Bulma, Sass. Familiar with Jest, cypress e2e too. Really nice to see you all. It would be very great if someone can guide me. Tagging the mentors of this project @Vidhi-Mody, @Jpita, @Soham. I have already joined the Zulip channel for the discussion for this project. But I am not that much familiar with how Phabricator works since I was using the only GitHub up to now for the issues, PRS for other projects. As I can see there is a Github repo also for this project so will all the work will be done on GitHub or Phabricator. Sorry if I am somewhere wrong. Thanks

Hey @Jpita @Vidhi-Mody @Soham ! I am Sahil Grewal and I am really psyched up to be a part of GSOC'21 via Wikipedia Org , I have been exploring on this project since few days ago and right now, I am almost ready with my Samples and the tasks. Also I am waiting for the Qna session (As informed by @Soham at Zulip) regarding some doubts .Thanks

hey @Soham we have to perform three microtasks that are mentioned up there ?? or there are more related to this project .

@Iamumangg the 3 microtasks are quite generic. If you are done with all 3 you can always write more tests. Make sure to focus on the proposal as well!
