Connect with other developers and showcase your open-source contributions, badges, votes, followers, skills and report cards from multiple platforms such as Github, StackOverflow, LinkedIn, Code School and Gitter.
Rango's mission is to promote collaboration and open-source contributions by connecting developers together and providing a stage for showcasing coding accomplishments, community badges, votes, followers, work experience, skills and report cards from multiple platforms such as Github, StackOverflow, LinkedIn, Code School, and Gitter.
Please visit http://rango.2016.angularattack.io/ and login using your Github account. Once logged in, please refresh the browser to work around a bug that prevents the menu items from working. On the dashboard, you will observe your latest public Github activity such as git pushes, starring and watching repositories as well as StackOverflow activity relevant to your profession. You can navigate to your account or the Connections views to connect other accounts such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and Gitter. In the header, you can enter a github username to search for that user. The search results page will display all matching users and allow you to follow them (Screen resolution must be below 1200px wide or the list of users will be hidden by the menu) . Given more time, we would have loved to provide a method for viewing the profiles of the coders you've followed and begin interacting with them or just having their coding activities show up on your dashboard.

Well done design, simple and easy to understand/work with.
Wiiiiiiiiiiise words 8-)
nice design and layout
Great idea of platform.
This is a really great idea; almost a social network for developers, conglomerating profile information from a variety of sources. I think the idea is ambitious, especially for a hackathon, and if it's continued to be developed, will be a massive hit.
I'm impressed by the number of services you can connect to. However, I had issues with the UI:
- I got logged into GitHub ok, but not from the hero unit.
- Clicking on the GitHub/StackOverflow feeds buttons in the tab bar reloaded the page back to the opening hero units.
- The StackOverflow feed is a cool idea, but a bit frustrating without understanding why each post is being picked. The feed in StackOverflow is more effective. It could be improved by being limited to your friends on Rango.
- I connected to LinkedIn and Twitter but only GitHub showed up on my connections, and the information displayed was confusing and looked like internal variables and identifiers.
- If the UI was not at least as tall as the viewport height, the result was an ugly white section of the remaining space at the bottom.
- The left side panel didn't always scroll with the page, which could make everything discontiguous.
The UI issues made the experience a bit frustrating.
Improvement of UI issues and perhaps the addition of mobile-friendliness could make this a killer app/service. I very much hope you continue with the idea.
I was unable to login to the application. The error was "Invalid Url". However I checked the screencast. I guess you guys are trying to link accounts like linkedin and stackoverflow with github and then show a unified feed related to the github project. If my understanding is correct, the concept is really good. I will use this when you roll it out in the open.
It's a nice idea and with some improvements can definitely be a regular app to use.
Beautiful looking design. I see a few layout issues and I think a few loose bindings, but it does what it says and it looks good. A great start =D
Good idea. Homepage was a little misleading however, I thought you were an animation studio or something.
It's a really interesting project. But it will be nicer if it's got some sandbox like plunker or something like that. Something that allow to give examples of solutions to common issues reported
Love the dark UI! and a really easy to use app, good job! :D
