This is a curated collection of “dramatic” github interactions. Click on the Commits button to look at the latest drama.
This repo is intended to point out comical interactions that come up in the world of software development, and not to harass anyone. Sometimes tensions build up in online interactions, and the intention of github-drama is to allow participants to take a step back from the drama and say to themselves, “damn, I need to chill”.
Go into a GitHub project’s issues, and sort by “Most commented” or “Most reactions”.
There’s no agreement on what’s considered dramatic enough to be included in github-drama. Everyone has a different sense of humor. There are plenty of “non-serious” github threads, where the usual github politeness gives way to reaction gifs and one-word replies, turning into something like a 4chan thread but less funny.
This repository follows the guideline that if anyone in the thread appears to be getting worked up about something, it can be considered for inclusion here. If a repository’s maintainer has locked conversation on a thread, that’s also a good indicator that it could be included here.
