August 2017: GitHub Development Winners

The fifth month of the GitHub Development Bounty (August 1st to 31st) is now complete!

Our development community continues to push amazing pull requests, innovations and ARK related projects — and we at ARK are truly proud of the hard work you do. We’ve seen some fantastic stuff during August (like ARKKit by sleepdefic1t, opening many doors to developers). This month has seen a significant increase in the number of developers contributing to the ARK ecosystem — proof we are expanding with our community based development progress.

YOU CAN GET MONTHLY BOUNTY REWARDS FOR CUSTOM PROJECTS DEVELOPED FOR ARK (LIKE ARKKIT) — CONTACT THE ARK TEAM FOR DETAILS.

RULES :

  1. MUST BE OPEN-SOURCE (MIT LICENSE) SAME LICENSE AS SEEN ON ARK GITHUB PROJECTS
  2. ALL PROJECTS MUST BENEFIT ARK ECOSYSTEM AND MUST BE PUT ON GITHUB TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR GITHUB BOUNTY
  3. MUST HAVE NOT BEEN AWARDED OTHER ARK RELATED BOUNTIES (NO DOUBLE DIPPING)

Without further ado, here are the winners for the month of August 2017:
