Steampipe Hacktoberfest 2022 Recap
New plugins, CLI improvements, blog posts, and more: How the Steampipe community rallied together during Hacktoberfest.
We regularly highlight Steampipe contributors, and we reward their efforts with swag. This year we upped our game by participating in Hacktoberfest by offering limited edition Steampipe Hacktoberfest 2022 stickers for no-code/low-code contributions (e.g. blog posts, doc updates, new table columns) and t-shirts for high-code contributions (e.g. new plugins or mods).
Our global community responded with a flurry of activity. From September 26th through October 31st 2022, we merged 38 contributions from 30 contributors representing 13 countries.
Top contributors: Alexis Minvielle-Debat and François de Metz (4 contributions each).
Top countries: France (10 contributions), India (9), and the United States (7).
20% were in the low-code category, including updated query examples, new columns added to existing tables, and more.
35% of the contributions were in the high-code category, including new Steampipe CLI features, new plugin tables, enhanced plugin capabilities, and two new plugins.
New plugin features
Daeho Ro added two features to the CSV plugin: automatically discover if the first row is a header row, and support gzipped CSV files.
