We’re excited to announce that Earthly is participating in Hacktoberfest this October.

Last year’s fest saw more than 400,000 pull requests opened and this year should prove to be even larger.

What Is It?

The hosting provider DigitalOcean is once again hosting the Hacktoberfest to celebrate open source. The Hacktoberfest invites you to submit pull requests to open source projects. People who submit four or more pull requests, get a free t-shirt from DigitalOcean.

Sticker Rewards

In addition to this official event, Earthly would also like to kick in some rewards for people who contribute.

Earthly is an open-source build tool.  It lets you build everything using containers.

The first 40 participants who submit at least one pull request that is accepted Earthly’s GitHub Repository between October 1, 2020 and November 1, 2020, will get an earthly sticker.  We have labeled many issues ‘Hacktoberfest’ to get you started.

You can also qualify for the sticker by adding a working Earthfile file to another open-source project, including your own personal project.  Check with the project maintainers first.

How Do I Claim my Sticker?

Send an email to , with your address and link to your merged PRs. We reserve the right to decide whether a PR is contributing value.  

Questions / Help ?

If you have any questions, or if you need any assistance, we are on the Gitter channel to answer questions.  Feel free to also email .  

Questions about a specific issue or PR are best left on that issue or PR.

Happy hacking!
