As you might already know Selenidium Element Inspector is an open-source Chrome extension with which test automation teams can save hours daily while they are automating tests via using Selenide, Selenium, Cypress, Playwright, Squish and TestCafe frameworks.
In the last few days, Selenideium had its first 2 contributions.
Thanks again for the bug report Jester. 🧡😊
I have to admit however I reacted quite quickly I did not start working on the bug as I was busy writing
- My First Month on Hashnode - A Retrospection About Blogging on Hashnode Developer Journaling Platform by Miki Szeles
- Hashnode Weekly 004 by Miki Szeles
- The Mistery Of The Supposedly Red ❤ Emoji AKA The Story Of How I Became A Software Developer Detective To Debug The Internet
All of them are related to software development and blogging, so I highly recommend checking them in case you have not done it yet.
I did not consider the bug showstopper as you can figure out the real meaning of the options with a few clicks, so I left the source code untouched for a few days.
And that is the story, how the second open-source contribution has happened as Jorge Romero submitted a bugfix in the form of a merge request for it.
Thanks, Jorge. 🧡😊
It is of course far from being paid as you would get paid for your daily job, but I remember how happy I was when Maddy bought a coffee for me a few days ago. Thanks, Maddy. 🧡😊
In addition, to show my gratitude for the bugfix I also wanted to show my gratitude to Jester for reporting the bug. So I told him I would like to buy a coffee for him, but I am still waiting for his Buy Me a Coffee link. 😊
And that was the point when the idea of the Selenideium Element Inspector Bounty Hunting Reward Program was born in my mind. 😊

A: Sure. And in case you do that, I will buy 1 extra coffee for you.
