DevVsCat956yshare with us?
@PrivateGER You'll get one eventually, it's taken about a year to get any real interest in my project so it just takes time!
Just wait till u find ur first enthusiastic contributor. Your almost die of being overwhelmed
@Faraaz I can imagine!
I have an enthusiastic issue creater at the moment...
If you really believe in the awesomeness of something you made, a little bit of SEO can go a long way as well.
Even if it's just a twitter account where you frequently announce version updates and progress, and a Medium blog where you describe some implementations. Maybe announce it on some forums / subreddits / etc where appropriate.
Oh and *heavily* use the issues tracker for future enhancements, missing tests & planned refactors.
Then whenever someone on DevRant says "I want to learn more about language x" or "I need experience to find a job but can't find an internship either" -- you can ask those people to take a stab at one of the existing issues on your repo. You can coach them a bit through PR reviews, and they can become a valuable contributor to your library/project helping it grow.
Just had the first pull request on my repo! ❤️
