    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.
