🌟 Review my open source repository 🌟

I work at ForgeRock as Staff UI Engineer, I play with all sorts really. Lately WASM is my toy of interest.

I am trying to build a community and gain contributors for the open source project:

didi.land

Stabilizing this repository has been tricky for a mind maker upper, there are lots of moving parts, but I have tried to run this repository with projects, issues and pull requests.

The readme needs a little work, I'm also missing guidelines to contribute.

beginners tag has been added to this post to see what more junior developers thoughts are on if they would contribute based on the issues.

The one thing I really want to get out of this post is if nothing else, does everyone understand what didi is and when you might want to use it, and would you contribute based on the state of the repo.

To be totally transparent, I am dyslexic which I worry might put people off due to my English literature prowess 😬.

All feedback and constructive criticism welcome, stars also help!

Thank you and stay safe.

Yay, you went with didi in the end. I like the logo, man!

Keep the good work, If I have some time I might check out the repo and try to help with the readme if I can :)

I would recommend using Grammarly or some similar tool to help you with your grammar and dyslexia.

Manolo, I'd be very greatful! This is my first community driven project it just needs a community πŸ˜…. I will checkout gramerly, I have heard good things about it.

Yeah I've gone full didi and I think that's really motivated me to create a great repository and product. I'm throwing the kitchen sink at it.

Cool, I'll be joining the community, and help with anything I can. I already started by updating the readme a bit :)

I'm already a big fan of Didi the little dinosaur xD

Second using Grammarly. I use it all the time, just gives me confidence that my English is all good.

Thank you Socheat, I really appreciate it, the entire brand will hopefully tie into deno and Frontend alike 🀞, I'm hoping for an alpha release within the next fortnight.

πŸ“ˆ Analytics based on my calculator, at the time of writing, this one minute read at a ratio of 786 views to 11 stars gives didi a conversation rate of GitHub stars of 1.4%. With a maximum potential interest of 16, I'd better keep working hard.

Thank you for staring ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ the repository, that's genuinely helping!

Is it ok to share this on my weekly open source newsletter? One of the things I try and do is raise awareness of projects looking to get more contributors.

Sure - I do not email it, I just share it via Twitter/LinkedIn. Here is a link to the consolidated list so far -> dev.to/aws/aws-open-source-news-an...

I will mention your project and link to this post, so fingers crossed there is some interest.
