Gathering interest for an interests package

One of the biggest concerns I had when I first started developing Tisn was how to craft a good enough list of interests, as it's a critical part of the application. Questions like: "What to include?", "How to organize it?", or "Where to get icons for it from?" were revolving around my head for way too much time, until I finally settled on a list of interests and a set of icons.

However, since then I've had in mind that creating and maintaining such a list in a more distributable way has the potential to be a very useful project. So here I am, writing this post to see if people would be interested (pun intended 😛) in such a project and even in working on it with me!

Now, a short list of the requirements I thought for the project follows:

  • Contain a (somewhat) complete list of interests
  • Be organized in categories
  • Provide custom icons
  • Have an open source license
  • Be distributed as an npm package

As can be seen from the list of requirements above, this project touches many different kinds of work, so it could be a great opportunity to work with people from many different backgrounds!

Without any more hesitation, here go the questions: are you interested in such a project? Would you like to get involved in it? Drop a comment below and let's get the discussion started!

And one last thing: if you react to and share this post for further reach I'll appreaciate it very much!

Thanks for reading, I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
