Pretty sure most developers have thought about this when building their open-source projects and then after a while realizing that their project got barely 2 to 3 stars and sometimes not even that.
Well, the answer is clearly yes. Stars do matter on Github projects. The stars project confidence and quality on a project, but it doesn't necessarily mean if a project doesn't have stars, it's not good or anything like that. However, a project with lots of stars is most likely a good quality project and something worth contributing to and to use in your project.
I was at the same place four weeks back ( still am in a way ) when I made the codebase for my coding platform ( DomeCode ) open-source because I felt like closed-source is more like an artificial barrier, and people should be able to use my code for their free and open-source projects.
Even though I have proven that I'm close to a saint, I should also state that this feeling is subject to change in the future, but presently, my project is well open-source and has gotten 47 stars so far. Technically, ~12 stars a week.
Either way, the point is it's good to have stars just like it's good to have money. In similarity with fiat currencies, the stars don't mean everything, but they do certainly mean something, and you got to have that if to ease your way through.
Cutting the shit and getting straight to it, these are the strategies to deploy in order to get stars:
- Shit post everywhere
- Ask your closest friends to do the same
Eventually, you'll get to 100k stars, and to be clear, this is what I want with DomeCode.
Oh, and DomeCode](https://domecode.com/) is essentially a platform that improvises over existing "code to learn" platforms by making the process of going from point A ( picking a language ) to point B ( getting good at it ) easily than ever by including tools and resources along with the whole-some community to make your experience better.
Feel free to support me in my journey by starring DomeCode on Github.

P.S This was partly satire for those of you who didn't get it. This post script, on the other hand, deems the whole motive of satire pointless.
