I find getting stuck (or missing a feature) with a package the ideal moment to have a look how it works and if it's doable to add it yourself. Daunting at first, and there might be occasions where it turns out to be uncomfortable at your current experience level.

Still, looking into the source code can be very valuable - and the moment you can build your missing feature will come. When struggling with creating a pull request the first time, I'd recommend having a look at this guide by Matt Stauffer.
