What obstacles are you facing with your Open Source project? 🥵

I’ve tried launching a couple small open source projects in my time and it has been tough. 😞

Hard to gain an audience. Hard to build a community. And many more.

Why is this?

Well, I’m not sure. There is obviously something in a developer’s path that blocks them from achieving their goals. 😒

Is there something that would make building/launching/growing your open-source project easier?

Let us know in the comments below so we can help you out! 😃

Years ago I wrote an app for public libraries to download a list of the books you have borrowed

Nowadays I read ebooks and do not go to libraries anymore, so they have blocked by library card, so I cannot access their website anymore and not test if my app still works
