Hey Anna, it's thanks to my open source project that I've been able to switch from sysadmin to software engineer. So share yours with your network! I've added "Open source developer" in my experience section:

Don't worry you won't appear pretentious. IMHO, open source is about people, the fact that you are willing to share your projects shows how open-minded and collaborative you are.

It doesn't matter if your projects have 1 or 1000 stars. It doesn't mean anything. What matters the most, is that your project provides a solution for a given problem, this is my first criteria when using a library.
