I received first donation on my open-source side project and it felt great ๐Ÿ˜

You can read the updated version on https://gourav.io/blog/first-donation-on-open-source-side-project

I made a plugin for VS Code a while back (3 yrs) for my own use. Other people started using it so I recently decided to put a donate button in plugin description and see what happens. And guess what somebody donated 5$.

I know I know it's not a big amount but somebody put an effort to make that transaction means he cares about it and found it useful.

This is the plugin I'm talking about. It adds new toolbar buttons to VSCode: https://github.com/GorvGoyl/Shortcut-Menu-Bar-VSCode-Extension
