Some of you may remember when I published an article a month or so back on Binding charts to data in Vue. Since then I have found myself engaged in trying to build out a full featured library of D3 charts for Vue.js. This has been a great learning experience and by embracing Hacktoberfest I was able to get some contributors to pick up a few features here and there. Nearly two months in I feel like it is coming together nicely but I don't feel like it is reaching an audience. Now it could be that this is too niche or because there are other, more mature libraries that provide similar functionality. I like to think, however, that there is a slice of the development community that would be interested in building out a robust, standards-based, customizable charting library for Vue.
What are some of the things that you have done to get your open source project in front of developers? Is it just about getting stars (which I would greatly appreciate wink wink) so that it hits Github's trending page? Or is there something else to it? I would love to hear some of your personal experiences and how to build that audience.
Thanks and keep coding.
