5 Things I Learned Building Snowpack to 20,000 Stars

  • Anil Reddy Maram

In this post, I want to share 5 things that I learned growing Snowpack from the initial commit to almost 20,000 GitHub stars and over 1,000,000+ downloads. This post is meant for anyone interested in Open Source software. The highlighted lessons are directed at anyone who is interested in starting their own open source project or contributing to an existing project. This will be a 2-part series: In this first post I focus on lessons learned creating Snowpack from scratch and finding our first set of users. In the next post, I will focus what it's like to maintain a popular open source project, at scale.
