Hit 1k ⭐️ on GitHub

David Dal Busco @peterparker

We hit 1k stars ⭐️ on GitHub today.

Not a goal per se but that's really cool. Even a bit unreal to me, as I never had a project which reached that milestone before, even though almost my all work is open sourced.

Thank you all and kudos ❤️.

    Congratulations! Cool project.
    So you have another star from me :)

    I'm also "collecting" GitHub stars. for me every new star is like birthday present, and gives me motivation :) Whether you are the same?

      Haha awesome, thx 🎉

      Indeed starts are pretty cool. Per se it is not a goal and somewhere doesn't mean much but still, it gives a happy feeling!

      Speaking of, your project chat-ui-kit-react may have just received recently a new ⭐️

    That's so awesome. Do you know how much time you spent on this project?

      Difficult to say in terms of hours of work/fun but I can say that the project started in Oct. 2018 as a quick small experiment for a talk.

      It is only in March 2019 that, with my friend Nicolas, we decided to develop a real editor and that we created this GitHub mono-repo. We published our editor end of Sept. 2019.

      Since that date we continue iterating and add more features which we find interesting, fun and/or these suggested by our community.

      We are also really lucky to have received many contributions during this and past year Hacktoberfest.

      I work as a freelancer around 4ich days a week for my clients, so I basically spend the rest of my time on my hobby aka mostly on DeckDeckGo 😉.

        That's so cool. I always admire someone who can dedicate free time for an open source project like that. Just curious, do people contact you for enterprise work frequently?

        1. 2

          Till today we received some few requests about it but it did not lead to anything. I have to say, except having our service displayed on the landing page, we absolutely make zero effort to try to sell it.

    1k stars is a big achievement, congrats!

    Awesome project too, first time i've seen it.
