Growth for the marketplace has been slow but steady. I think a lot of it has to do with how unnatural it is for developers to buy anything other than templates or starter projects.
So that is going to have to be the focus moving forward. Perhaps we can change behavior later by having really specialized and awesome React components, etc, but until then I don't think there will be any other way to grow than to lean into templates and starter projects despite that not being what I had in mind.
That being said, we now have a total of 10 others selling on the platform so I don't have to build everything for sale by myself!
