Pretty sure most developers have thought about this when making their open-source projects and then after a while realizing that their project got barely 2 to 3 stars and sometimes not even that.
Well, the answer is clearly yes. Stars do matter on Github projects. Stars project confidence and good quality on a project but it doesn't necessarily mean that if a certain project doesn't have stars, it's bad or anything like that but it could be inferred that a project with a lot of stars is most likely a good quality project and something worth contributing to and/or to use in your own project.
I was at the same place 4 weeks back ( still am in a way ) when I made the codebase for my coding platform, DomeCode open-source because I felt like closed-source is more like an artificial barrier and people should be able to use my code for their own open-source free projects.
Even though I have proven that I'm close to a saint, I should also state that this feeling is subject to change in the future but presently, my project is well open-source and has gotten 47 stars so far. Technically, ~12 stars a week.
Either way, the point is it's good to have stars just like it's good to have money. However, similar to money, stars don't mean everything but they do certainly mean something and you gotta have that if to ease your way through.
Cutting the shit and getting straight to it, these are the strategies to deploy in order to get stars:
- Shit post everywhere
- Ask your closest friends to do the same
Eventually, you'll get to 100k stars and let me get this clear, this is exactly where I'm headed with DomeCode.
Oh and DomeCode](https://domecode.com/) is essentially a platform that improvises over existing "code to learn" platforms by making the process of going from point A ( picking a language ) to point B ( getting good at it ) easier than ever by including tools and resources along with a wholesome community to make your experience better.
