Time for #DEVDiscuss — right here on DEV 😎
≥8 years ago, I wrote about an extremely niche improvement to a very specific use of SVGs. It got enough positive feedback that I turned that knowledge into an NPM package: mini-svg-data-uri.
Today, it’s both one of the most and least important web dev things I’ve ever done.
- Have you ever had a surprise, unexpected, or random OSS success?
- Have you ever worked really, really hard on an OSS project and received minimal reward?
- What can we do, collectively, to better support OSS builders and maintainers whose work we rely on?
- Any triumphs, fails, or other stories you'd like to share on this topic?
