For those who don't know me, I am an active open-source contributor. I spend a lot of time developing open-source projects and nurturing the community about them. To help me and others with open-source community management, I have built GitSpo – an analytics and an outreach tool for open-source projects.
It is pretty early in the days of the project, but I already integrate project mentions from GitHub, GitLab, Twitter, Reddit, Gitter, Hacker News, Medium, Stack Overflow, dev.to (of course! 😂) and a couple of other smaller websites.
The use cases are still emerging, but so far I have heard people wanting to use it to:
- track project mentions 👂
- track competition 👀
- measure project growth 🚀
- measure advertising campaign success 📈
- identify talent in the community 🧙♂️
- identify trends 💅
- talk to the community (more about this later!)
GitSpo is now live on Product Hunt – please come see what others are saying about the project and share your ideas. (Investor? DM me!)
