I still believe that the best chance is to carefully disseminate articles in places that (still) allow it, like CodeProject. If I would be able to write more than single article a year, things would probably be better Smile

At least I am trying: https://www.codeproject.com/Articles/5268022/Getting-Started -with-Uplusplus-2020-1

Now if every U++ dev published just single article per year, we would be much better known now... (I have already fullfilled my quota this year with 2 articles Smile

This spike of download come from the CodeProject article ?!

Probably. It is hard to say... But there was an article and there is the spike... Smile

Yeah, I've noticed on those forums that you hardly ever hear about U++ and though you occasionally get a kind comment mostly they're ignored. Maybe part of the solution is to actually create and contribute to forums in these places. So called "killer apps" would also be helpful. A major part of the reason I created the discord bot library was to spur interest in U++ even though I was not a huge discord user (I don't use it at all anymore due to privacy concerns) but when I posted about it on a subreddit I thought was dedicated to bot creation, they said it was "cool" but deleted the thread and told me it was "advertising". Strange use of a word for something given away for free.

I'm not a marketing guru, so I don't know how to generate buzz around U++. Lately I had this idea of creating some sort of linux distro that used only U++ technologies based on a U++ window manager. The idea still sounds cool to me and could perhaps spur additional development of apps, but it would require significant work to get such a thing off the ground.
