awesome-steem for Steem developers

You might know the awesome projects on GitHub, such as awesome-php and awesome-vue, which summarized the coolest projects and tools built by community for a specific technology.

As one tiny step of the initiatives to improve the developer experience for Steem developers, especially for those who are new to Steem, we're creating this awesome-steem project to summarize the helpful development resources for Steem ecosystem, including SDKs, tutorials, libraries, example projects with source code, devops, community, etc. to make the learning and building process easier.

We believe Steem will be more and more powerful when the dream of SMT comes true, and it's the time now to review what we have in our toolbox and improve the developer experience and social impact of Steem, in order to eventually drive more innovation, and bring more public goods to the human and universe.

If you have anything in mind want to add into the awesome-steem project, feel free to leave your comments in the post or submit pull request to the project.

i'm gonna add any missing to my android/ios app! -- thank you for the list, feel free to add the app there! --

17.10.2019 15:32

sure. great job @teamhumble!

I believe SteemGlider should be quite helpful to the steem users. I also love SteemProjects, but I think it's nice to provide a more user-friendly UI for the end users who know very little about Steem, with documents, tips, events, etc. if possible.

And is SteemGlider open source?

awesome-steem is collecting the resources for developers, and it will try to also include the source code of the projects and tools.

I think we can build SteemGlider into a fascinate App Store (with both web and mobile version) for end users, so especially newbies can search and compare applications and tools easily. I feel Steem App Store might be an alternative name for SteemGlider, if you don't mind. :)

Yeah this is for users not developers, would love to see a developer version, I’ve started putting the developer links in one of the menu for those users that might be developers too. As a user that put it together I’m fond of the name. I look forward to the developer community pulling together an open source Cross platform app - I just wanted to use a tool (#nocode) something off the shelf for the users ;)

Either way it’s all good for engagement and outreach.

cool. thanks a lot @arcange. :)

I didn't see the PR in the repo. Could you please send the link of the PR?

18.10.2019 08:04

great. thanks. I have added some comments in the PR :P

And thanks for sharing the finding. This is pretty helpful!!

I feel that repo is mainly built for Steem end users rather than developers, but it would be definitely helpful to add the missing project from that repo. :)
