StimAwesome is Live!

Hello everyone,

I’m excited to share with you all that StimAwesome is live!

When searching for community Stimulus plugins to use in my projects, I found it quite difficult to browse NPM for exactly what I was looking for. I set out a few months ago to work on an open source Stimulus controller aggregation site, inspired by how helpful VimAwesome is at doing the same thing for Vim plugins.

Enabled today:

  • Package submission
  • Package viewing
  • Basic package searching
  • Package ranking by a weighted score based on NPM downloads
  • Daily package updates pulled from the NPM Registry

Planned for the future:

  • Enhanced package searching and filters
  • Package tagging / categorization
  • Package dependency callouts

Please feel free to peruse the GitHub repository if you’d like to suggest a new feature or help with development! The site is implemented with Ruby on Rails, TailwindCSS, and Stimulus.

You can read through my previous post talking about this idea here.

I suggest you to make names of packages white or their background lighter. Black on dark blue is almost unreadable.

I would be more than happy to review a pull request for that change!

I’d be happy to make the change if you were using BEM. The selectors you use make it hard for a person from outside like myself to find the right place for it.

Which seems to be maintained.
