I've been working on an open source project hosted on github. The code (js+react) is just about ready for a big public launch, but I'd like to make sure people have as few reasons as possible to dismiss it.

I'm especially interested in suggestions for learners who aren't learning front-end technologies or don't want to build yet another shopping cart or calendar widget.

How can I ask politely but firmly and avoid triggering a defense mechanism? Lots of details inside. [more inside]
