First and foremost, LibHunt is one of my dreams (🙋‍♂️@StanBright). As a software engineer with a 15+ years of experience, I've been through many programming languages, and I've noticed similar patterns in my needs with every new language. On the whole, LibHunt is an embodiment of satisfying my own requirements with the idea of making it useful to the wider community of fellow software developers. My thinking is that it could be helpful and popular enough, so that I can make enough money out of it (through sponsorships) to support and improve it for the foreseeable decades.

LibHunt's goal is to be the go-to website for developers looking for libraries and open source projects to get their work done.

It monitors everything that's posted on Reddit, HackerNews & Dev.to (almost in real-time). Then, if an open-source repository gets mentioned, we record that and use it to compile the lists of popular and similar projects.

LibHunt lists with alternatives, similar projects, popular projects or programming languages are licensed under CC BY-SA 4.0. I.e. you can use, share or adapt them freely as long as you give appropriate attribution to LibHunt.

Special Pages

The LibHunt Network

Apart of our main website, we run a network of sub-community websites focused on popular programming languages, technologies and frameworks. You can find categorized projects and share your relevant content with the community there.


Should you have any ideas for improvements, enquiry for partnerships or any other feedback, please don't hesitate to contact us. All ideas are more than welcome. Thanks!
