    Github has millions of projects, some large fraction with more than 100 stars, so it doesn't seem like you are searching very hard. But more importantly, why "100 stars"? Stars are meaningless and arbitrary. Many developers use stars like bookmarks. I just did a quick search and noticed a project like realworld (just a demo for learning, 65 contributors) has have more stars than Bitcoin (900+ developers, perhaps you have heard of it?)
