    Project mention: Is there anywhere WPF designers can post their cool custom controls and find neat ones to use? | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2022-11-12

    There are tons of githubs that just act as a repository for links or collections of snippets. With a quick google, I found https://github.com/Carlos487/awesome-wpf which is just a collection of links to mostly other github pages for wpf stuff. A few years ago I remember using a github that just had a bunch of text files for different xaml styles and animations for you to copy and paste, but can't find it now. Github is definitely the easiest way to go for putting your own stuff up, though I'm not sure of the best way to have other people also be able to submit their styles or resources.
