    For the first time, one of my repositories reached 100 stars on Github. This was a real win for me, and I was wondering what everyone else's first win was.

    What was your first project that got a few pull requests, a few issues, a couple dozen of stars, or that by any other metric made you feel you were a bit successful ?

    ~ I made a calculator while developing an emulator - to help with all the low level number manipulation, to work with multiple number bases, visualize it all, and to add the little things I felt were missing in the tools I was using.

    the program was written in c and the ui made with ncurses :)

    Thanks so much! I just contributed some documentation to another terminal-based app ( that uses ncurses, so if anything goes wrong, I'll make sure to ask them.

    I would highly suggest using something like readline to handle user input in this case. This should also give you easy access to some history manipulation functionality to address
