> Feel free to make a PR to improve things boubiyeah

What kind of answer is this?

I don't think "boubiyeah" is working for you, nor has signed up for contributing to your project.

When you publish something to a public forum, even if you it is an open-source project, you open yourself to criticism(actually criticism is a great tool to help you improve your project), so my suggestion would be to be open and positive about the feedback, even if it is not all back-patting.

PS: You have done great work on the toolkit, thank you for making it open source.

In my experience[1] the best way to get contributors is exactly the opposite, you have to leave the easy and cool parts for new people and do all the grunt work by yourself. Making a new feature is something fun that other contributors can try to do and learn a lot, while optimizing your website is something that mostly only saves you money (as contributors could do that virtually anywhere else and learn the same). See an example of what I mean: [2]
