Open source authors and contributors need much more love from the community: those who initiate and share their projects, as well as those who participate and collaborate to constantly improve them, merit a big thank-you.

The intent behind Yo, This is Cool is having a space where you can thank the amazing people behind your favorite open source projects on GitHub.

      The mascotte Meri The Mandragora.

A mandrake root as a mascot introduces the site: whenever you add a cool open source project to appreciate, she pops out and encourages you to scream your thank-you out loud.

The site is designed and developed in the browser in the vigorous SCSS + Compass tandem, with the help of HTML5 Boilerplate and Packery. Its backbone is structured in the mighty Ember.js + Loopback.

The font is Roboto by Google, while the emoji are Twit Emoji by Twitter.
