GitLit was my first SaaS. It was meant to be a platform for students to 1) find open source projects and kickstart their open source journey easily 2) build a work profile, a resume of sorts with commits, testimonials, from the projects they contribute to 3) get hired by startups.
GitLit did not make it beyond MVP due to a variety of reasons, the major one being a lack of a clear monetising strategy and funds. Learned a lot tho!
