I'm just curious how active the Magento 2 community is . I've asked couple of questions and no one is answering. Also noticed a lot of questions unanswered. Is the M2 community dead or its just that there aren't too many Magento 2 devs?
from what I see your questions tend to be quite broad feature requests. These seldom get proper answers here. I can recommend narrowing them down and adding things like what you have tried so far. Any code that is failing, specific errors the community can help you with.
Magento 2 community is not dead but there are few reason for not getting response very soon as you get on stackoverflow because:
- There are less number of Magento developer as compared to core PHP web developers and more less developers of Magento 2 framework who are expert.
- Writing code of Magento 2 questions requires more effort.
- Even if developer knows that answer if it requires lot of verification and writing lot of coding he skips that question.
No Magento 2 community is not dead it's working hard to resolve issue which are faced by us.I know there are very few discussion on magento community is just because of less magento 2 developer but still it help many new magento developers and it's a grate place to learn things.
Magento 2 community is not dead, most of the question which are not answered are the ones that are not even following Question/Answer format of the site, if question is just mentioning a feature that is required/ I am getting this error and no logs , no debugging on your end etc. the person is just copy pasting client requirement / work assigned to him on stackexchange.
Such low quality and low effort posts are quite common on magento stackexchange where people have not yet mastered magento 2 fully.
In my honest opinion these posts should just be flagged "too broad" and closed.
