Your problem in gaining interest is that your documentation does not
explain the use of your library. This is a common mistake of many
programmers, who put out implementations and assume that anyone
interested must be willing to spend hours or days figuring out, somehow,
what is there and how it is to be used. Inevitably, no matter how
original or creative that implementation may be, it will be unused by
the vast majority of people who, given adequate documentation, might be
interested in it.

Take a look at the Boost documentation for its libraries to see what
should be done to explain the use of yours. Then, if you update your
documentation and explain well what your library does and how the end
user should use it in its main use cases, I believe you will garner some
interest by potential users.
