Hello and welcome to my b:log. I'm Remy Sharp, a developer running my own business called Left Logic out of Brighton, UK. This place will mostly concentrate on web, code, a touch of business and some other personal pieces too. Enjoy!
Nodemon was first released in Oct 2010 (via twitter no less). To date, nodemon has had 1,024 commits - 184 of which were the community, the rest being from me - runs with over 150 tests (mostly integration tests) had 144 releases into npm, starred over 13,000 times, has had 883 issues closed, merged 331 PRs (mostly mine…sorry), and in the last month, has had just shy of 3 million installations.
So what? Well, up to around 4 months ago, nodemon's development and maintenance had pretty much ground to a halt. No one was contributing pull requests, and my motivation to make changes was nil.
So how can I go about changing that?
