nock is the most popular HTTP mocking library for Node.js with 20+ million downloads from npm.
🎯 Goal 1: Project revitalization ($3,000)
nock was published by Pedro Teixeira in 2011 and maintained it very actively until early 2016. It became the defacto mocking library for http requests in Node.js. Since Pedro moved on to other projects, nock lost its velocity, the current code base does not reflect the huge development in the Node community in the past years. A bigger effort will be necessary to
- modernize the code base
- lower the barriers for new contributors
- overhaul the documentation
Once we hit this initial balance goal, we will hire maintainer.io for an initial assessment of the project which will give us actionable times to improve the overall setup of the community. We will not use the money to pay contributors, but instead invest into the facilitation of contributions in general.
Once we fill good about the overall setup we will organize a global event to kickstart contributions to the project. For such an event to be successful we need a clear roadmap with many actionable tasks that individuals and teams can collaborate one. Help us to make it happen :)
🎯 Goal 2: Accountable Community Management ($6,000 / year)
A vital Open Source community depends someone accountable to create and grow a safe and inviting space where both volunteering and sponsored contributors enjoy to participate. This is exactly what http://maintainer.io provides, Open Source community facilitation as a service.
With the help of maintainer.io we will be able to attract and retain more contributors with more diverse talents, be more transparent about our processes, automate more chore work and grow our maintainers team.
If you rely on nock then help us to make nock a poster child Open Source project and community <3
