Webiny’s Top 10 Favorite NPM Packages

At Webiny we do have the package-of-the-day slack channel where we post our favorite NPM packages daily 🙃

Below, we listed our top 10 favorite NPM packages. 🚀

1. Contreebutors

Contreebutors — A small library that makes it easy to keep a list of all people that contributed to a project (most often an open-source project). It’s really easy to use — just run the contreebutors add --username {GITHUB_USERNAME} command and the tool will add the given contributor to the contreebutors.json file, and more importantly, update the list of all contributors at the end of your project’s README.md file.

3. Indent-string
