Since we founded StrongLoop last year, we’ve been supporting Express based projects in production. LoopBack, an open source framework we sponsor, like many other frameworks for Node, is built on the shoulders of Express. So like you, we have come to depend on Express quite a bit. We are very excited to have the opportunity to expand on our contributions and to help keep Express stable and robust.
TJ has been a friend of StrongLoop’s for awhile and everyone here at StrongLoop is extremely grateful for all that he’s done within the Node community. We’ve learned a lot from him over the years. Thank you!
Our intentions with Express and the site is simple – pitch in and help.
Our first order of business, after chatting with lead maintainer Doug Wilson, is to get familiarized with the project’s practices, release processes and get started on more visible community contributions, just as we’ve done for many Node community projects. We’ve been added as maintainers to help in the effort, here are some quick intros:
- StrongLoop co-founder Bert Belder, long time Node core contributor is looking at some possibilities to outfit Express with improvements to error handling and flow control.
- StrongLoop co-founder Raymond Feng has been added as a maintainer and helping me survey the current issues so that we can plan team capacity in our sprint to contribute. Raymond works on LoopBack and has contributed to other projects like node-oracle.
- Miroslav Bajtos has also been made a maintainer. Miroslav previously added a host of features to Node Inspector.
- Last but not least, Ritchie Martori has been made a maintainer as well. Ritchie co-authored Deployd and is a key engineer on the frameworks team working on LoopBack.
Please Note: As part of the transfer, the GitHub collaborators were lost. If you were a past contributor please send a PR to Doug to be re-added. Sorry for the inconvenience.
