Discussion on: What was your win this week?

My OSS project 1) surpassed 300 Stars on GitHub AND 2) Was accepted into homebrew core and is now easily installable for Mac users!

Brew support is especially awesome because:

  • An official brew maintainer found my project from my launch post on HN and helped get the brew formula designed and submitted.

  • The project name is run and the word "run" was one of small list of reserved words for brew, so we needed to also get a PR approved to remove the word from the reserved word list.

  • This is the first package-manager integration for my project - Hopefully others will come soon.

Overall I'm stoked with how well my project has been received and hope brew support will enable more people to give it a try and offer feedback on how to make it even better.
