After being in private beta for the last couple of months, we’re finally ready to release BundleScout and let everyone track packages! We have over 50,000 packages currently tracked, with over 300 updates coming in daily—just with Python and Node.js.
With the recent Ruby on Rails security vulnerability* and hundreds (if not thousands) of updates to third-party libraries being released daily, we think BundleScout will simplify a lot of developer’s lives. No more subscribing to tens of mailing lists, remembering to run
npm update and
pip install -U on a regular basis, or checking individual package’s websites for updates (and hoping they remembered to update the site for the latest release).
With us, it’s watch once, remind forever. Daily updates in a single email mean you can knows what’s been changed over your morning coffee and have everything updated before lunch.
This is just the beginning. We have plans to help you integrate BundleScout even better with your existing development and testing processes.
That all said, why don’t you give us a try? We’d love to know what you think.
* Ruby Gem tracking is coming very soon, we promise.
