Andrew Nesbitt, creator of Libraries.io, Dependency CI and 24 Pull Requests, cares deeply about solving the problems of discoverability and sustainability in open source. He created Libraries.io to help developers find new open source libraries, modules, frameworks, and keep track of the ones they depend on.
“You are not your code.”
We talk about Libraries.io, which has indexed 30 million open source projects. Our discussion covers the trouble of single points of failures in projects, how they developed attributes to assess repositories, how they got funding and how to make decisions about the risk of a transitive dependency.
