Another cool Mastodon app I've been using is Mast by local user @JPEG: itunes.apple.com/gb/app/mast/i

It feels "the most iOS" of all the Mastodon apps I've tried, nice polish 👍

Earlier this year, I started working on an idea that would make node_modules go away and, apart from making things fast, would change the very nature of package managers.

The project was announced today! blog.npmjs.org/post/1780270641
