And no commits in master since September. No plans to support HTTP2 yet.

It's not dead, I just haven't been able to personally do as much on the project lately. We had a big issue with fixing configurations, which introduced breaking changes, that have halted things until that gets fixed.

So yes, if there are people willing to step up and help as maintainers, I welcome them!

@emilyemorehouse maybe it would be a good idea to advertise that in the README.md, I'm sure there are folks who want to help.

Haven't used the project before admittedly but usually found digging around github, so happy to have a read through some PRs in my spare time.

What would be super nice is a new version which uses ES modules 🙊

I think that doing triage or labeling the issues would help the new volunteers to know where to start...

@emilyemorehouse I'd love to help! Probably would be nice to have a some sort of tags (like, 'for beginners' or similar) on the issues in order to encourage contributors!

I could help, just tell me what to start with :)

I guess we should start with roadmap to stable 1.0.0 release, then split in into issues with "help wanted" label.

😭 y'all are AWESOME.

To anyone who wants to help, here are a few ideas I have:

  • Triage issues: I recently added issue templates to help auto-tag issues (and filter out actual bugs vs usage issues). There's a lot of noise for this project and I spend the majority of my time trying to filter through issues and wind up closing most of them with a simple "This doesn't seem like an Axios bug (many I can't even duplicate), I think X may be your issue, feel free to post on Gitter or Stack Overflow for help debugging your code". If you find a real bug that doesn't have example code, providing example code is a HUGE help. Bonus points if it's as simple as copy/pasting into Runkit with calls to an example API like JSON Placeholder.
  • PR Review: Not quite as noisy as issues, but this can still be a lot to go through. I really appreciate people who tag me in PRs that have high priority/fix known issues. Feel free to ping me if I don't respond after a few days. Currently, the focus is definitely getting things stable before focusing on new features or 1.0.0.
  • CI: Our CI is finicky - we often hit weird edge cases or issues that cause CI to break and that slows up the whole procress. If we have a broken master branch, I can't release, plain and simple. So if you ever see that master is failing (or PRs are failing for issues not caused by the PR), any help there is massively appreciated.

I'm happy to give anyone access as needed. The only thing I'd like to hold onto is acting as the release manager to ensure consistency.

I plan on adding this info to the contributing doc along with my response templates for others to use and guidelines for how issues should be labeled, etc.

@emilyemorehouse I posted a request for help on reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/javascript/comments/an94xq/axios_needs_maintainers/) - as you can see, your work has a lot of fans. I look forward to start contributing and once again- thank you.

It seems like a contradiction.

  • Without contributions, @emilyemorehouse can't distinguish helpful people and grant permissions.
  • Without permissions, people usually won't start to contribute.

I suggest everyone try to subscribe as code helpers first. If we can persist in triaging issues or sending pull requests, @emilyemorehouse will be more glad to see. And one day, you will be a maintainer naturally.

Sequoia commented Mar 28, 2019

I use axios and am not currently concerned about lack of ongoing development (tools typically don't blow up the moment a maintainer steps away), but if anyone is really raring to go & wants to start merging PRs, note that this is an open source project and that there's no cost (besides time) to forking & start reviewing and merging PRs to your fork. This can be a natural progression in the life of an open source tool & this work can also be merged back to axios at such time as Emily (or her team) has time to pick this back up.

Not saying "go fork it," but "if you're feeling frustrated or feeling like the project is 'dead', you don't need permission to bring it back to life." The power is yours! 🌍

@emilyemorehouse @mzabriskie @nickuraltsev @rubennorte - What are your plans with axios? Last published beta version was 8 months ago, stable a year ago, you get 4,5 milion downloads a week. It's just a milion less than e.g. react. Taking into consideration this popularity it would be really cool to know what is the status and for you maybe to take some help from the community :)

@Sequoia you are quite right however it's kind of difficult at this point when there are so many open issues and PR's that it's even difficult to decide which are still valid. @emilyemorehouse wrote 2 months ago about how we can help - the first thing is to go over all the issues and do some cleaning :)
