It doesn't seem like this module is actively maintained. This puts people who want to use it in a very difficult place. Please relinquish npm rights to someone who is willing to fix bugs.


Hi dachev, funny that I see your note only a few minutes after pushing some changes.

I'll be addressing sylvinus's pull requests shortly. Some of them have been implemented in 0.0.2 which should hit npm today.


Dependecy path error fixed in 2a54e02; better reporting for config file errors fixed in 976ba92.

I plan on implementing absolute filenames once I'm comfortable everything else is working ok. Version 0.0.2 is more about making sure everything in 0.0.1 still works since a lot has changed in node and the dependencies in the last few months.

I want to think about how best to include Sass support. It may be a good candidate for a plugin, rather than out-of-the-box support. In general, though, it's a great idea.

I also want to think about the chainable compressors/handlers idea a bit more, but again I think it's a good idea.


Excellent news. Thanks a lot.


I'm cooking up new ideas at the moment related to pluggable support for processors and CDNs, as well as soldering a mixed-type component in a single pass. For example, soldering Sass and CSS files, minifying the combined result, and pushing to CDN.

Initial testing is looking good and I hope to push some of these changes to a new branch soon. For the most part, the API will remain the same, but there will be some changes to the config format to support the new features.


Hey @sylvinus, I've let this PR rot far too long, and I'm not maintaining solder anymore.

If it's still a thing you'd like to do, let me know. Otherwise, I'll be closing this in a few days.
