Judging by the number of pull requests opened - some of which are many months old, is it fair to say that this project is no longer being worked on?

I guess I've been working on it, but mostly on my company's private repo. I should probably port some of the changes over to the open source project.

Great - I'd love to get this working in production - currently I'm using Phantom + websockets (as a communications channel) to convert a given snippet of HTML to a png to send back to the client.

html in node -> websockets -> phantomjs -> png (base64) -> websockets -> node (base64 decode to buffer) -> out to web client.

With this setup, the latency is pretty poor, so cutting out some of the layers and being able to pass around node buffers with chimera would be awesome.

So, still have plans to get the open source version up and running again?

+1 on this. I need to decide between node-webkit and chimera. Frankly, chimera seems like the best option, but at the moment it doesn't look like it's getting much love...

@deanmao Dean, node-chimera as a project has a lot of stars, it's talked about on the internet a lot, and it is the only way, currently, to have a headless browser without the burden of an executable. Plus, it's the only think that would run no nodejitsu.

Saying "I guess I've been working on it, but mostly on my company's private repo. I should probably port some of the changes over to the open source project." is a little ambiguous, and I think it would be nicer to have a more definite update. "I guess I've been working on it"? "Porting some of the changes over"? What about existing pull requests and bug reports? What about new development?

I think what you did was fantastic, and am immensely grateful that you released it. Really, really "thank you".

I have some questions:

  • Are you able to go through the issue list and pull requests, and incorporate them?
  • Are you planning on actively maintaining it?

If not, maybe it would be more appropriate to have a notice on the project's page, saying "Looking for a new maintainer". I am sure one of the 723 people who starred it would only be happy to step in -- well, at least I hope so!

Once again, thank you for releasing it!

@deanmao Dean, the stars have become 814. I think developers around the world are still looking forward to a couple of answers:

  • Are you able to go through the issue list and pull requests, and incorporate them?
  • Are you planning on actively maintaining it?

Thanks

@deanmao @here i don't think its maintained actively. I think its time to create something from scratch, that is truly open source and maintained by a community not an individual. Is there such an option already available ?

I've been using zombie.js as an alternative.
