@gabrielmoser unfortunately not.
I don't have time to maintain this project but @johnvoloski and I are glad to receive pull requests and/or new maintainers.
I went ahead and added a warning about this right on the beginning of the README file.

the time I can devote to project is little, I can do some things still, but more maintainers is a good idea. (:
