Nelumbo is designed to make getting a local Filecoin devnet spun up easily, but it also provides some nice-to-have tools including:

Who is behind this project
Justin Hunter (polluterofminds) is building this. He has been working on Filecoin storage client development since the early days of Testnet. This project solves a big problem for him, and it will surely solve a big problem for you if you're building storage client apps.
Nelumbo uses Exceptionless to capture error information to help better support users of the app.
