This is Jason.

Drawing

Jason is a mailman who likes to compete in hackathons and make side projects in his spare time.

However he wastes a lot of time evaluating boilerplates and starter kits arbitrarily.

This makes Jason a sad mailman.

Help Jason rate boilerplates.

Introducing PackageJason

A hackathon/starter kit/boilerplate rating engine.

  • SEARCH: Search open source boilerplates by desired stack (we crawl the package.json for you... geddit? eh? no laughs? tough crowd.)
  • FAVE: Keep a list of your favorites you can come back to and use
  • SCORE: Rapidly evaluate the cognitive load of any boilerplate you come across!

Demo gif

With his new boilerplate skills, Jason even has time to ask Package Jane out on a date!

Drawing

Will she accept? Stay tuned!

FAQ

What is cognitive load?

Cognitive load is 50% External Load and 50% Internal Load.

  • External Load = Number of root deps + (Total number of all deps + Number of root devDeps)
  • Internal Load = Number of files and folders + Total filesize of Javascript files
  • "deps" here mean "dependencies" in case it wasn't obvious

We contrast this with a Popularity Score (adopting the approach of npms.io) to achieve a quantifiable tradeoff of cost/benefit.

So how do I use this thing?

You can't. Package Jason is still working on it. This isn't launched yet. However we appreciate your interest.

So is "Package" a title or a job description or a last name or...?

Yes
