add a description field to the package.json #2654
add a description field to the package.json which is used on npmjs.com, yarnpkg.com/search and more places, right now the description will be read out of the first part of the readme, which isn't that useful:
The npm site renders this as html, while yarnpkg.com/search renders it as escaped text, so plain text is the best choice for this case.
I picked the description from on github to replicate here.
There's not really code change here
