When I discover a Meteor package that the author’s done some stellar work on, saving me hours and hours, I find myself wanting to leave a comment saying how grateful I am, to keep up the good work, etc.
There’s no real place to do that on atmosphere, or on Github either (I could open an issue, I suppose, but that’s kind of the opposite of what I’m aiming for). I guess I could check for an email address on github and send a personal email but, again, that’s not quite what I’m after.
Unless I find the package in an announcement here or in crater.io, I don’t have an easy way to thank the author via a comment.
p.s. I’m not forgetting the possibility of a gittip button in github
