Stuck on an issue?

Lightrun Answers was designed to reduce the constant googling that comes with debugging 3rd party libraries. It collects links to all the places you might be looking at while hunting down a tough bug.

And, if you’re still stuck at the end, we’re happy to hop on a call to see how we can help out.

I’ve been thinking about doing this for quite a while now, but kept on pushing it farther and farther away. As much as I’d like to avoid it, Moon might have to be renamed. It’ll give me more freedom to expand the community. Renaming Moon also has a number of advantages:

  • Smaller domain
  • Better SEO and visibility
  • Shorter NPM package name
  • Unique file extension (.moon is used by MoonScript)
  • Official Twitter account

Upgrading should be fairly simple.

  • All development will continue on a renamed version
  • moonjs will be kept on NPM for all versions up to v0.11.0
  • All new versions (including alphas, betas, and RC’s) will be put on the renamed version
  • The current documentation will redirect to the new one
  • This repo will redirect to the new project, which will have a note about this rename
  • All existing projects using Moon do not need to take action, but it is recommended

I haven’t decided on the name yet, but it should preferably have something to do with a UI library, be about four letters. I’m also open to any suggestions and will not rename it if someone can convince me not to.

@Shubham-Sinha I think the name should be related to being fast, minimal, slim, or flexible. Also, people from anywhere around the world, any background, and any ethnicity can contribute to Moon. It’s a repo where everyone should feel welcome.
