We'd love to have your helping hand! - If you like this tool and have an idea of how to improve it or want to add an additional feature, create an issue explaining your idea. - Please, avoid using third party libraries for small/simple tasks, make sure we really need that library in our project, such a simple tool shouln't have lots of dependencies that at the same time have their own almost infinite dependency trees. - If something doesn’t work, please file an issue. - Be nice.
