Differences to other packages

Differences to facebook/nuclide - Nuclide is nice and all but it's mostly bloatware for lightweight flow programming

Differences to AtomLinter/linter-flow - It tries to manage flow servers by itself, I find it annoying

Differences to nmn/autocomplete-flow - Never worked for me

Differences to LukeHoban/ide-flow - Outdated and buggy - No longer maintained
