Our tools haven’t caught up with this evolution though. They struggle to work together, upgrades are painful, configuration is convoluted, errors are confusing, and everything is slow. We don’t need an incremental improvement, we need to fundamentally change how this tooling is built and used.
Today I’m excited to announce a few changes to the project and the formation of the Rome company.
Rome consolidates dozens of separate tools into one. Rome can install your dependencies, check your code for errors, run your tests, bundle your code, and more, all via a single CLI. Rome will be able to replace Babel, ESLint, Prettier, Yarn, and webpack. Learn more.
It’s been three months since we announced our initial beta release. Since then, we’ve received a tremendous amount of enthusiasm from the community. As that enthusiasm has grown, it’s become clear that Rome will require a full-time developer to be successful and deliver on our ambitious goals and release a stable v1.0.
I need your help to make it a reality.
