Show IH: JavaScript Desktop Automation

Hi everyone 👋

After one year of just lurking around on IH I finally decided to show you my side-project for over three years now: nut.js


nut.js is an open source desktop automation framework for Node.js to make desktop automation across macOS, Linux and Windows easy and joyful!

I started this project simply due to the fact that no existing framework provided all the features I was looking for and it's open source because I believe that others can make good use of it as well.

At the moment it fully relies on sponsoring, with future plans for payed add-ons. It's not that easy to monetise open source software, but I'm still convinced it's possible!

So if nut.js is useful for you, or you want to exchange experiences how to monetise open source software, let me know!
