Open sourced my app's engine

Luke Butler @Lbutler

I converted an existing library in C to Javascript and published it all open source! All 212 methods in the API documented and five examples made to help those get started.

I've created a couple of MVPs now off the back of an existing open source project by the EPA, so I thought it was only fair to give back to the water engineering community.

Most software to model water networks is created for the desktop, and software providers charge anywhere between $5k to $50k per seat to run the software.

Most of them use the same open source engine by the EPA!

I'm hoping this inspires some creative development by engineers and convinces people that water models can exist outside the desktop.
