A simple Atmosphere badge to display the information about your package anywhere.

Meteor Icon builds better package ecosystem for Meteor by making it quicker and easier to communicate package information.
It's a hassle to jump between GitHub and Atmosphere to research the package before using it. Meteor Icon allows authors to aggregate package information and present it with a swag. It also helps package users to make prompt and wise decisions about which package they need to use and how.
Inspired by nodei.co, Meteor Icon cleanly displays information including the install command, latest version, last published date, and some popularity measures.
Crafted at Meteor Sydney
Meteor Icon was crafted down-under at a building at Western Sydney University, Parramatta.
It is about 35 minutes drive from Sydney's CBD. The weather was warm and little chilly at night. After an outdoor barbecue, beers, energy drinks, coffee, red-eyed sleep, we present you Meteor Icon!
Okay, show me the money.
