I wanted a really quick and easy way to stay up to date with new releases of the Meteor packages that my apps depend on.
What it does
It automatically discovers your Meteor projects on GitHub and checks daily if any of their dependencies have updates available. If so then it emails you with the details and a command you can paste into your terminal to update the packages.
How I built it
I built it using vanilla Meteor 1.2 (no third-party packages) and ES6.
Challenges I ran into
It was my first app using ES6 but a good learning experience.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
It's under 100 lines of code and took less than 6 hours. I hope it's an accessible project for anyone getting started with Meteor. There are some similar services available but none written in Meteor or as simple to use.
What I learned
How much you can achieve with very little Meteor code!
What's next for Updateor
A prettier UI, support for Bitbucket and maybe automatically generated pull requests.
