now-client is a tiny JavaScript wrapper for ZEIT’s now API, to make interacting with it as simple as possible. It started off as a personal repo, then was named official after being transferred over to ZEIT. It has been deprecated since the release of API 2.

Motivation

ZEIT’s now is great, but back in the days, it was missing a visual interface to manage your deployments. Luckily at that time, they released an API, which got me interested in building a Now desktop client.

While dabbling around with a proof of concept, I found it cumbersome to interact with the API directly. A wrapper seemed like a good solution to “dry” things up – so I decided to write now-client. I didn’t end up building the desktop app and most likely never will, since Now Desktop is fantastic already. But hey, early versions of Now Desktop were based on now-client, so I guess everything went as planned.
