GitHub Acquires Open Source Company npm.inc

npm.inc, the company behind the popular Node Package Manager (npm) is set to be acquired by GitHub. Founded in 2009, npm became extremely popular and is the default package manager for JavaScript runtime environment Node.js.

 

Despite its popularity and massive user base, the company struggled with monetization from open source.

Microsoft owned GitHub will bring financial stability to npm.inc, which will benefit the vibrant communities that have evolved around the project.
