      1. Using find-up to search files. Now you can use this with monorepos too.

    See the demo running here



    1. Copy pasting / creating badges on such a robotic job.
    2. Some of the default provided badges lacks of some of the accessibility constraint. White on green does not meet the required contrast ratio. See the badge below for example it will be difficult for low vision people to read it

    How it works?

    1. It looks for different file in your project root directory. To decide what tools are you using. And generates badges based on it.

      e.g. If you have .travis.yml then it assumes you are using travis for CI/CD and it creates a dynamic badge for travis latest build status


      if you have appveyor.yml then it assumes you are using appveyor for CI/CD and it creates a dynamic badge for appveyor latest build status


    Badge Type Default
    Size Bundle phobia (if browser only package)
    Size package phobia (if node only package e.g cli)
