Chris here from the Skeleton crew. I am thrilled to finally be able to pull back the curtain and reveal Skeleton Labs - a new company and organization for Skeleton formed by myself and Trey Weir. We've provided a new website that covers everything you need to know - the company mission, services, and even a brief Q&A. Find that below.
To provide some background, Skeleton was originally created by myself and Thomas Jespersen under the leadership of Trey at Brain & Bones. In February of this year, we started work on a new UI component system for the company that would pair the best of what Svelte and Tailwind had to offer. This closed source project was the first iteration of what would become Skeleton.
Fast forward to August of this year, the project was open sourced and met with an overwhelmingly positive reception from the Svelte community. Even now we're averaging around 100 stars on GitHub/month and nearly 500 weekly downloads on NPM with only the bare minimum of promotion. Given the resounding success of the Skeleton library, we've made the decision to move Skeleton from a side project under Brain & Bones to a dedicated new company and organization. This is Skeleton Labs.
This is the next major step for the project and opens the door to many new possibilities. To better understand what this will provide, we recommend viewing the new Skeleton Labs website.
With the launch of Skeleton Labs, we've introduced a new NPM organization, which means a newly scoped NPM package for the Skeleton library. We've provided a quick three step process for migrating your existing projects. This is required if you wish to continue receiving updates going forward, so please do not skip this step!
Skeleton Labs opens the door to direct sponsorship of the project. We will be launching new sponsorship programs through GitHub Sponsors and similar services very soon. Whether you're a current Brain & Bones sponsor or wish to begin sponsoring the project, we encourage you to keep an eye out for our upcoming announcements.
Finally, if we missed anything, let us know in the comment section below or reach out in our community Discord (via the #general channel). I will be happy to respond and answer any questions you may have. That said, I'm very excited about the future of Skeleton, and hope we can continue to provide updates that meet your highest expectations. I appreciate your continued support.
