Hi @all. We're working on an implementation of the CodeMeta crosswalk for NPM packages https://codemeta.github.io/crosswalk/node/. We couldn't find anything out there already so we thought we would spin it out as a separate package. Just wanted to check here first to see if anyone knows of an existing implementation.
Hi @nokome, at Software Heritage we are translating package.json files into codemeta using the crosswalk table, but I'm not sure this is compatible with your use case which I imagine to be "generating a codemeta.json file for a NPM package".
Hi @moranegg : thanks for the info. Given it seems that there isn't anything out there already, we'll try to take the time to publish our implementation as a package on NPM
Sounds great ! if you can put a link to the repo or NPM package when it is published that would be awesome.
Nice to see some friendly faces in here. /me waves at @mbjones@acabunoc et al.

Hi Abby. :)
So I'm giving a talk at Open Science Days in a couple weeks and I'm working on my slides. The topic for the conference is research software: http://osd.mpdl.mpg.de
I'm planning on mentioning CodeMeta.
Mainly I'll be talking about Dataverse and how we're starting to get more into software rather than just datasets.
I guess I'll show a couple examples of CodeMeta crosswalks, for GitHub and DataCite probably. Are there other stories to tell? Any real world implementations yet? Can you download software metadata in CodeMeta format from anywhere?
