That is a good one. I’d go with something like arityWithRest, but I tend to be overly explicit in my naming…

@CrossEye Why do you want it when pulled from github? Why not just allow the user to execute something like npm run build to get the dist? It is not very far from doing npm installin order to be able to run grunt, the tests etc

@TheLudd: That's always possible. But then people aren't downloading a usable library. The way it stands now, they can clone from GitHub or even download a zip file and not have to have any other tools such as NPM installed in order to use it. If it's too hard, I certainly wouldn't try to push for it. But it would be nice to have.

Well, if I download the source for a project I expect to have to build it. Granted, npm is not as common as say c++ compilers. But for people who do javascript? I'd guess it is pretty common.
But I just have an itch when it comes to checking in compiled resources :)

Well for nodejs I tend to expect a compilation step, but for browser-js library ? It’s generally git clone and you’re done.

I have never gotten a browser lib or any other lib for that matter from git ready to use right there.
What is the use case? Getting the bleeding edge?

There's a mix out there. Many libraries do ship with working copies in their downloadable repos, ones like Underscore, lodash, and backbone. Many others don't, ones like modernizr, jQuery, and (I think) Angular. I think it would be nice to have, but not if it's too difficult to achieve.

I guess I'm not so used to the situation since I use browserify these days where no pre built files are needed.

I imagine the vast majority of people who run bleeding edge software are comfortable running a build command in order to do so.

Another topic. Do we discuss ramda-fantasy here as well or create another room for it?

I think here works well for now. If it gets to be a probem, we can create another room.
