Paul Verest, the Nodeclipse project lead posted to the Nodeclipse blog about his experiences with Bintray.

He talks about how the Bintray distribution platform freed up resources to take care of the truly important things – driving Nodeclipse and Enide Studio forward!

The main benefits Paul mentions are:

  • Speed – almost 3 times faster than GitHub and more than 5 times faster than SourceForge!
  • Eclipse Plugins Update Site (P2) Support –  allows users to define a unified Eclipse Update Site for a bunch of Nodeclipse related plugins (with a single URL that always points to the latest versions)
  • Simple UI – simplifies the release process for the Nodeclipse team
  • Additional small perks – flexible statistics and new release notifications.
