Code Quality Dependencies Circle CI npm downloads npm version Donate

‘We are people, not machines’. An initiative to know the creators of a website. Contains the information about humans to the web building - A Nuxt Module to statically integrate and generate a humans.txt author file - Based on the HumansTxt Project.

💘 Motivation

What is humans.txt?

It’s an initiative for knowing the people behind a website. It’s a TXT file that contains information about the different people who have contributed to building the website.

Why a TXT?

Because it’s something fast to create. Because it’s not intrusive with the code. More often than not, the owners of the site don’t like the authors signing it; they claim that doing so may make the site less efficient. By adding a txt file, you can prove your authorship (not your property) in an external and accessible way.

Who should I mention

Whoever you want to, provided they wish you to do so. You can mention the developer, the designer, the copywriter, the webmaster, the SEO, SEM or SMO… As you can see, the number of people who may take part of the creation of a site can be big, so the list is almost endless.

Humans.txt Project: You can read more about it, on the website.

N.B.: for nuxt < v2.9, you must use modules instead of buildModules.

N.B.: It’s recommended to append static/humans.txt (depending on your-static folder-path) to the .gitignore file.
