The power of open source and social coding

A few weeks ago I published the open-zwave Python wrapper. I basically started with a small wrapper suiting my personal needs. After a couple of days I was asked to share the code on Github. Until then I never used Github before.

I did not expect anything from that whole social coding thing. But then after a couple of days two guys (Steve Davidson and Drew Perttula) started commiting code (a lot of code!) to the project. Here’s the result of 3 weeks on Github:

52 commits with 5,421 additions and 510 deletions

Really impressive, thanks a lot guys!
Steve even made a really nice curses interface to it, here are some screenshots (click for full view):

This interface available on Github as well.
