$ cnpm install @ironfly/nuts 
SYNC missed versions from official npm registry.


Modified to fix audit issues and also with AWS and Filesystem based stores for releases.

Nuts is a simple (and smart) application to serve desktop-application releases.


It uses GitHub as a backend to store assets, and it can easily be deployed to Heroku as a stateless service. It supports GitHub private repositories (useful to store releases of a closed-source application available on GitHub).
