Announcing Greenkeeper for npm On-Site

We’re excited today to announce that Greenkeeper now integrates with npm On-Site. The integration allows you to configure Greenkeeper’s automated dependency management workflow for the modules that you develop privately within your company.

This integration fits wonderfully into our mission of Inner Source: empowering developers within companies of all sizes to benefit from the awesome tooling and best practices of the open source community.

If you’d like to give Greenkeeper a shot, they’d love to hear from you: contact Greenkeeper about starting an enterprise trial.
