Developing My Own Node CLI Tool! And YOU can Contribute

I made a CLI Tool and You Can contribute!

Basically I'm really excited about writing packages. I just created this small tool called bring-me! This basic cli tool just brings you libraries to your current working directory directly from its cdn! You can also add libraries to the repertoir of libraries you have saved for downloading later!
Examples:

bring-me lib jquery -d /public/js you will have jquery already integrated in your project!

  },
  ...
]

bmconfig.json fields:

I need people to help with creating more basic commands, fefactoring, and improving documentation. So anybody is welcome to participate!
