    Interesting, 845 repositories by the user, and the vast majority of them are simple NPM modules such as this one.

    Has there been any recent instances of someone abusing simple NPM repos like this for malicious intent?

    It doesn't look like so. The author is definitely creating some confusion, but the readme of his professional Github's account (https://github.com/jonschlinkert) says:

    > Several years ago I switched careers from sales, marketing and consulting to learn how to program, with the goal of making the world a better place through code. [...] To date, I've created more than 1,000 open source projects in an effort to reach my goal. Open source software takes a lot of time to create and maintain. You can help me to achieve my goals of changing the world through code, help me create better developer experiences, or just say thank you by sponsoring me on GitHub.

    He's asking for real money; he's definitely not a troll.

    He probably moved that repo away from his profile (https://github.com/jonschlinkert) to avoid being trolled

    It's insanely funny to me that these packages exist while one of his bigger projects (https://github.com/enquirer/enquirer) lists the following reason under "why use it":

    The author's bio on his GitHub profile explains it: he's approaching development with a mindset of sales and marketing. It's also followed by his GitHub stats front and center.

    It's written by this guy, who shits out micro libraries by the hundreds. He moved the project to another user under the pretense that he was learning to program back then, but a lot of his stuff is similarly inconsequential micro libraries.

    Simultaneously the #1 trending developer on GitHub across all languages (out of ~17 million developers at the time) with multiple #1 trending projects: Remarkable (https://github.com/jonschlinkert/remarkable), a markdown parser and compiler (also across all languages, out of ~7 million projects), Enquirer (https://github.com/enquirer/enquirer), a stylish, user-friendly prompt system.

    Since then they've made things that are IMO quite useful, like enquirer, micromatch, and remarkable.

    For now I'm really just looking to show simple menus. I don't really need to completely design them myself... really just after something where I can tell the library what the menu items are, and it does the rest. e.g. here's all the code you'd need to write for a menu with enquirer.js. ...is there a way to do this with brick, or another package that uses brick?
