The article discusses "xc", a task runner that aims to be easy to use and approachable for developers. The main problem it solves is maintaining scripts and documentation separately, which can lead to outdated information. The solution is to define scripts inline with documentation, using simple, human-readable Markdown. xc tasks can be defined in code blocks, allowing even those without the tool to use the README.md file as a reference. The article provides an example of a task and the steps required to run it. xc also offers editor integration for programs like VSCode and Vim, making it easy to list and run tasks. Other tasks include build, test, lint, and deploy. The article provides installation instructions and links to documentation on getting started. Finally, it discusses the purpose of xc, which is to simplify the development process and make it easier for developers to collaborate.
