I used to be an avid Nucleo Pro user, but as NP upgrades got delayed, I moved on.
Now I use Lloyd Alvarez's outstanding BG Renderer [link] script. BG Renderer doesn't do everything that NP did, but it does do the thing I relied on NP the most for -- background rendering -- and the new version has a ton of really useful features, especially around notification.
