How To Monetize Private GitHub Repos

I've written a ton of code, and have had a ton of projects that never went anywhere. Some of them were full end-to-end products that never got off the ground for one reason or another. They were a ton of effort and I thought it would be great to be able to monetize those somehow.

6 months ago I created SugarKubes to empower indie developers to make a living writing great code. It didn't work. I think part of the problem was that the old SugarKubes made people upload their code to our GitLab instance. It was also an experiment in a managed marketplace wherein the company created all the containers and code for sale.

I decided to simplify SugarKubes to allow anyone to easily sell a private Github repo. You just log in, set up your project, and will get a simple URL you can embed or send people to purchase access or a subscription to your project on GitHub.

If you're interested in getting started, feel free to hit me up on the chat at SugarKubes

Hugs,

AP

Hey, you can use byvalue.org
instead of monetizing the repo itself, the platform creates APIs from code (or you can provide your own endpoint if you own an API) and then monetize it.
you'll earn royalties per request.
