Open-source is at the ❤️ of everything we do at Appwrite, and we want to enable and foster the open-source community that helped us grow to nearly 24,000 stars on GitHub. Open-source projects, though, require a great deal of effort to maintain and grow. We use open-source tools every day to build Appwrite, and we want to help our community. To give back, each Appwrite engineer gets to pick an open-source project for Appwrite to sponsor for one year.
We're building Appwrite, an open-source Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS), packaged as a set of Docker microservices, to give developers of any background the tools necessary to build modern apps quickly and securely. Come chat with us on Discord.
Brew.sh is "The Missing Package Manager for macOS (or Linux)". I couldn't agree with the tagline for this open source project further. To install anything on my machine all I need to do is run this simple command
Homebrew installs the stuff you need that Apple (or your Linux system) didn’t.
brew install wget
I even use it to install other package managers like npm
brew install node
brew install yarn
If you look at this years top 50 installs.
- openssl - 11 million installs
- node - 5 million
- git - 3 million
At time of writing this post there are almost 33,000 stars and 7,800 forks, and a massive 847 contributors. While I don't like writing Ruby myself if you are into it you should check out if you can solve any of the issues.
For a tool that I use daily (or at least monthly) I couldn't imagine trying to exist as a programmer on Mac or Linux without it. Plus I love their sponsorship reasoning below.
Homebrew is a non-profit project run entirely by volunteers. We need your funds to pay for software, hardware, hosting around continuous integration, maintainer contributions, travel to conferences and future improvements to the project. Every donation will be spent on making Homebrew better for our users.
