Alpas is an open source, Kotlin-based web framework and being open-source, we spend money with no real expectation of receiving anything back.
However, 100 stars actually is a threshold for some generous companies that help sponsor and provide support to open source projects, such as covering infrastructure expenses, that we can now apply for. Hopefully, we will get some assistance. But, if we don't, that's not going to stop us from iterating on Alpas as our main goal is to help others create awesome web apps and APIs while enjoying using Kotlin in a simple, straightforward back-end framework.
Thanks to all of those who helped support us by staring our GitHub Repro and especially to those who have taken time to look at Alpas, create their own projecting with Alpas, and provided us with valuable feedback! 🙏
