Sustainability of open-source has been talked over and over again.
As a maintainer, we have been developing an open-source project called Boostnote, and we’ve got over 8,400 Github stars in 2 years.
Through its maintenance made us realize how great open-source community is.
IssueHunt is the funding platform for OSS.
Any issues on open-source projects can be funded by anyone and that money will be distributed to maintainers and contributors.
I discussed about open-source ecosystem and IssueHunt concept with the Boostnote team repeatedly. We actually also discussed with Matz who father of Ruby.
For the proof of the concept, at first we provided it as a bounty program to the Boostnote community.
As a result, many funded issues were solved through this program in a few days, and our community was further boosted.
All of contributions were truly amazing.
So we decided to launch IssueHunt!
Our mission is to maintain an environment where maintainers and contributors can freely develop their strengths, reach their potential and be motivated from open-source community.
We are dedicating ourselves to making that happen!
As same as issues of Boostnote are already funded on IssueHunt, your open-source projects can be also started funding from now.
