OSS Monetization is Hard!
Maintainers of open source libraries often start their project because they love the technology or the problem area, or because they found an ingenious solution.
But after their project grows, two acute problems arise:
- Successful Open-Source Libraries cause increasing development and management work.
- Monetizing an Open-Source Library to earn a salary is very hard - donations just don't cut it.
PayDevs is Monetization as a Service for open-source maintainers. We collect money for OSS maintainers without cost for them to help them go full-time.
