Graphile has a number of crowd-funded open-source projects, licensed under the permissive MIT license, including PostGraphile, Graphile Worker, Graphile Migrate and Graphile Starter. Sponsorship increases the rate of fixes, documentation improvements, and feature development on these and other projects.
Why "crowd-funded open-source project"?
Many of our projects are open-source to give users great freedom in how they use the software, and to enable the community to have influence over how the projects progress to make it appropriate for a wide range of use-cases. To ensure users can rely on these projects for years to come, they need to be well directed and financially sustainable.
The absolute best way to support Graphile is to become a sponsor. Crowd-sourced funding enables us to spend the most time directly working on improving the software, which you and other users then benefit from.
How is sponsorship money spent?
Sponsorship money is used to fund software development, testing, documentation and releases of the PostGraphile and Graphile suite. A small amount is also used to send rewards such as stickers and learning materials to our backers.
Is sponsorship required to use Graphile's OSS?
Users are not legally required to give back to the Graphile project, but it is in their interest to do so.
By significantly reducing the amount of work needed to achieve business goals and reducing running costs, Graphile's software results in huge time and money savings for users. We encourage organizations to contribute a portion of these savings back, enabling the projects to advance more rapidly, and result in even greater savings for your organization.
