PostGraphile is a crowd-funded open-source project, licensed under the permissive MIT license. Sponsorship increases the rate of fixes, documentation improvements, and feature development.
Why is PostGraphile a "crowd-funded open-source project"?
PostGraphile is open-source to give users great freedom in how they use the software, and to enable the community to have influence over how the project progresses to make it appropriate for a wide range of use-cases. To make PostGraphile a project that users can rely on for years to come, it needs to be well directed and financially sustainable.
The absolute best way to support PostGraphile’s ongoing development efforts is to become a sponsor. Crowd-sourced funding enables us to spend the most time directly working on improving PostGraphile, which you and other PostGraphile 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 Engine software suite. A small amount is also used to send rewards such as stickers and learning materials to our backers.
Is sponsorship required to use PostGraphile?
Users are not legally required to give back to the PostGraphile 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, PostGraphile results in huge time and money savings for users. We encourage organizations to contribute a portion of these savings back, enabling the project to advance more rapidly, and result in even greater savings for your organization.
