We understand that the vast majority of open-source software projects are maintained by hobbyists and do not bring a lot of funds, if any. We really want you to continue making the truly free software. After all, OSS is being used everywhere, including commercial software, — but only few pay OSS developers back.We want to change that
Benefits for OSS developers
We are currently offering the following benefits to the maintainers of OSS applications.
We are going to share our profits with you, – the maintainer of OSS application we host on our platform. You are the reason our company exists, and you should be rewarded.
The current monetary benefits are:
You get access to paid users that can fund bounties for bug fixes or new features on platforms like BountySource. We also are going to participate in funding bounties that make it easier to host applications on our platform.
Additionally, our team has a lot of expertise in the area and we can help you make architectural decisions if necessary. We encourage you to follow our best practices for self-hosting applications guide (which is going to be posted soon).
If you were looking to provide hosted services for your open-source application, but decided it is too complicated to manage the infrastructure, have 24/7 on-call coverage and incident response team — we got this!
We are also taking payments and managing the users. You, as an application maintainer, do not have to go through process to set up billing, payments and create a company to earn profits from your application.
Your application don't have to support features often requested by companies - such as audit trail and SSO — we got this, too! We can maintain an additional authentication layer on top of your application to only allow access based on SRV.io workspace roles, no changes required from you. We support Google, Azure, Github, and many other services as authentication backend!
Please contact us if you want to host your application on our platform.
