Seamlessly give back to the maintainers you rely on

Flossbank provides a free and frictionless way to give back to Open Source maintainers, especially those who don’t have time for self-promotion. Here's how that's possible.

By installing our package manager wrapper, you support maintainers across the entire dependency tree of each Open Source package you install in one of two ways: terminal ads or monthly contributions.
