Flossbank –On a mission to support Open Source
At Flossbank, we help Open Source authors and maintainers receive compensation for their work.
Our mission isn’t unique. Our approach is.
What is Flossbank
The equitable way to support Open Source
Flossbank uses a combination of enterprise funds, developer donations, and developer ad revenue to support all of the packages used, all the way down the dependency tree. Yes, all of them.
Our no-cost option means everyone can support Open Source maintainers
We give across the entire dependency tree, supporting maintainers big and small
Flossbank doesn’t change your existing workflow
Your donations go directly to the packages you use
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.
Support maintainers at no cost
Opt in to curated, tech-focused ads in your terminal when you install Open Source packages. Here's how it works.
Or set a monthly donation
Donate monthly to the developers and maintainers of the Open Source packages you install.
