About Harminder Virk

Hey Folks 👋

I am Harminder Virk, the creator of AdonisJS. Through this Patreon campaign, I am trying to make working on AdonisJS sustainable and in return provide some value to the individuals/teams supporting me to work on AdonisJS.



What is AdonisJS?

AdonisJS is a Node.js framework that highly values developer productivity and speed over being a 3KB library. From outside, it may look like a yet another Node.js framework. However, we hold contrarian views in the Node.js/Javascript community.

In a nutshell, AdonisJS is

  • A fully featured MVC framework.
  • It supports Typescript as a first class citizen.
  • It comes with bunch of first class modules to speed up your development time.
  • It has awesome documentation.

Why Node.js community needs AdonisJS?

Most of the frameworks have no philosophy, goals and the audience they are trying to serve. AdonisJS is different and has clear set of goals.

You may have seen many frameworks/libraries using keywords like super fast, 3kb alternative and zero dependency. Well, we are not obsessed with all these keywords and neither our value proposition is to become a 3KB framework.

On the other hand, we highly believe in integrated systems and feel that Node.js community is still missing a framework similar to Rails, Laravel or Django.

Yes, many frameworks claims to be the Rails of Node.js, but if you look deeper, they are just glorified wrappers on top of ExpressJS. Can you point me to the frameworks, that comes with:

  • It's own SQL ORM?
  • Authentication system?
  • Mailing library?
  • Embedded command line like Rails console or Laravel artisan?

If you think, you can download these libraries as independent packages from npm, then sorry, we have different values. In theory pulling packages from npm sounds great, but making them work together with each other gracefully requires effort. Effort, that has no pay off to your business.

What value do I get by supporting you?

Donations can only work, if they make both the sides happy. Following is list of tiers with the value they provide.

$10 - Supporter

You can begin with a $10 monthly support to ensure that framework is actively built and maintained.

The Patreon club members gets exclusive access to the Slack group. The Slack group is less crowded and gives me the opportunity to answer your questions quickly.

If you or your team is using AdonisJS and want to get quick answers to your queries, then please consider becoming a club member.

Please note: This is not customer support, it's simply a less crowded private slack channel, where I am mostly active. I may not be available during vacations or may not be able to solve your queries right away.

This tier includes everything from the $50 tier as well.

$500 - Lets Hangout

If you consider donating $500 and above, then we can have a monthly catch up one to one call. I will be more than happy to answer your queries and also share updates around the framework like, what new is coming, what are we planning to change or improve.

This tier includes everything from the $250 tier as well.

Do you work full time on AdonisJS?

Yes, I went full-time on AdonisJS in July,2020, with the hopes to rapidly improve the framework and monetize it, so that I can continue working on it over finding a job.
Goals
$1,695.18 of $3,500 per month
If I reach the 100% mark, I will be able to work fulltime on the framework and other open source projects to create the value for everyone.
