Hello, we are @Benjie and @jemgillam, the core team behind PostGraphile, an open source library which generates an instant and super-fast GraphQL API from your PostgreSQL database, and many of the libraries that power it such as graphile-build and pg-sql2. By supporting us via this Patreon you'll enable us to spend more time working on these projects, resulting in faster fixes, faster PR merges, and of course easier to use, better documented, more flexible, more powerful and more performant software!

Benjie has been involved with PostGraphile since August 2016 and took over as the core maintainer mid-2017. There's a lot of work that goes into maintaining an Open Source project — not just the software development, but responding to the issues and chat messages, reviewing pull requests and giving guidance, writing high quality documentation, testing, publishing releases, improving developer experience, and much more. Your support enables us to take time off from contract work to stay on top of these tasks and keep moving the project forward.

Thank you for all your support and contributions to PostGraphile, they are really appreciated! Patreon supporters have already enabled us to:

  • Massively increase PostGraphile performance
  • Create, maintain and constantly improve the documentation website
  • Enhance the plugin API to better support the community plugin developers
  • Implement the powerful Smart Comments system for customising your GraphQL schema
  • Add extension and permission inspection to PostGraphile to help automatically omit things you don't need
  • Massively improve support for the Koa server
  • Overhaul and massively improve our TypeScript support
  • Implement `graphile-utils` - a module to make it much easier to write plugins
  • Overhaul the error system to be a lot more helpful in situations where fields cause clashes
  • Migration and feature guides

You can give any amount from $1/mo up. Anyone who contributes $100/mo or more will be added to our private mailing list for critical security updates.
