Emacs helm

is creating Emacs editor extensions




per month


Emacs helm is a set of extensions for the text editor Emacs.

It is an Emacs framework for incremental completions and narrowing selections. It helps to rapidly complete file names, buffer names, or any other Emacs interactions requiring selecting an item from a list of possible choices. From those lists, any actions are possible like grep etc...
It is a must have for any developer using the emacs text editor and also for new users wanting to use Emacs as it makes it easier to begin with.

I spent a lot of time developing and maintaining this software since 2011.
I am also developing several other emacs extensions, see Thierry Volpiatto on github.

$243 of $500 per month
Actually developing Helm became a real constraint due to the time I had to take on it, not speaking on the time I spent on other packages like Async.
I was waiting the release of version 3.0 which is now stable to stop adding features and make only critical bug fixes if needed.
With enough financial support, I could start back working on it more serenely, delegating enough time for making the code base better, improving performances, fixing the bugs related to incompatible Emacs changes etc...

The more money I will collect the more time will be available to work on Helm and the sooner I will start back working seriously,
for now only basic maintenance will be done.

Thanks for your understanding.
