I'm Gordon Williams, the creator and main developer of Espruino.
But it's not just the interpreter - there's an IDE too, command-line tools, documentation, tutorials, code libraries, thriving forum, and more.
Why do I need your support?
Espruino development and support takes a lot of time - in fact all my time. I wrote my first line of code for Espruino 5 years ago, and for the past 4 years I've been working on it full-time.
I write the software, design hardware, write documentation, and most importantly I answer Espruino's users in the forum. So far, I've supported myself with the money from KickStarter campaigns, by selling boards with Espruino pre-installed, and with the odd bit of consultancy work.
However, Espruino is Open Source and will run on a huge variety of hardware, which brings in no income for me. At the end of 2016, two thirds of my users were using Espruino on this other hardware. However, questions and support for these other users takes time, as does maintaining a codebase that supports Over 40 different pieces of hardware without inadvertently breaking things.
There's so much more I have planned that I'm struggling to find time for because I have to focus on things that will pay me a salary. Please support me on Patreon, and let's see what we can do together, for all boards that run Espruino - not just the ones that I sell!
