I'm currently focussed on improving the open-source/free software Android for Maven Eclipse (or m2e-android) plugin.

This helpful binary-blob sits between the Eclipse IDE and the Android Development Tools. It uses the popular Maven build tool to make it, well, a lot easier to create your own Android apps.

Which is why I need your help.

Unfortunately, due to Real Life commitments (like my full-time job, don't they suck?) progress has been in stops and starts over the years. Months can go between releases.

So?

So that's where you come in: I'm hoping to use Patreon to crowdfund major or minor releases so I can dedicate more of my time doing what I love (working on open source).

What do you get?

Funding me means delivering more new features, faster to you. Which will power your own Android app development.

You'll get minor, bug fix releases free and I'll only charge at most once per month. So, if I publish two or more feature releases a month, you'll get the additional ones free too! Sweet!

So if you're using m2e-android to create Android apps please ask your company to patronise me. Or maybe consider giving few dollars per release yourself.
