Hey, I'm Sindre 🦄
I love open source. For more than 3 years I've been working on open source full-time, 8-12 hours a day, while living off savings. I'm on Patreon now as my savings are slowly running out and I need your help to continue my open source efforts.
I actively maintain 1100+ npm packages (1 billion downloads a month) and many popular projects. You're probably depending on some of my packages in your dependency tree. For example, Webpack relies on 77 of my packages.
If you or your company use any of my projects or like what I’m doing, please consider backing me so I can continue maintaining and evolving these projects and new ones.
See all my amazing supporters ✨
Some of my projects include:
- Awesome - Collaborative lists on many different topics

- Chalk - Colorize terminal output in Node.js

I don't care about money or things but I do need to eat and sleep. Here's a breakdown of my monthly expenses.
