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
  (6th most starred repo on GitHub)
AVA - JavaScript test runner
XO - JavaScript linter
Chalk - Colorize terminal output in Node.js
  (3rd most depended upon npm package)
Refined GitHub - Makes GitHub better for power-users
Caprine - Privacy-focused desktop app for Facebook Messenger
Gifski - Convert videos to high-quality GIFs on your Mac
Got - High-quality HTTP request client for Node.js
np - A better way to publish npm packages and updates
electron-store - Simple data persistence for your Electron app
Touch Bar Simulator - Use the Touch Bar on any Mac
Pure - Pretty, minimal, and fast ZSH prompt
modern-normalize - Normalize browsers' default style
react-extras - Useful components & utilities for working with React
sass-extras - Useful utilities for working with Sass
And many more…

You can read more about me in an interview in "Between the Wires" and my AMA.

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

Thank you for your support! 🙌

Goals
$3,532 of $4,000 per month
If this goal is met, I can spend less time thinking about money and private monetization channels (e.g. taking on consulting contracts, paid apps, etc) outside of work hours and instead spend that time on educational content that would benefit the community, for example, blog posts, screencasts, etc.
