Hi! I’m Thibaud :)


This is me:


I’m an open-source contributor, core developer of Wagtail, specialised in front-end development: React, accessibility, pattern libraries, automation, and more.

If you use Wagtail you probably use something I've contributed to: the new editor Draftail, the explorer menu with React, Awesome WagtailMade with Wagtail, and many more. Over the years I’ve worked on 100 pull requests to Wagtail, from myself and from others.

Why a Patreon?


Towards the end of 2017 I was busy working on Draftail, a new rich text editor for Wagtail. Now Draftail is part of Wagtail and people seem very happy with it, but my day job is no longer related to any of those things. I'm contributing to those projects in my free time, and it isn't sustainable. That’s why I’m asking for your support!

Building and maintaining a rich text editor is a big endeavour. Draftail has a lot of potential to do so much more, and I would love to take it to the next level. I’m also involved with efforts to make Wagtail accessible, and build a Django Girls tutorial extension for Wagtail. All of those things take commitment, and they will happen much, much faster if I can get financial support for this work.



Why should we support you?


If you’re an organisation – you likely benefit from the projects I’m working on. Supporting my work is an occasion for you to contribute to the future of those projects in a very real way: you can steer their direction with me, and ensure they keep getting maintained.

If you’re working on your own – I love to help around open-source projects, I can help you to contribute the things you are working on. With your patronage, I get to keep answering all the questions and reviewing all the pull requests 🌈.

And you could also get very sleek stickers!

How does this work?


It's super simple:

  1. Pledge more than $10 per month to get to vote on what my monthly goals will be.
  2. Pledge more than $50 per month to propose ideas of your own (limited spots).

Voting?


Yup. I don’t want to be building things no one cares about – so let’s decide together what I should aim for on any given month. Eligible patrons will have access to a monthly poll to prioritise proposals. Here is what this could look like – pick the ones you would like to see progress on this month:


Now let’s build great things together!
Tiers

You can vote in the poll to choose what my monthly goals will be!


You will also get access to monthly patron-only posts about how those goals are progressing.

💌 Stickers!

Every 4 months I will send you a small surprise (sticker pack, thank you card, or something different altogether).

📣 Proposal power
$50 or more per month 1 of 3 patrons
You get to vote **and** propose ideas of yours in the poll where I set my monthly goals.


You can propose anything – but I’m more likely to take on a task if it is related to my field or expertise, or if we are collaborating on it together.


You also get the 🗳Voting power described above.

🙋 AMA
$200 or more per month 0 of 2 patrons
Ask Me Anything! I will help you solve the specific problems you’re facing. Point me at GitHub issues or PRs, StackOverflow questions, or any other open format and I’ll do my best to answer 🕵.


You also get the 📣Proposal and 🗳Voting powers described above.

🚧 Half-day workshop
$500 or more per month 0 of 1 patrons
Let’s do something together! We will do a workshop to collaborate on a specific project of yours, every month. This time can be spent on ideation, programming, teaching – pretty much anything I can do professionally.

🌈 Long-term collaboration
$1,000 or more per month 0 of 1 patrons
This is serious money. With this kind of support, we can take on a very ambitious project together. Do you already know what you want to achieve? Let’s talk. Otherwise here are ideas for what we could tackle, based on my specialities:


- Making Wagtail WCAG 2.0 AA compliant.

- Leveraging Wagtail’s capabilities for pattern libraries.

- Organising Wagtail training workshops for your teams.

- Creating automated test suites for your projects.

- Adding full support for MS Word copy-paste to rich text and StreamField


You also get the 📣Proposal and 🗳Voting powers described above.


I can provide an invoice or also contract off Patreon if needed.

Goals
$124 of $250 per month
With $250 per month from the community, I will be able to cover the cost of attending two Wagtail sprints per year.
