Free, open source software moves the world forward. But it doesn’t pay the bills. One of the age old stories of the OSS world is the struggle that maintainers of even popular codebases face when prioritizing their time between the code they love maintaining and the code that pays.
This of course isn’t a one sided story. Many businesses and individuals would gladly pay for for access to the codebases they depend on being maintained. But without a legitimate means of doing so, they simply cant.
It seems wrong to us that developers are forced to make those kinds of decisions, and even more wrong that brilliant coders who simply want to write and maintain code have few options available outside of joining a software company, or becoming an indie maker
Your code as a service.
With Gitstore, you can securely sell access to your private repositories and earn an income from the people and businesses who use your code. You can sell your code on your terms - licensing, donations, or subscriptions. And after a few minutes of setup, you can run your business from the command line.
We’re closing the gap between writing code and getting paid.
