Code Sponsor

Help sustain open source through ethical advertising

Code Sponsor is a platform that helps open source projects find funding through ethical advertising. Developers get paid by adding one line of code to their project's Readme.

Love this idea! Very clever.

Does the Readme file automatically get updated (I noticed you request Github access), or does the developer manually add the sponsor?

It might be interesting showcasing job listings as well. Companies could target specific repositories or programming languages. Send me a DM on Twitter ( @marckohlbrugge ) if you're interested exploring a partnership with BetaList Jobs :)

Hi Marc,

The developer is completely responsible for adding the line of code to their README. We ask for permissions so 1) we can authenticate them, 2) get list of repositories and 3) pull stats on repos.

Regarding job listings, we agree. It's something we are starting to experiment with. I'll reach out to you.

@codesponsor Cool! Didn't realise this before, but @andreasklinger pointed out on Twitter that you're using a dynamically generated SVG image so you can change the advertiser on-the-fly without needing to update the code. That's smart!

Some interesting commentary here as well: https://twitter.com/marckohlbrugge/status/905463494706733056
