I love open-source. 🌐
And given that open source is so ubiquitous now within the tech industry and basically lays the foundation for all the applications we know and love, you probably should too! 😊
I love sharing everything I’ve worked on without expecting anything in return and I love it when I benefit from others who have done the same.
BUT for far too long (I joined GitHub in 2013), I have been consuming open-source projects and allowed myself to reap all the benefits others have put hard work into. 😓
So I’m finally deciding to put my money where my heart is and start giving back to the open-source community. 💛
I’ve just donated $2 to docsify. Consider donating too, every little helps! https://t.co/x0Gl27qERK
So I’m donating 2 bucks each month indefinitely to future docsify development. I know it’s not a lot in the grand scheme of things but damn, I just got out of college so I’m not rich people. 💸
I actually ended up being the first sponsor for
docsify which describes itself as a “magical documentation site generator”. 🔮
docsify - 🃏 A magical documentation site generator.
Now magical may seem like an exaggeration but
docsify seriously does make it as easy as fuck for anyone with basic knowledge of JS and Markdown to create a beautiful and responsive documentation site.
Hi @fvcproductions thanks for your donation to @cinwell_li https://t.co/REKXb4NjlG 🎉😊
I encourage everyone to pay it forward and make a small donation to your favorite open-source project or docsify just because it’s amazing! 🎉
