Hello there. Would you pay, let's say 10 dollars to have issues solved for the plugins you use/like? submitted by
I would like to see if there are people willing to pay for such. If there is anyone willing, I would like to take a look at the problem (GitHub issue or a comment describing the issue) and if I am able to get a PR merged you just need to send me 10 dollars in a bitcoin wallet.
It does not need to be an issue at flutteflutter or flutteplugins. It can be for any plugin repository that public available. I would write tests, update libraries, try to fix bugs or even implement some minor feature. You could follow and review the PR if you wish.
Many plugin repositories need some love, even if you can't contribute opening PRs because you lack time or knowledge you could support the plugin development with a relatively small value. 10 dollars, hardly pay a working hour of a developer, but with that you can support a plugin and help flutter plugin ecosystem to evolve.
Edit: I am not proposing this for the money itself, GitCoin, BountySource and others are not options. In part, this proposal is to help projects that are struggling to keep running/updated. The 10 dollars is a symbolic value to ensure that there is a real value in the problem being solved.
Hi Namecoin-ers! Long time bitcoin miner here, but very excited about Namecoins potential. Hence my desire to merge mine Namecoin and provide support. submitted by
I merge mine with many other coins currently, so very familiar with the process. However, I don't see any windows binaries available for the mining version (older version) of Namecoin.
Anyone have a link to download? Anyone want to earn a fee BTC by compiling the github posting for me?
Cheers! Go Namecoin 👍🏻
Influenced by some recent posts, I have decided to outline some ideas I've written about monetarily sustaining Emacs development.
Emacs is amazing software. Although not without its shortcomings, there are many things that Emacs gets right. One of the best things(if not the best) about Emacs is the community. With the latest developments in text editing being "Let's put the editor in the browser!" and "Let's rewrite stuff", let's take a look at packages that came about in the Emacs world:
- Magit. It is truly git porcelain. It makes me enjoy git.
- Projectile: Abstraction on top of your file system for a kickass project management? Yes please.
- Interactive searches on top of any structure inside Emacs? There are too many awesome packages to name.
- Awesome pre-build configs? Pick your flavor.
And there are many old and new ones including org, fireplace.el, lispy, cider, and so forth.
Writing and maintaining these packages is no simple task. Not only does it require creativity and ingenuity to come up with better ways of pressing on keys, it also requires understanding Emacs and its API(not easy) and being a good Emacs Lisp programmer(not easy).
Not to mention the core maintainers and developers. While I might not agree with certain opinions, I admire the amount of work and soul they put into this project.
So how do we, as a community, support it?
Monetarily, not well.
It's hard to find stats on how much money is donated through FSF(more on that later), let's examine publically available information on how much money is donated to emacs projects:
Magit - 244 dollars a month.[https://www.patreon.com/tarsius
] Projectile - 17$ a month on bontysource, 8$ a month of gratipay [https://www.bountysource.com/teams/projectile/members
] Helm - [https://www.patreon.com/emacshelm
] 6% a month on patreon.
and so forth. I find it shameful, and I wish for it to change.
Before I move forward with the post, I'd like to play some devil advocate with myself:
"I support projects by writing packages and making contributions" - sure, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't be rewarded for your contribution.
"This is a problem with Libre Software in general - there's little incentive in people to pay for it" - true, but I think we can also smooth certain corners. More on that below.
"Well, what have you done to change this?" - Nothing. I'm the worst of both worlds, haven't contributed anything in terms of code or money to the community. That's not the point.
"People do it for fun and not for money" - again, doesn't mean they shouldn't be rewarded.
I look at this selfishly. Emacs has been attracting some top-notch guys that do some incredible things, and I want them to stay there working on the editor that I use.
But alas, so far I have contributed 0$ in support.
I see myself spending anywhere around 100$ supporting the Emacs community for what I already have access for and maybe setting up monthly contributions if I believe that these money goes to further work on my editor.
So why haven't I donated so far? While it is true that there are market failures that are characteristic of any open-source market, there are certain transaction costs that could be brought down with the kind of brainpower this community has.
Firstly, let's take a look at supporting Emacs core. There's actually no way to do that I could find. You can donate to FSF project in general here, and while it is certainly worthy of your money to support the non-profit and their cause, I have following concerns(controversial):
For my reasons, I don't use/know of many of the projects that FSF owns/supports. I use Emacs, and I wish to donate to Emacs. I believe FSF is missing out on valuable information when they make one big sink donation called "Support Free Software". How do you know which projects are needed by the users and which ones are not? It's akin to having an Android phone and instead of it being an open market it is "pay 100$ a year for a bunch of apps". However, the above critique is not enough to justify not supporting their cause, so in writing this post I decided to contribute. I encourage you to do so too.
Emacs core out of the way, Why don't I donate money on Patreon or bountysource or gratipay?
There is, of course, the obvious pain of tracking and setting up accounts and fussling with cards. There's the feeling that "It'll be fine", or "I'll do it some other time". So let's think how can we make a monkey with a short attention span like me to actually donate for his/her editor.
When I find the desire to donate, I would like to donate for my entirety of Emacs experience - starting from Emacs Core and Magit to fireplace.el and tetris. I desire to mentally figure out a sum that I'm willing to donate(let's say 70$), a period of time(one-time or recurring), and spend as little time doing so.
The way things are right now, the above is not possible. Time for some self-made criticism again.
"You are just a lazy fuck. Invest some time in your day and pay some money. How much time a working day you spend messing around with your config? Wouldn't you want to more
things to mess with?"
I fully agree. There's little excuse.
However, we are not done examining my editor yet - the vast majority of packages I use do not
have a donation page at all.
Given all of the above, I started writing a system that would alleviate some of my concerns.
My first idea was the donate-emacs package/website combo. By installing(or just distributing with emacs) a donate-emacs package, it would parse your package-alist and make a post request to the donate-emacs server. It would then parse generate a page that looks something like this
and presents you with dials customizing how you want to donate - one-time payment, once in a period, etc.
This quickly presented the following problems:
Suppose they donate money, how should they be transferred to contributors/maintainers?
- Magit has something like over 100 contributors. Registering 100 bank accounts for users is silly. Measure it by commit numbers? Transfer the money to maintainer and let them do their thing? I'm not sure I can figure out the right way on my own.
- Setting up credit card payments is a pain. These are donations that are supposed to be going to different bank accounts - and it's already a pain in the ass setting up a credit card system for one bank account(which would be mine and no one would donate money that way).
After some time, I decided in the making that I should manage cryptocurrency payments only - they are far easier to manage and don't present the third party problem inherent to credit cards.
That is when I realized, why bother with websites at all? My potential users are Emacs users - if something can be done within Emacs why not do so? Why not make improvements to package-list that would include the interface I've outlined above? A user would pull the list of packages installed, press some C-c bindings to register a Bitcoin wallet and setup the donations however they want, and manage it anytime from emacs.
Hence, I started to write wallet.el to manage cryptocurrencies within Emacs.
This approach quickly presented problems too. It's easy to setup a Bitcoin wallet somewhere on some website and then forward the money from it to some Bitcoin address, but I haven't found an API or a cli that I could use that I would be able to do the above from emacs.
So, I admit I'm way over my head and have decided to reach out. I know literally next to nothing about bitcoins and cryptocurrencies, and I haven't even finished reading through the Emacs manuals yet. Besides, I'm not even sure if the above is the right way to do it.
