Open Source: update summer ’23
GitHub bulk sponsoring
GitHub added support for bulk sponsoring a few months ago and this has really helped us to support the projects we depend on. Thanks to this, we were able to switch from sponsoring a few select individuals on a monthly basis to sponsoring as many as possible.
This means that we now give a small amount ($1) for many, instead of a larger amount for just a few projects.
To make this process a bit easier still, we wrote some glue scripts and made these available to everyone as a template repository: https://github.com/mrhenry/github-bulk-sponsoring.
We are now sponsoring 114 organizations and maintainers through GitHub.
A very large chunk of what we write is CSS and we love tools that help us with this. We recently created a few Stylelint plugins that might help you as well. These linters keep our CSS aligned for all our (new and older) projects, by applying a convention which took shape over the course of years.
Find our plugins on our GitHub: https://github.com/mrhenry/stylelint-mrhenry.
core-web reached the v1.0.0 milestone a while back and we continue to update it regularly with the latest polyfills from polyfill.io. The most recent addition is a polyfill for “HTMLFormElement.prototype.requestSubmit”
