Insiders

Capawesome follows the sponsorware release strategy, that enables developers to be compensated for their open-source work with fewer downsides than traditional open-source funding models. This means that new plugins are first exclusively released to sponsors as part of Insiders.

What is Insiders?

As an Insider, you get access to a private GitHub repository, which serves as a NPM registry and contains all sponsorware plugins.

Every plugin is tied to a funding goal in monthly subscriptions. When a funding goal is hit, the plugins that are tied to it are released for general availability, making them available to all users.

What's in it for me?

The moment you become an insider, you'll get immediate access to additional plugins that you can start using right away, and which are currently exclusively available to sponsors:

New plugins are added every other month. Be sure to come back.

How to become an Insider

Thanks for your interest in sponsoring! In order to become an eligible sponsor with your GitHub account, visit the Capawesome sponsor profile, and complete a sponsorship that includes the perk Access to our Sponsorware. You can use your individual or organization GitHub account for sponsoring.

Note

If you sponsored as an organization or have sponsorship-related questions, please drop us a short message at support@capawesome.io. Also please note that custom one-time sponsorships cannot be granted access to our sponsorware due to technical reasons.

Terms

All sponsorware plugins are licensed under the terms of the MIT license.
However, we kindly ask you to respect our fair use policy:

  • Please don't distribute the source code of the sponsors-only repository. You may freely use it for public, private or commercial projects, privately fork or mirror it, but please don't make the source code public, as it would counteract the sponsorware strategy.
  • If you cancel your subscription, you're automatically removed as a collaborator and will miss out on all future updates. However, you may use the latest version that's available to you as long as you like.

Frequently asked questions

Access

We are a team of developers. Do we all get access to the sponsorware?

Due to administrative reasons, we can only grant access to the sponsorware to one GitHub account per sponsor. We therefore recommend that teams use a shared GitHub account for the sponsorware. This GitHub account is only used to create the access tokens. All other tasks can still be performed with the team members' individual GitHub accounts.
