Used by many
Every month, Husky is downloaded 7M times, used by 150k+ projects like webpack, babel, create-react-app, etc... and in many companies.
While simple tools may seem simple to maintain, it's often not the case.
Husky being used in so many configurations (GUI clients, Git worktees, submodules, project subdirectories, version managers, package managers, Linux, MacOS, Windows, ...) requires care and regular tweaks to follow new trends.
By backing the project, you're ensuring that Husky gets security, features, refinements, ... updates.
