About

Hey, I'm Sindre. I have been doing open source since 2012 and I still cannot get enough of it. In 2014, I quit my office job to backpack around Southeast Asia while doing open source. I have been doing open source full-time since then, 8-12 hours a day, while living off savings. My savings are slowly running out and I need your help to continue my open source efforts.

I actively maintain 1100+ npm packages (2 billion downloads a month) and many popular projects. You're probably depending on some of my packages in your dependency tree. For example, Webpack relies on 101 of my packages and Babel relies on 144 of my packages.

If you or your company use any of my projects or like what I’m doing, please consider backing me so I can continue maintaining and evolving these projects and new ones.

Some of my projects include:

Awesome - Collaborative lists on many different topics (100k+ stars and 6th most starred repo on GitHub)

AVA - JavaScript test runner

XO - JavaScript linter

Chalk - Colorize terminal output in Node.js (3rd most depended upon npm package)

Refined GitHub - Makes GitHub better for power-users

Caprine - Privacy-focused desktop app for Facebook Messenger

Gifski - Convert videos to high-quality GIFs on your Mac

Got - High-quality HTTP request client for Node.js

np - A better way to publish npm packages and updates

electron-store - Simple data persistence for your Electron app

Touch Bar Simulator - Use the Touch Bar on any Mac

ky - Tiny and elegant HTTP client based on the browser Fetch API

And many more…

You can read more about me in an interview in "Between the Wires" and my AMA.

  Thank you for your support! 🙌
