Sponsors

With git//scale, your donations are transparently distributed among the developers that contribute, based on their merit.

Plus, because on git//scale every project, developer and issue has its own balance, you can set specific donation terms, such as funding a specific developer to work only on a specific project.

What's git//scale?

git//scale is a code analytics SaaS platform that adds an economic incentive to Open Source projects, which typically enjoy higher levels of maintenance and shorter issue turnaround times to the enterprise customers that use them.
In a nutshell, we cascade down to developers the donations that projects receive, in a way that's nearly hassle free for the project's maintainers.

The Usual Open Source Workflow

We want to change the way Open Source is funded, not the way code is collaboratively built. If it's perfect, don't fix it.

No More Manual Setup of Bounties

Just choose how you want to reward your contributors, let them submit their pull requests, merge them, and gs// will work its magic and reward each contribution.

GitHub Integration

If you're on GitHub, you're just one click away from git//scale. If you install our Chrome Extension, you can set up repositories on gs//, fund repositories, fund developers, invite your friends and more.

Fair Allocation of Donations

Because donations are allocated according to the contribution of each developer, there's less administrative overhead and more fairness.

Balances at Each Level

Every entity on gs// - repositories, issues, and users - have a running balance on the platform, that is dynamically updated with donations and code contributions.

Open Source Licenses

We aim to give developers incentives without touching the licenses supporting the Open Source freedoms.

Team

Founded in 2018, we're a young, multi-disciplinary team based in Porto, Portugal. Mixing software development, product management, UX, business and legal expertise, and having previous startup experience, we focus on building scalable solutions to concrete problems through technology, design, business and legal.
