Clojurists Together is excited to announce the two projects that are being funded in Q1 2018: clj-http and Figwheel! Recap For those who are new to Clojurists Together, our goal is simple: Fund critical Clojure open-source projects to keep them healthy and sustainable. Clojure companies and individual developers sign up for a monthly contribution, and we pick projects to fund each quarter. This is our first funding cycle since launching.
Welcome to the first Clojurists Together update for 2018! We have recently run a survey on our members to better understand them and their needs. We are currently working in the process of finalising the projects we will fund and will have an announcement soon. In the meantime, we wanted to share the results of the survey to help future applicants see what our areas of focus are. New Members Since our announcement we have had 11 companies and 50 developers join up.
Keeping Clojure open source sustainable The Clojure ecosystem is built on open source. From the Clojure and ClojureScript projects, to the build tools, web frameworks, and the hundreds of innovative and useful libraries that we all depend on every day. The pervasive use of open source has enabled a flourishing Clojure ecosystem, but it also has some hidden downsides. The vast majority of Clojure projects are maintained by a small handful of people, often only one person.
