If you find the stuff I've made saves you time and money, please consider sponsoring me. Every contribution is very much appreciated. Regardless, I hope you keep using (and enjoying) my work. Cheers!
Why is your stuff not paid in the first place?
So, for PHP Monitor, I know I struggled at the start to wrap my head around everything related to Homebrew and PHP configuration files and locations. I thought: this could use a better UI.
I also understood that not everyone in the world can afford all these software subscriptions and licenses, I know I couldn't when I started out as a student!
In order to make the app more accessible to everyone in the world, I decided to make the app free. It also saves me the hassle of setting up license management, validation — allowing me to focus on more important features.
Why should I send you money?
To make continued open source contributions possible. You can become one of many people have helped support the further development of PHP Monitor and related open source work.
If you save time by using my open-sourced work, I have provided value to you or your company. If I was able to help you out with support or have fixed an issue you reported, the same applies.
If I was able to provide value to you, I don't think it's entirely silly to think that it might be worth supporting my projects.
If you are unable to contribute financially, that's totally fine. No one is required to sponsor me, it is completely optional. If you would still like to help me out, then please spread the word about PHP Monitor. Thank you!
