About Sindre Sorhus

Hey, I'm Sindre 🦄

I love open source. For more than 4 years I've been working on open source full-time, 8-12 hours a day, while living off savings. I'm on Patreon now as 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.

See all my amazing supporters

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
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
Pure - Pretty, minimal, and fast ZSH prompt
modern-normalize - Normalize browsers' default style
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.

If you want to do a one-time donation, see my donate page.
I'm also on Open Collective.

Thank you for your support! 🙌
