Both Vue.js and Vite are MIT licensed open source projects and completely free to use. The tremendous amount of effort needed to maintain the projects and coordinate the community efforts in the two ecosystems is only made sustainable thanks to the generous financial backing of our sponsors and backers.
Sponsoring as a Business
Sponsoring Vue gives you great exposure to over 1.7 million Vue developers around the world through our website and GitHub project READMEs (see tiers for details), whereas sponsoring Vite gives you reach to a cross-framework group of early adopters in one of the most rapidly growing developer communities. In addition, supporting OSS improves the reputation of your brand, which is an important asset for any company that interacts with developers.
If you are using Vue or Vite to build a revenue-generating product, it makes business sense to sponsor their development: it ensures the projects that your product relies on stays healthy and actively maintained. The exposure and positive brand image in the community also makes it easier to attract and recruit Vue developers.
If you are building a product where your target customers are developers, you will gain high quality traffic through the sponsorship exposure, since all our visitors are developers. The sponsorship also builds brand recognition and improves conversion.
Sponsoring as an Individual
If you are an individual user and have enjoyed the productivity of using Vue or Vite, consider sposnoring me as a sign of appreciation - like buying me coffee once in a while. If you are not comfortable with a monthly-recurring sponsorship, GitHub also supports one-time donations!
You can also try to convince your employer to sponsor Vue or Vite as a business. This may not be easy, but business sponsorships typically make a much larger impact on the sustainability of OSS projects than individual donations, so you will help us much more if you succeed.
