Phalcon/Zephir Funding Campaign

flag Questions

Hey Community,

Header

Header

Since 3 years we have been working on Phalcon trying to improve it and move forward with the resources we have. Most of the work has been done in our spare time and with the great help of the community.

In the last year, due to our jobs and other responsibilities, progress in Phalcon has been a little bit slower, we would like this to change next year.

We are launching a campaign in Pledgie to promote the development of the framework and its sub-projects in order to bring Phalcon where we all want.

Following is the summary of the campaign:

We are asking for 30,000 USD (~2,500 USD/month) that will be employed during the following year, at this ti some donations were already made, thanks to the donors for their assistance and support!. If you want to help, please support this project by donating to it. Donations of any size are gratefully accepted. We hope to soon reach 35% (10,500.00 USD) of the goal to create a non-profit organization and hire developers.

How will we use this money?

Phalcon/Zephir goals

Allow us to pay 1-2 fully-dedicated core developers for a year Develop the most popular requests from the community on Github in a short and realistic time frame Provide high-quality answers and support in forums and StackOverflow Release new versions constantly Provide a LTS (Long Term Support) version focused on the enterprise Phalcon specific goals

Improve documentation covering a larger number of subjects in depth Create more tutorials and examples focused on a novice, intermediate and advanced audience Extend test-suite achieving greater coverage and increasing framework quality Zephir specific goals

Finish the implementation of a JIT compiler for Zephir to facilitate testing and debugging of software created in this language Create a debugger that facilitates the development of extensions in this language Increase the number of backends that currently Zephir supports Support future versions of PHP and maintain backwards compatibility with already released PHP versions Extend and improve the test-suite to verify what has been built also works.

    No this is not an all or nothing campaign. If we reach the goal set in Pledgie, that means that two developers will be solely working on Phalcon and thus the development will be much faster.

    I take myself as an example, the last few months have been very very busy (see my github contributions are minimal to none). Before that I did have time to work on the project. It is the way it goes I'm aftraid with open source projects
