PostHog is an open-source product analytics platform built on top of many other amazing open-source projects. We believe in open-source and the open-core model. However, many open-source projects go underfunded.
We are investing in open-source, not just as a business, but directly via sponsorship in key projects we benefit from every day. We're doing this for three reasons:
- We want valuable open-source projects to continue to be maintained and enhanced
- We fundamentally rely on some open-source projects, and it's essential they continue to be maintained and enhanced
- We believe the PostHog brand will benefit from the sponsorship
In addition to sponsoring key projects, we also provide a $100/month budget for every team member to sponsor projects that have helped them.
Projects we sponsor
This initiative began in September 2021, so it is still in its infancy.
|Project we use||Author||Why does PostHog sponsor||Sponsored via||Amount/month|
|rrweb||yz-yu||Powers our session recording functionality||GitHub Sponsors||$100|
|graphile/worker||benjie||Powering scheduled jobs, retries and other logic for the plugin-server||GitHub Sponsors||$100|
|Django REST Framework||encode||Powers the PostHog REST APIs||Directly||$400|
If you know of a project that is fundamentally important to PostHog, add the project to this page via an edit page suggestion/pull request. We'll then assess the proposal. If we decide to sponsor, we'll set up the sponsorship via either Open Collective or GitHub. Finally, we'll merge the pull request.
