Pixela is accepting support by Patreon.

Funding from supporters is used to develop, renovate and maintain for Pixela.

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a crowdfunding platform that has been available since 2013.

This is an external web service that is different from Pixela.

How to support Pixela by Patreon

If you can support Pixela with Patreon, you can do the following:

  1. Create a Patreon Account.
  2. Press the Become a patron button on Pixela Patreon Site to proceed.
  3. If you see the page Thank you for your support !!, you have registered for support.

Is there anything in return for support?

Once Patreon has registered for Pixela support, an email will be sent automatically to the email address registered with your Patreon account.

This email contains a special code called thanks-code.

By setting this code to Pixela's User property, so some limited function can be used. For example, the following request:

$ curl -X PUT -H 'X-USER-TOKEN:yourtoken' -d '{"thanksCode":"ThisIsThanksCode"}'

What kind of limited features are available?

As of 2019-05-05, the features available only to users with a valid thanks-code are:


Please understand that it is only support for the development team. Please understand that thanks-code itself, and the advantage you gain from using thanks-code on Pixela is a bonus.

Only user who can agree to these things should become patrons. Thanks.


  • Q. What if I stop my support?
    • A. Because Pixela is automatically linked with Patreon, limited function will not be available when you stop supporting it. The refund policy, etc. conforms to the Patreon specification.
  • Q. Is it possible to resume support again after stopping it once?
    • A. Yes, it is possible.
  • Q. I can change the amount of support tier by Patreon's features. Are there any problems if you do?
    • A. There is no problem, but it is not currently planned to change the benefits of Pixela.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
