I’ve worked on and maintained the postgres driver for node.js for over 8 years. 🐘 I will continually work to keep bugs squashed, up to date with new node versions and language features, more documentation, and better performance and tooling!

If you use node.js and connect to PostgreSQL, Amazon Redshift, or Cockroach DB you almost certainly use my work, and that's awesome! 🎉 Maintaining these modules, writing documentation, responding to issues, and working on features takes a lot of my time, and I'm looking for a way to afford more time on these core pieces of the node.js ecosystem.

My focus for 2020 will be on a few key areas, including

  • Continually responding to issues, PRs, emails, and DMs with answers to your questions! 🔨
  • Shipping a major version which drops support for some deprecated APIs, increases security defaults, and modernizes the code base as we're able to use newer node features. 🌠
  • Query pipe-lining and performance benchmarks. ☎️
  • Fleshing out the documentation with your help! 📰

Any funds given will be used by me to support myself and allow me to spend more time working on node-postgres. Every dollar given will be "earned" back by me on an hourly basis as I put those hours towards the project. Thank you so much for your interest in the project, and I hope your journey with PostgreSQL and node.js is long, prosperous, and fun!

Thanks for stopping by! 👋
