My name is Eric Ridge. I'm the primary developer of ZomboDB and pgx

ZomboDB brings powerful text-search and analytics features to Postgres by using Elasticsearch as an index type. Its comprehensive query language and SQL functions enable new and creative ways to query your relational data.

pgx, on the other hand, brings the power and efficiency and safety of Rust to PostgreSQL by allowing you to write your own PostgreSQL extensions in Rust.

Sponsoring me, and by extension ZomboDB, at any tier, will allow me to continue ZomboDB development in not only the usual, boring ways, but also new and exciting ways.

I've structured the tiers in such a way as to best provide support for any demands you may have. The lower tiers mainly allow us to continue to work on the project, but won't allow us to dedicate time to your specific use case. The funded startup tier allows us to build and verify ZomboDB binary artifacts specifically for your organization. At these tiers we will provide you with a private key to access a verified ZomboDB builds.

For the tiers that include it, an incident report is a ZomboDB or pgx -related question or bug that you need prioritized above all else. It's a blocker for your work and you don't have time to follow the standard open source model of filing issues and waiting for a new release.

We can solve the incident together via email, Discord, phone, or videochat, up to 8hrs of work.

For the tiers with rewards, such as joining our Discord channel, please email me at:
