Become a sponsor to The Etherpad Foundation

The Etherpad Foundation funds and maintains the popular collaborative editing software "Etherpad". Our goal is to promote web-based real time collaboration.

Etherpad is developer friendly yet mature, it is an accessible project for new developers so has a large community of contributors and users.

Etherpad can be extended to provide various additional functionality through an extensive plugin framework. The Etherpad Foundation maintains some of these plugins.

Etherpad is a suitable choice for developers building learning platforms and collaboration platforms as we provide a drop in solution and handle the heavy lifting of providing real time document editing.

Etherpad is the only collaborative editor that provides truly honest fidelity upon export. This means that it is often a suitable choice for NGOs and legal workers when required to provide audited reports of document edits as no history can ever be lost.

6 sponsors are funding ether’s work.
