Become a sponsor to Matt Holt

Hello! πŸ‘‹

I'm a full-time open source developer.

My open source projects...

  • make the Web safer and more private.
    • Caddy is the only web server to use HTTPS automatically and by default
    • CertMagic is a Go library that provisions and manages TLS certificates for servers
    • ACMEz is a fully-compliant RFC 8555 (ACME) implementation in pure Go
  • make developer lives easier.
    • PapaParse is a JavaScript library that parses CSV files
    • JSON-to-Go converts JSON to Go structs
    • curl-to-go converts curl commands to Go code
    • Archiver is a Go library for working with archive formats
    • libdns is a set of universal DNS record manipulation APIs
  • preserve personal and family history.
    • Timeliner downloads all your digital life onto a single timeline, stored locally
  • are often used in humanitarian and non-profit efforts.

My primary work is the Caddy web server. Caddy has:

  • πŸ“„ ~5 million TLS certificates under management
  • ⏬ 10 million downloads
  • 🐳 100 million Docker pulls
  • πŸ” 800 billion TLS connections secured
  • πŸ“ˆ 4.5 TRILLION ‼️ HTTPS requests served

That's a lot of public good for a free project maintained by ~1 developer! Thankfully, Caddy has over 300 contributors. But coordinating that effort takes a lot of time and energy, so I now accept sponsorships to help fund ongoing maintenance of my projects.

Your sponsorships make a difference because although open source work can be satisfying, it is often a drain on mental, emotional, and physical energy. In addition to making full-time development possible, sponsors provide much-needed relief, leading to happier, healthier, less-stressed developers.

My goals for my projects are:

  1. Make a lasting, positive impact
  2. Foster a sense of community and goodwill
  3. Improve your quality of life
