Hi there, my name is Pine and I'm part of Vue.js core team. I used to work on VS Code at Microsoft, but I left and is now living nomadically and doing independent study/research. My Open Source effort focuses Vetur, a Vue.js editor extension for VS Code. Your sponsorship will help me continue its development and benefit millions of Vue/Vetur users.

Today, Vetur has 5.5 million downloads and is one of the most popular editor extensions. With auto-completion, diagnostic error, code navigation and many other IDE features, Vetur makes reading and writing Vue Single File Component a smooth experience. The core features of Vetur are published to vls, and reused by Vue.js plugins in Atom, Sublime Text, Vim/Neovim, Emacs and CodeSandbox. In short, if you write Vue.js, you have likely benefited from Vetur.

Developing language servers takes a lot of effort and developing Vetur is especially challenging. Other than implementing language support for Vue.js, I spend significant amount of time making HTML, CSS, SCSS, Less, Stylus, JavaScript and TypeScript work seamlessly in Vue.js Single File Components.

I also use Vetur as a playground to test new ideas that push the boundary of web development experience. For example:

On the one hand, I aim to make writing Vue.js simple and approachable. By offering auto-completion and diagnostic errors, users write Vue.js faster and with more confidence.

On the other hand, I try to build tooling necessary for developing large-scale Vue.js projects. For example, Vue Prop Type Validation type-checks prop usage in Vue templates, and VTI makes it possible to integrate Vetur's interpolation type-checking feature into Continuous Integration systems, catching template errors that's otherwise uncatchable.

Developing Vetur takes a significant slice of my time and energy. Your sponsorship will make my continued development of Vetur more sustainable. Thank you 🙏.
