Become a sponsor to Jeff Sagal

👋🏻 Hey! thanks for coming by!

People such as yourself are the reason I love to write open source projects. There's not much I find more fulfilling than solving someone else's problem, or having a positive impact on a persons day to day.

I still remember the morning after launching v1.0 of Vue Select, and my inbox was full of issues from people that had tried it out. The fact that people were using my stuff, and hoping to contribute to it themselves had me over the moon. It was so exciting!

Why Sponsor Me?

I have spent hundreds of hours working on Vue Select since launching v1.0 in March 2016. In that time I've reviewed and merged over 150 pull requests from contributors, responded to over 600 issues, and pushed out more than 40 releases. That's about one release every month since 2016.

That's a lot of issues, pull requests and releases, and each one requires more time than you'd expect. I can't tell you how many times I've been laying in bed, hoping to fall asleep, and instead I'm thinking about the next API I can introduce to make this little component work better in peoples applications.

And I still have more to do! I have a lot of ideas on how to take Vue Select to the next level. Your support helps to support me not just financially, but also mentally. 5+ years spent on any single project can be tough. Knowing that people appreciate the work makes it so much easier!

6 sponsors are funding sagalbot’s work.


I freelance full time, so the opportunity cost of working on open source is pretty high. But I love open source work, and want to do as much of it as I can - even if it doesn't pay the bills. Contributing as a sponsor means that I can take on less freelance work, leaving my schedule a bit more free to fix bugs and ship new features. I would absolutely love to do it full time, so every little bit gets me closer to that dream!
