Hello! I'm @Benjie, the maintainer of PostGraphile, an open source library which generates an instant and super-fast GraphQL API from your PostgreSQL database. I also maintain a number of other related projects in the Node.js, PostgreSQL and GraphQL ecosystems, typically focussing on enabling developers to more-rapidly develop high-performance, stable software; and I contribute to the GraphQL Working Group.

By sponsoring me you'll enable me to spend more time working on these projects, resulting in faster fixes, faster PR merges, and of course easier to use, better documented, more flexible, more powerful and more performant software!

Here are some of the projects I maintain:

  • PostGraphile – high-performance instant GraphQL API for PostgreSQL
  • Graphile Worker – high-performance job queue for PostgreSQL
  • Graphile Migrate – opinionated SQL-native migration system for PostgreSQL focussing on development speed
  • Graphile Engine – datasource-agnostic high-performance GraphQL engine for Node.js with plugins and lookahead functionality
  • pg-sql2 – a powerful SQL-injection-proof query builder with full PostgreSQL support
  • gatsby-source-pg – the easiest way to pull PostgreSQL data into your Gatsby API
  • GraphiQL – the GraphQL IDE
  • mehserve – simple port-sharing proxy: easy URLs for development servers running on different ports; websockets & SSL supported

I also contribute to many other open source projects.

As I'm sure you're aware, there's a lot of work that goes into maintaining an Open Source project — not just the software development, but responding to the issues and chat messages, reviewing pull requests and giving guidance, writing high quality documentation, testing, publishing releases, improving developer experience, and much more. Your financial support enables me to take time off from client work to stay on top of these tasks and keep moving these projects and their communities forward.

Thanks for helping me spend more time making and improving open source software!
