Supporting Processwire module authors


Recommended Posts

Many members of the community create modules that are very helpful for me and others and offer great support for these modules.

We can offer our appreciation with a thanks in a forum post etc.. which is great and gives a feel good factor.. but to create and support modules can take a great deal of time and energy and with this in mind I was thinking how it would be nice if we could show our appreciation by having the opportunity donate beer money to authors of modules that we use.

How about if a donate button is displayed on each module page so that donations could be made to the author of the module?

I think there was a discussion about this some time ago in a thread here. While I quite like the ideas, I see some challenges that comes with this approach

  • Who is handling the payment? What about taxes? How to "book" this income?
  • How exactly should they work? Flattr? Paypal Donate?
  • Why not just leave it up to the Developer, to include a Donate Link in his/her description?

And I'm not sure if that many people would donate after all. If we/Ryan spent about 20-30 hours building the donate function and we only collect 200-300 Dollards in Donation after all..... - better build another great module :)

Well, I recently added a Donation button to my SEO module: 


I think that is a decent solution as you only see it if you scroll to the bottom of the module's setting page.

(And I added a "Buy me a beer" link to my signature at the forum as you see below).

that'd be hard for me, since Paypal is not supported in my country, its why freelance hasn't even been an option available to me so i just give free for what's worth. is there any Module I can pick and use to learn got a hard time grasping module development.
