Scarf aims to help open-source developers distribute and financially support their work, especially when used commercially. By creating a distribution channel for software that enables free access for anyone, but incentivizes companies to pay for commercial use, we end up with a business model to compensate developers without sacrificing the open nature of their code. Fostering a more effective business model for open-source results in better software for everyone, and more accountability and reliability for those who need it.
We care deeply about OSS and want to make it better for everyone. If you want to tell us how we're doing, how Scarf could be better, or anything else at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
