@joshs On the off chance it hasn't crossed your mind yet, I think Freeter is an excellent candidate for the open core business model. If you look into it, you'll find a ton of criticism about it not being truly open source (which, duh), but it's almost as if they take that to mean that it is the complete opposite of open source. Example. Ridiculous.
I think an open core model could be a win-win for everyone.
I'm picturing Freeter as open-source, while still requiring a license to use more than however many projects. There are plenty of other potential power user features that could be licensed only, while still keeping a usable product free for users with lesser needs.
Imagine Freeter lovers having the ability to create and share a plugin for a product that they otherwise need the web app widget to use. I hate having to login into Todoist, GitHub, Trello, etc. everytime I open Freeter. Just about everything I have this problem with has a great API, and I would love to make and share these on GitHub. For a small development team, it's fantastic how many third-party developers are willing to share the load and pitch in on issues, feature requests, discussions, and make pull requests for the software they love and use every day. Dev's who love Freeter would be glad to have that ability, myself included.
I think this would make not only a better product for users but also open it up to more exposure.
I'd hope that this would result in higher revenue for you, allowing you to hire customer support, marketers, more developers, etc. while ensuring a well-maintained project for users.
So, there's a thought. Whatever route you take, I'm glad you're onboard with Freeter. It sounds like you might just be the person for the job. Best of luck!
