re: Google to pay JavaScript frameworks to implement performance-first code VIEW POST

VIEW FULL DISCUSSION
 

The Web needs all the performance it can get. The current web projects are horrible at this chapter. Electron apps eating GB of memory, browser extensions hundreds, and the avg count of requests per site I think it got over 100?

I don't see the division happening, who does not want performance first features? Probably the RAM manufacturers.

 

In regards to division, I didn't mean a division over performance. I meant JS open source or open source in general in regards to $$$. I should have made that more clear.

 

I agree with Adam Rackis (tweet in initial post) that companies that use packages like Babel, should be contributing $$$ cash to them.

It's a drop in the pond, but I donate to @hzoo 's Patreon for this reason.

No they should not. The might want to, they might indeed do, but they should not. Otherwise it’s not OSS anymore, it’s another kind of business sucking money from giants.

companies donating to OSS do not immediately invalidate them being OSS by any means

I think the point was that companies that use OSS shouldn't be immediately expected/required to give money to those projects. It's nice if they do, but it is their choice.

comments farther up in the thread were in agreement, but I was specifically highlighting

they should not. Otherwise it’s not OSS anymore

Well, I meant it is up to these companies.
They could, and that it fine. They are not obliged.
