Working on Nancy has always been a labor of love. We have never thought about charging for commercial use or in any other put up a pay wall that restricts your use of the framework. During the past five years, thousands of hours have been put into making Nancy what is it today and it makes us extremely proud that it is being used in production, all over the world and in a wide range of products.
That said, even though Nancy itself is free to use, the development of it is not. Each hour we spend working on Nancy is an hour less we could have spent working on other personal projects or spending time with friends and family.
As with most project, time is the most valuable commodity we have (apart from domain knowledge!) and its availability varies over time. Our ambition for Nancy is far greater than the time we have at our disposal. Even as little as a couple of hours of extra time, each week, would have a tremendous impact.
It is for this reason we are now turning toward you, our community of existing users, that put Nancy into production and help you ship software. If Nancy adds value to your organization then we would ask for your attention for a couple of minutes and read on about how you can help us keep delivering awesome stuff.
Either way we are going to keep working on Nancy, but together we can take it to another level. We won't be able to do it without your help!
