Neovim operates a campaign to fund ongoing development. This makes it possible for core developers to work full-time for a month or longer, accelerating projects like Lua stdlib, treesitter parser engine, LSP framework, extended marks, embedded terminal, job control, RPC API, and remote UIs. Sponsorship is also used to maintain ongoing infrastructure costs for the Neovim project, such as hosting fees.
Current sponsors are featured in the left column of this page. These are companies or individuals contributing a monthly amount to help support Neovim.
All donations are now managed via open collective, which provides public tracking for all expenses. Bitcoin is regularly deposited into the opencollective account, and a record of all transactions is available via the blockchain explorer. The only donation options for neovim are via GitHub sponsors, open collective, and Bitcoin. All prior funding sources have been transferred into the open collective.
