Thanks for answering my question!
I have a pile of open source.
HTML5 devs know me from my Ragatron project. It was partly inspired by LDG games and the chapter of my HTML5 book that talks about node-webkit. It gets so few downloads. I don’t want to call it abandoned it. I can confirm at least a few more LDG sales from it though.
I get a hits from personal finance sites for Pay Down Calc project. Everybody likes the site. I eventually just open sourced it because I could never figure out a way to monetize it.
Packet Sender is by far my most popular open source project.
The latest version (from July) is averaging 340 daily downloads. Professors in colleges around the world are handing out Packet Sender-based assignments to their students. Multi-billion dollar companies are including screenshots of Packet Sender in their reference manuals.
Donations are infrequent. It’s enough to pay for hosting. Perhaps I should go Patreon to make the income more reliable, but sometimes I go months without touching it. Doing custom gigs to customize the app can make decent money, but I already have a real job, and those gigs are also infrequent.
Very impressive Dan! That’s one of the more polished-looking and popular open source packages I’ve seen.
