It's pretty simple. :)
We've been putting time into DB4S for years, it's fairly popular (150k+ downloads every month), and
we'd like to be able
to both work on it full time & have actual lives.
If we can generate sufficient ongoing revenue to make this all work, then yay, everyone wins! :)
Everything is open source (AGPL3 or later).
Nothing held back, no "open core", etc. This is real, actual, proper, Open Source. Not the fake variety. :)
Most of these are still "in development" or will come along later, they're all on our definite To Do list:
|Basic send/receive of SQLite databases from DB4S (SQLite Browser)|
|Management of uploaded files. eg delete, rename, etc|
|Online viewer/editor, with access controls|
|Teams + public/private databases|
|Versioning for databases + basic "diff" support|
|An "Issues" section (trouble ticketing) for your databases|
|Forks, Pull Requests, Merging as per GitHub model|
|Branches, as per the git concept|
|Support for email replys to comments, for Issues/PR's/etc|
|Drag & drop image support for Issues/PR's/etc|
|An API, so people can query/update their database from "Serverless" applications|
Completely undetermined at this stage. ;)
The concept GitHub uses for pricing - free for public stuff, $ for private - is appealing, but may not work for databases. At least initially everything will be free (thanks Rackspace!), which should give us a start towards understanding data usage patterns. With that we can develop a workable model, though it may take a few iterations.
