Lombiq and open-source

The IT world is standing on the shoulder of open-source giants. To leverage the power of these giants, we have built our whole company on open-source. We firmly believe in open-source; it is one of our core values and has been embedded in our DNA, both on a personal and on a company level. Nothing speaks more about this than our activity within the open-source communities and if you're ever looking into working with us, then you can get a feeling of the code we write from all our public repositories — so don't just take our word for it, check them out for yourself!

Our in-kind contributions to open-source

As developers, we're contributing mainly code, documentation, and learning resources to the open-source ecosystem.  We are most active in the community of the .NET Core web content management system Orchard Core and its .NET Framework edition, Orchard CMS.

How do we contribute to Orchard?

Apart from Orchard, we have a lot of small ad-hoc contributions to various other projects. You can find these under the GitHub profiles of our team members.

Our financial contributions to open-source

Being an established company, we can also contribute financially to open-source projects, to the ones we find most valuable. These are the projects and developers we currently support continuously:

Occasionally we also sponsor ad-hoc fixes to other projects too, like the following ones:

We periodically check on the people and projects we sponsor to see if they're still active, as well as add new ones. We're on the lookout for more amazing projects, so certainly let us know if you know of one! We want to support smaller, less popular but still important projects that are otherwise under the radar of most people.

Note that while some of the open-source contributors we support also do contract work with us, the support is independent of that: We don't and will never ask for any favors in exchange, the support is for the contributor's existing activities.

Open-source and open hearts

Apart from the software world we also try to help in other communities with our philanthropic activities. Most recently, we've delivered thousands of reusable masks to the Hungarian Charity Service of the Order of Malta during the coronavirus pandemic.

Would you like to contribute to our projects?

That would be really fantastic! If you've found one of our projects valuable and you'd like to contribute in any way please check out our guidelines and go ahead, we'd be very happy to welcome your efforts! Also, consider contributing, in-kind or otherwise, to the projects supported by us.
