I’m using it to host project documentation and the like here: https://www.wikifeat.org
As I get close to being able to release something ‘usable’, the thought has occurred to me that there might be some monetization possibilities here, specifically:
- Offering hosted instances (SaaS)
- Selling support / consulting
- Custom plugin development
- Non-free plugins and extensions
- Anything else?
Basically the traditional open source business model. I know there are several other options available here, both commercial and open source. Most of the other open source wikis are rather aged (though some continue to see heavy use and are actively maintained), while the commercial options tend to be incredibly bloated.
I’m wondering what you folks think of a bootstrapped open source business? And also if you think I’d be attempting to enter a way too mature and crowded market?
Oh, and if you think my project is garbage, feel free to say so
