How do you think that the author of an excellent domestic open source project earns less than 5k a month?

Today, the circle of friends was brushed by this picture below, and it seems that the talents of an excellent domestic open source project author have not been well rewarded:


The project in the event is flv.js, which BiliBili opened source three years ago. It is a FLV (HTML5 Flash Video) player) written in pure JavaScript. Although it is a FLV player, it is not used at all. This is a major feature of Flash,. See the specific features [read the original].

The working principle of flv.js is to convert the FLV file stream to ISO BMFF (Fragmented MP4) segment, and then provide the mp4 segment to HTML5 through Media Source Extensions API

The project is excellent, and it has a high degree of attention on the OSCHINA, and it is also possible to see its data on the GitHub, star up to 15 k, for k with 2300:


The author is said to have completed the project alone and pushed it open source in the company, but the author's salary is not ideal, cause and effect can be understood elsewhere.

Here I would like to briefly talk about other aspects of the topic.

First of all, such ancient information suddenly blew up the circle of friends. It can be seen that the regret of technical people for the situation of talents in their peers has always existed, which in fact shows that there should be a large number of similar ones at present.

Those who have several times their wages. I'm bald. Are you still drawing shampoo with me here?

On the other hand, we all know that the situation of domestic open source is not as beautiful as it seems. At present, some open source projects in the underlying infrastructure of technology, such as Linux,Kubernetes,Redis and Spark, are led by foreign countries, and the global organizations that formulate norms such as open source domain agreements are also foreign, and even the most popular source code hosting platform is also foreign.

Although more and more companies and individuals have been involved in open source projects in recent years, we have serious shortcomings in terms of project quantity, quality, open source governance, open source culture and methodology.

We know that there are problems, and we are calling for the rapid development of our open source business and even the IT industry capabilities, but we are still taking an old road that may not have a bright future.

Behind this, you can dig deep into it.

Although foreign open source must have such and such purposes, but to face the reality, our domestic situation is not pure and ignores some basic things. For example, in the previous case, since a company really wants to develop open source well, how can we not even entertain such excellent authors well? ? Up to the whole industry,If the talent can't come at once, then what kind of domestic (open source) development is very open / free, then how to develop?

Finally, this article is not intended to offend bilibili.
