We aggregate and tag open source projects. We have collections of more than one million projects. Check out the projects section.



Code Sponsor helps by connecting sponsors with open source projects. Open source projects which are hosted in Github, will display advertisement in their Readme page. It works similar to Google adsense. Now code sponsor has announced to shut down their service. December 8 is set as deadline to remove the Ads from your Github pages.

code sponsor

It seems they violate Github terms and conditions. Github don't provide any Ads themselves and they don't entertain any third party to display Ads on their site. 

GitHub repositories are intended to host Content. You may include static images, links, and promotional text in the README documents associated with your repositories, but they must be related to the project you are hosting on GitHub.

You may not advertise in other Users' repositories, such as by posting monetized or excessive bulk content in issues.
