What is managed open source?

Tidelift uses a layered approach to keep your open source dependencies trouble-free and enterprise-ready.

Tools. We provide tools to keep track of all the dependencies you use, flag issues, and enforce policies.

Management. We manage core, mission-critical packages on your behalf, including researching and resolving issues so you don't have to anymore.

Maintainers. We recruit maintainers for many important projects and pay them to proactively prevent problems and address the root causes of issues.

What’s different about Tidelift?

The Tidelift Subscription is different from traditional commercial open source products connectionbecause it's created in direct cooperation with the maintainers behind a broad range of community-led open source projects.

This creates the ideal alignment between the users of open source packages and the best experts you could hope to enlist—the actual open source contributors who maintain that software, and often created it in the first place.

Because maintainers are paid a reliable income for their ongoing work, they can dedicate their efforts towards keeping their software enterprise ready.

And maintainer income scales as more subscribers use their packages. More income means more investment making their software even better, faster.

That alignment of interests between users and creators just makes sense. It’s a win-win.
