Website for fman's build system

So far, 2,700 hours have gone into developing fman. A few hundred of these hours were spent on seemingly standard tasks such as creating installers for the various operating systems, or automatic updates. It's incredible that there is no single standard solution for this.

To address this problem, I began in 2018 to open source fman's build system. It puts those hundreds of hours at your fingertips within minutes. Until now, fbs was only hosted on GitHub. It has already amassed a respectable 1,500 stars:

To bring the project forward however, it needs its own website. I found some time in the last few days to create it. You can now find it at https://build-system.fman.io. Enjoy!

Open sourcing the build system benefits fman in several ways: First, I sell commercial licenses for fbs. The income from this helps support fman's development. Second, the more people use fbs, the more stable it – and thus fman – will become. As I said in a previous post: Win-win!

Michael started fman in 2016, convinced that we deserve a better file manager. fman's launch in 2017 was a huge success. But despite full-time work, it only makes $350 per month. The goal for 2018 is to fix this.
