Founder of Liberapay
Hi, I'm Charly. I create, improve, and maintain free software (and other commons). To fund this work I have chosen to rely on the direct support of the community.
Below is a summary of my work.
Free software and Open Data
I am the creator of Liberapay, the website you're on right now, and before that I had contributed a lot to its predecessor (Gittip/Gratipay).
I maintain several other free software projects, mostly written in Python, you can see them on my GitHub profile.
I'm also interested in OpenData. I've been working on legi.py since the database of French laws was released as open data in 2014. One of the things my code does is generate lists of anomalies in the data, to encourage the maintainers to correct them. Since December 2016 the lists are published on anomalies.legilibre.fr.
I've been thinking about creating a new programming language for years, because I'm unsatisfied with all the languages I've used or looked into.
I occasionally post on social media and contribute to Wikipedia to share some of the knowledge I've accumulated over the years on various topics.
