GitHub Apps and OAuth Apps now feature GA support for the OAuth 2.0 Device Authorization Grant, in addition to the existing Web Application Flow. This allows any CLI client or developer tool to authenticate using a secondary system with a browser. GitHub CLI uses this authentication method on the login command.
Companies can now invest in open source with GitHub Sponsors!
- We’re launching GitHub Sponsors for companies in beta on December 8 (Tuesday) at Universe.
- Self-service (payment via credit card or PayPal) orgs can sign up right away. During the beta, companies with invoiced accounts are not yet supported but can join a waitlist for updates.
- Companies will be charged a 10% fee after the beta. We’re waiving the fee during the beta to thank early adopters for getting the program jump-started. After the beta, we will charge sponsors a 10% fee on top of the sponsorship amount to cover our operational costs.
- We’ve added more discoverability with an improved Explore page.
