    Collection of John Carmack’s .plan files

    You can read some of Carmack's plan files (blogs before blog was coined) for some insight into this, but basically he does it because he learned to code by reading other people's code, and so wants to help the next generation of programmers get started too

  • shapez.io

    shapez.io is an open source base building game inspired by factorio! Available on web & steam

    It does work for a game, i. e.: shapez.io is under GPL3 but also is being sold on Steam

    Piling on: Mindustry is another GPL3 game that is available on Steam as well as several other platforms.

  • aseprite

    Animated sprite editor & pixel art tool (Windows, macOS, Linux)

    Selling GPL software can also work if you have enough momentum and target non-technical users. aseprite is a source-available sprite editor where it's possible and allowed for someone to compile the product themselves. Their license mentions:

  • LibreSprite

    Animated sprite editor & pixel art tool -- Fork of the last GPLv2 commit of Aseprite

    It used to be GPLv2, they changed the license, and now there's an open source fork LibreSprite. You can read about the change here.

  • stack-overflow-import

    Import arbitrary code from Stack Overflow as Python modules.

    Then you may find this Python package amusing.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
