> Monetization via Paid Premium Version / Open Core
This point is interesting, because it assumes the only way to do premium is with a closed-source version, losing the open-source benefits.
Personally I've had good success (i.e. comfortably enough income as a solo bootstrapped project that I can work on open source full time) doing a freemium approach that's 100% open-source for http://httptoolkit.tech
Yes, anybody can fork the project and remove the payment checks (here: https://github.com/httptoolkit/httptoolkit-ui/blob/5cf0b10c6...) but it's a non-trivial hassle to fork everything and hook it all up, and means ongoing maintenance work to manage a fork forever, so at the price it's not really worth any serious professional's time (and I give out free licenses for everybody would contributes to the code anyway).
Works well, lets you stay 100% open source, which is good for everybody and encourages contributions, and you can still make enough money to fund development (never going to make anybody a billionaire, but that's not the point).
