You can consider donating if you want to support @termux development, encourage us to bring more features/packages and help pay hosting costs for our sites and additional packages repositories and mirrors, pay testing devices costs, etc.
We are currently using github actions for building our packages and that does not incur any cost to us. However, the primary packages repository is hosted by Hetzner, and we pay the monthly hosting cost with the donations we receive at Open Collective and Github Sponsors.
Donating to us will show your appreciation and help support the work (as in development or maintenance) of the various members and contributors. Even a small amount (for a cup of coffee) is greatly appreciated. Look at the git history and repository statistics (
termux-app) to see all the people that have put time and effort into the packages and apps. Many of these people are outside contributors and not part of the @termux team, but should be supported as well. You can also check out
CODEOWNERS for the
termux-packages if you want to support the maintenance of specific packages.

@fornwall is the creator of the @termux project and was for several years the sole termux developer and created the apps and ported many packages, but is currently inactive. You can donate through https://paypal.me/fornwall, https://www.patreon.com/termux, or by buying the (now deprecated and basically non-working) termux addon apps on Google play (Termux:API, Termux:Float, Termux:Widget, Termux:Styling, Termux:Tasker, Termux:Boot). Note that any donations sent to termux's patreon account controlled by fornwall are not shared with rest of the members to support current termux development/costs, so consider moving to Open Collective instead. However, if you want to support fornwall's past work, then you can of course send donations to him.
