Spree Hits a Major Milestone: 500 Contributors

Yesterday the Spree open source project hit a major milestone by surpassing 500 contributors. With over 11,200 contributions, 259,196 downloads and 30 language translations, Spree has become one of the top open source projects worldwide.

When I started the project back in 2007, I hoped that it would be widely accepted but I knew it would have to be special in order to become adopted by the Ruby community which is well known for its exacting standards. To achieve this milestone is incredible, and I take it as a validation of the exemplary work done by the entire Spree community.

Our Contributors Make Us What We Are

The diversity of contributions from developers all around the world makes Spree an especially powerful platform for your storefront. Most platforms rely on a corporate roadmap or have a handful of contributors. Because so many developers have contributed to Spree, it represents the experience of tens of thousands of stores around the world.

Thank you for helping us make Spree what it is today, and thanks in advance for helping it continue to evolve in the future.
