Monetizing a plugin

Monetizing a plugin

Postby yumology on Tue Apr 16, 2013 12:47 am

Are there any premium plugins out there that must be purchased to be used?

I am in the middle of a creating a plugin that I feel could easily be sold and I'm curious what are the implications of that and if it's even legal to do (perhaps it's against the Sublime Text ToS?)

I'm sure others can elaborate, but I purchased the SFTP plugin:

I would be weary of going down that path. There's 3 platforms to support which could be a real ...

I talked to Will one time about it, and he said he's made money on his plugins. I'd imagine it to be not as much as he'd get if his efforts were spent elsewhere.

Spending more than a single license's $ worth of time on a given support request is OK at scale, but if you only got some nibbles, could be a pita meeting commitments.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt
