Jest is maintained by a community of open source contributors and Facebook employees.
Our open source contributors work on behalf of the community to create new features, fix bugs, and maintain the issue backlog. Facebook employees do the same, focused on the problems specific to Facebook's scale, and run all proposed releases on Facebook's enormous test suite before publishing.
All of us do our part to make testing delightful.
At the Jest Summit we announced the Jest Open Collective. This is our way to help support the efforts of the open source Jest community. To be absolutely clear: Facebook employees cannot benefit from the Jest Open Collective. The collective's sole purpose is to support the open source side of the Jest community.
In this post we'll outline what the Jest Open Collective is, the structure, and the goals we have.
