Dear Open Source: let’s do a better job of asking for money

John Robb

In 2019 we started building a library for building node based UIs, and decided to call it “React Flow.” It’s a nice name, so of course “reactflow” and “react-flow” were already taken. The best option we had for us was “react-flow-renderer,” so we took what we could get.
