The world runs on open source, and projects need more than a version or source control system to scale
The Linux Foundation has evolved a proven methodology to transform projects into category leaders. LFX operationalizes this approach, providing a suite of tools built to facilitate every aspect of open source development.
Critical projects must have their finger on the pulse of their entire developer ecosystem, with tools tailored to key stakeholders driving project development, including maintainers, contributors, community managers, marketers, and more.
Projects are more than repositories
Most open source tooling is built to track repositories and operations at the organizational level, but projects are often much more complex, with hundreds or thousands of repositories and contributors involved in development.
LFX provides much-needed context at the project level by aggregating, analyzing and contextualizing data across all your repositories and contributors.
Choice is in the DNA of open source
Open source projects vary greatly in their needs and ways of operating, requiring different tools and methodologies for different jobs.
LFX empowers projects to standardize, automate, analyze and self-manage while preserving their choice of tools and development workflows in a vendor-neutral platform.
Trust is crucial to projects
The success of open source depends on enterprise adoption. Which makes creating secure code, and transparency across a project absolutely critical.
Ensure project security, health, sustainability and build trust with your end users by leveraging tools developed by a neutral and trusted organization supporting the open source community.
Successful projects are built for global scale
To grow from a repository to a recognized ISO certification, projects require a robust and flexible infrastructure to bring together hundreds of thousands of developers from thousands of organizations and hundreds of countries.
LFX provides the solid foundation needed to support this type of code velocity, on a reliable platform that enables projects to scale quickly.
We have some work to do
Like all modern software, LFX is built using open source code and is integrated with a wide array of different systems–from GitHub, to Slack, to Google Workspace. We plan to release much of this code as open source in the near future, allowing our communities to meet their own needs through collaborative development. However, we still have much work to do before our code is ready for others to dive into. As with many leading OSS projects, this process takes time and we want to get things right so that our communities can benefit. In the meantime, we would love your feedback on what you would like to see in the future from LFX and the Linux Foundation.
