We Open Source

At Ship Shape, contributing to open source software is an addiction. We maintain several Ember addons of our own, and have contributed to countless other projects throughout the open source community.

JavaScript Libraries

We are passionate about JavaScript and all things UI related at Ship Shape. We are working hard to create open source libraries for many common web app use cases.

Shepherd was initially created by HubSpot, and was taken over by Ship Shape in 2018. We did a complete rewrite, added full test coverage, and modernized everything.

Sponsored Open Source Development

Ember could not be the incredible framework it is, without companies helping fund its progress. Whether you need an Ember addon to implement your favorite library in native Ember, a custom Ember data adapter for your API setup, or changes to Ember itself, sponsored open source development can help give back to the community, while also solving your business needs.
