Just like rockets need fuel, many of the greatest ideas need some cash. In Tim Caswell's case, $30,000 to be exact.
The fundraiser saw strong support from tech giants Adobe and Mozilla. Adobe pledged on behalf of its open-source code editor Brackets, which will need JS-Git to integrate into ChromeOS, FirefoxOS and other web-based platforms.
With a little over 24 hours to go, Mozilla came through with their $25,000 pledge, completing the fundraiser. That, along with Adobe’s pledge, and the contributions of 99 other backers, will allow Tim to bring this project to fruition.
