Foxtrick is a joint effort by a few developers, and translators for nearly every language in Hattrick.

Flattr this

There were always people saying Foxtrick is more important to them than HT Supporter package. Now you can show your appreciation with deeds as well as words.

Help make developing Foxtrick easier by even a tiny bit. You can pledge as little as €2!

€2 is about the price of a beer, yet, a developer could work full time if 5% of Foxtrick users pledged €2 every month. Hattrick Supporter subscription costs a few times as much.

Why your contribution matters?

Foxtrick – a bundle of features you know and love – is like a house of cards between your browser and Hattrick. It relies on both of them behaving in a nice, constant and expected manner. Unfortunately, the only constant thing in life is change. Changes by Hattrick and browser vendors (especially Mozilla) are never ceasing and every change has the potential to knock that house of cards over.

Stability is all and good but we would also like to have new features every once in a while. This means that Foxtrick's TODO list is always long. Foxtrick requires constant developer time.

Unfortunately, volunteered developer time for Foxtrick has been declining over the years. Time is a limited resource in all of our lives. Your help is sorely needed now.

How will developer time be spent?

  • Fixing bugs and maintaining the code base
  • Developing support for the new multi-process architecture in Firefox
  • Developing new features
  • Better support for Safari and Opera2

How will your money be spent?

  • Server and DNS costs
  • Getting better art assets (icons, logos)2
  • Software fees2
  • Payment fees3
  • Buying beer for Foxtrick collaborators

What do you get for your money?

  • A happy fuzzy feeling
  • Foxtrick forum badge
  • Prioritized support
  • Voting on new features4
  • Credited as a contributor in the Foxtrick about section (if pledged €10+)
