Feature Release: Bounties on any GitHub Issue

Chris Hiestand @chrishiestand

Boss.dev was designed to have a great developer UX; developers can earn bounties simply by using GitHub the way they already do with minimal visits to www.boss.dev. To support the great UX, the initial version of boss required the installation of the GitHub app on the repository, in order to use boss in the repo issues. However it was clear that a dependency on repository owners installing the github app was going to be an impediment to growth.

Now I've released a feature to be able to add a bounty to any github issue, without requiring the GitHub app to be installed on that repo. The boss-web-app bounty create/claim UX isn't quite as slick because you have to visit https://www.boss.dev to create and claim bounties, but I've tried to remove most of the friction from that process.

One sub-goal I accomplished is that the github-app bounties and the boss-web-app bounties play together nicely, you can use either or both in the same issue.

If there is a GitHub issue you'd like to see solved more quickly, be it bug, feature request, documentation, or something else, please consider creating a bounty for it on https://www.boss.dev
