Beautiful Soup for Enterprise

Beautiful Soup may not seem like a piece of enterprise software—in fact, early releases of the package treated the idea as a joke. But most large organizations that use Python are also using Beautiful Soup somewhere. This is a common story: mission-critical applications depending on open-source software packages that are maintained by a single developer in their spare time. It's not a sustainable model.

Tidelift is working with me and other open source maintainers to create that sustainable model. Maintainers get financial support for our work, and organizations get support and maintenance for their software dependencies. With Tidelift, your organization can save time, reduce risk, and improve code health, while paying the maintainers and improving the sustainability of the exact dependencies you use.

The Tidelift Subscription

The Tidelift Subscription is a managed subscription for application dependencies covering millions of open source projects. It's not just Python: Tidelift covers packages for JavaScript, Java, PHP, Ruby, .NET, and more.

A subscription includes:

Security updates
Tidelift's security response team uses a private channel to coordinate patches for new security vulnerabilities and alerts immediately, so your software supply chain is always secure.
Licensing verification and indemnification
Tidelift verifies how packages are licensed, enabling easy policy enforcement, and adds intellectual property indemnification to cover creators and users in case something goes wrong. You'll always have an up-to-date bill of materials for your dependencies which you share with your legal team, customers, or partners.
Maintenance and code improvement
Tidelift ensures the software you rely on keeps working as long as you need it to. Your managed dependencies are actively maintained, and Tidelift recruits additional maintainers where required.
Package selection and version guidance
Tidelift helps you choose the best open source packages from the start—and then guides you through updates to stay on releases that best fit your use.
Roadmap input
Supporting the work of open-source developers gives you a seat at the table. Tidelift's participating maintainers earn more income as their software is used by more subscribers, so they’re interested in knowing what you need.

The Tidelift Subscription lets you get commercial-grade support for the full breadth of open-source software you use. That means less time searching for license terms and FAQs, and more time building your own applications—and your business.
