Funding request for the Media UI Rewrite 1.x and beyond

Since January 2020 I’ve been working on a new version of the Media management module for Neos CMS.

Currently funding badges can be bought via the Neos funding platform (see Media Rewrite One Time badges) or if a direct funding for my work is preferred you can also contact me.
If the crowdfunding is not sufficient it would be helpful to get a partial funding via the Neos piggy bank. Of course that depends on other projects this crazy year and what we have left.

Besides funding for my own time, additional help with development of the GraphQL API, Apollo, React, etc. stuff is very welcome and would be a great help.
If someone invests more time and we have enough funding they of course should benefit from it too.


Released at NeosCon 2020.

  • Filter asset list
  • List and thumbnail view

Additional information

Feel free to ask anything :slight_smile:



I want to add that a lot more time went into the concept and implementation that would be covered by the initial 12.000€ request. But that amount would at least cover enough to make it possible to release something.

If more funding comes it would be great of course and cover more of the spent time. Also more polishing could be done. After an initial release of course maintenance is also necessary and will take quite some time.

Hey @sebobo, I am happy to anounce sponsoring:


Addition sponsoring from internezzo to get a step closer to v1.0.0:

  • 3000 EUR

So awesome! Thank you and to your company very much!
That will help a lot to move forward again.

The filtering was planned for a later release but I‘m sure we can build a first version in there that might have to be enabled via some setting if it‘s not stable enough for every usecase yet.

Awesome news right before the weekend :slight_smile:

Received the confirmation for another 100h by a sponsor who wants to stay anonymous for now.
But they will also have a list of features they want. So I will update the overview when I had my meetings with them and know more.
But I’m happy there is finally some progress and I can invoice some of the hours I put into the project in the past which didn’t have funding at the time :partying_face:
