Hey all! Long time no see!
Happened to check back in after a long hiatus (still using Nyxt, just disconnected from a lot for a bit) and saw this and noticed it didn’t seem anyone was thinking what I was.
Have you at all considered that Nyxt itself is the application? I get the appeal of making a one and done (minus updates of course) kind of application for Nyxt but why not think of Nyxt as the Business Application itself? I understand that with the current idea you can just make something at let companies/people buy it over and over again buuuuuuut just work directly with the businesses.
Nyxt is incredibly powerful as we all know but with that come some intricacies that not everyone has an easy solution for. But plenty of companies have very very talented and smart people that can wrap their minds around it even if they don’t build it all out from scratch as it were. I’m thinking of people like me. I love it, but as you noticed months back I was asking A LOT of questions and getting a lot of help and feedback. Don’t you think companies would find it valuable that you build them out what is essentially their own browser (because seriously it would be that) that they could then fine tune and tweak over time? I can do that all day, had you all wanted some of the same things that I wanted you could have done in minutes what took me hours to do. And I would have happily paid you to take my ideas and turn it into something that I can tweak myself down the road if needed.
This can be turned into something else as well where (I have seen it happen before first hand) you get with the right company(ies) and they end up donating a significant amount to you with no strings because they see what you did for them and see the future in the project and don’t want it to fizzle out. Anyway I’m getting ahead of myself and Nyxt here but I really do think you could manage to turn this into something a lot bigger for all of us if you go forward with the idea that Nyxt is already your big idea and it can be a lot bigger with the right customization on your part.
Create Nyxt Pro/Enterprise, keep everything open-source like you are and find the right partners. Build a company a solution that fits the workflows they want people in their company to have. I believe the biggest learning curve to Nyxt ir what happens right out of the gate with all the customizations and what it takes to do so. Work with IT in a company and customize the crap out of it so that by the time it gets to their users they can use it no problem and it makes their jobs easier. IT already have solutions in place that could easily distribute all configs you create to all users and allow them to change and manage it all easily.
Oops not so much a TL;DR section haha… I tried
