What is GraniteDS? – A Services Overview.
Open-Source vs. Commercial Licenses
GraniteDS is fully open-source and its modules are released under the following licenses:
- GNU Lesser General Public License, version 2.1 (LGPL 2.1): foundation libraries and tools, required in any GraniteDS projects. LGPL 2.1 is a widely used and permissive license, compatible with most commercial applications.
- GNU General Public License, version 3.0 (GPL 3.0): top-level libraries and tools, required if your application needs to leverage the most advanced features of our platform. Using GPL 3.0. libraries requires that you provide the entire source code of your application. This is usually incompatible with commercial applications.
If you are not building an open-source application, you will need a specific GraniteDS license so you can bypass the requirements of the GPL 3.0 and keep your code closed.
See our licenses section for more details.
