I would like to develop an open source project, do I need to get a license?
No, for open source applications compatible with GNU AGPL v3 you may use WebSharper without a commercial license.
My open source project is not GNU AGPL v3, can I still use WebSharper without a commercial license?
Absolutely! There are a number of other FLOSS licenses that you can use with WebSharper, as listed in the open source licensing exception.
I have a commercial developer license, how long is it valid?
Your commercial license is a perpetual license that allows you to develop any number of royalty-free applications with WebSharper.
As a licensed developer, does my customer need a license to host/deploy the application I am developing?
No, the WebSharper commercial license allows that you distribute your WebSharper applications to your customers without requiring further licenses on their end to host and deploy these applications. However, these applications can only be modified by entities in posession of developer licenses.
What is the difference between a developer and a support license?
Developer licenses enable you to develop commercial applications without having to provide its full source code to the general public. A support license provides you with a number of further benefits. For instance, with a support license you get telephone and email support for technical queries, access to the daily source code of WebSharper and its extensions, giving you the most up to date versions of the product stack.
I have a support license, how long is it valid?
Support licenses are valid for 12 months, unless otherwise noted.
