The Tonido platform is going open source
It is going to be a month since we released the public Tonido beta. Since then we have got great response and feedback from everyone who has tried Tonido. We even recently crossed a milestone with the number of Tonido Profiles created as well as number of people online.
At CodeLathe, we believe in the power of the open platform as well as in the open source movement.
We think that there is great potential in the Tonido platform and really like the power and flexibility that Tonido offers to end users. We also believe that there are many more applications waiting out there that are yet to be developed by creative developers for Tonido. We want those applications to come alive on the Tonido platform.
As a first step towards that goal, we are happy to announce that the Tonido platform will be available under a open source license (Most likely the GPL v3). This means you can download the Tonido Platform SDK and develop applications based on it completely free of charge.
Not only do we want to get more users to try the Tonido platform, we also want developers worldwide to develop on the Tonido platform.
If an open source license doesn’t fit your needs, the Tonido Platform SDK will also be available through other licenses.
It is going to take a short while to get the SDK ready for download and all the licensing legal stuff worked out.
If you would like to sign up on our developer mailing list, please do so. We will send out information once the SDK is ready.
