    License questions

    Hi all

    I was wondering about AFL licensing of Shinken.

    Is it possible to develop a closed source UI (since it communicates using HTTP API) ? a closed source check process ? Or everything that is integrated somehow with Shinken must be published as AFL ?

    Thank you

    AFL? You means Affero GPL?

    For a close source UI, it should work if you are only communicating with the LiveStatus API for example (it's not an http api by the way). For checks, yes you can create your own one with your license, but it can be shipped with Shinken same package (so put another tool to get them), same for the UI of course.

    Of course all Shinken code modification should be accessible to your users (no your UI, but all Shinken code modified), thanks to the Affero GPL. One gray part is the module one. I think you can link module not in Affero GPL in Shinken if you got another tool not in Affero where the module is working (that's the tricky point).

    And good luck of course : there are already plenty of good UIs for Shinken, and you will get few help for a closed one

    Hi Nap

    Yes AFL stands for Affero GPL (sorry for the mispelling).

    Thanks for your answer.
