An open source community

We decided to keep the core of the project open source in order to:

Make our software available to any person or company whose problems it will solve.

Make our software available to any person or company whose problems it will solve.

Build a sustainable open source business for the long term.

We believe that the more eyes there are, the security and quality of the code will increase accordingly.

A permissive open source license encourages a thriving community, which in turn provides a healthy peer review mechanism that closed source or restrictive licenses simply cannot compete with.

An active community means more resources, help and support is available to all. It also means more contributions to the product and to our board integrations.
