Dear developers,

 

First of all thanks for your support. I appreciate it a lot. Until now uniGUI was distributed as a completely free product. Of course, Ext JS is not free so you need to get a license for it.  Since uniGUI is a product based on Ext JS library it is obvious that it can't stay as a free product forever.

 

Let's consider our licensing options:

 

1) Free / hobbyist / non-profit version

 

This could be an option for hobbyist non-profit usage but since Ext JS doesn't provide such an option it is not possible for uniGUI to have such an option. Even if we deploy a restricted version of uniGUI for free usage you'll need to purchase an Ext JS license for your projects. Which means your investment will be at least 329USD per developer.

 

Conclusion: There will be no free version of uniGUI.

 

2) Low cost restricted version

 

Again there is no low cost version of Ext JS so deploying a low cost version of uniGUI doesn't make sense. You'll pay for a restricted low cost version of uniGUI while you need to pay for a full version of Ext JS.

 

Conclusion: There will be no low cost version of uniGUI.

 

3) Standard version (Without source)

 

This will be the standard version for uniGUI. You'll get the Ext JS license separately (Combined in future). You will receive a DCU only package. More or less like something we currently distribute as beta.

 

4) Pro version (With source)

 

Same as Pro but will include source code (Full or partial). It may also include some additional tools.

 

5) Source code sold as a separate product

 

This can be another option.

 

6) Premium Support Pack.

 

An option for those who need to receive direct support.

 

With version 0.94 or 0.95 the above picture will become more neat.

 

Soon we will stop distributing the free betas. This will happen with version 0.94 or 0.95. Then you will be able to purchase uniGUI beta licenses when product is still beta but close to release. Beta licenses will be sold with some discount and will be cheaper than the release. Again Ext JS license will be at same price.

 

I'm sharing this info to let you know that if you plan to choose uniGUI as a long term partner you will need to purchase a license in near future. I'm sure that will not be an issue for many of you because you already develop commercial web apps. From very beginning it was obvious that uniGUI will not be always free because even if I'd distributed it as completely free Ext JS license would prohibit a free usage of the framework.

 

In future releases, an OEM license of Ext JS will be included so you will not be forced to purchase it from Sencha.

 

I'm ready to hear from you about other licensing options.

 

Thanks

Farshad Mohajeri

If Pro (with source) will not be 2x (or more) expensive then Std, I prefer Pro ultimately.

Sounds good.

Any discounts will be? Something like

Thanks for your comment.

 

I have some plans to start selling support packs soon.

 

With support packs you'll be able purchase credits to receive direct support from us.

 

The amount you pay for support will not vanish when all of your credits are spent. We will count it as pre-payment for the commercial version. So if you spent 500USD to purchase support credits you'll receive at least 500USD of discount when you purchase commercial version.

My ideas w/slight modifications

 

 

- Standard version (Without source)

This will be the standard version for uniGUI. You'll get the Ext JS license separately (Combined in future). You will receive a DCU only package. More or less like something we currently distribute as beta.

 

- Pro version (without source)

 include some additional tools and several incident support pack (ie. 2 premium incidents)

 

- Source code sold as a separate product

This can be another option.

 

- Premium Support Pack.

You will still need to provide an eval version for Delphi developers that runs when Delphi is loaded. This will allow developers to work with it to see if it meets their needs without first purchasing the software.

1、那你的UNIGUI准备多少钱一个授权?

2、既然是募捐或者是说预收款。你总得要告诉我们多少钱吧。
