I praise transparency. As such, I decided that Seeld shall be open source, because trust is paramount. And we need to trust the Web and its tools.
To be fair, I knew from the very beginning that Seeld would need to be open. Take a look at the project values: open-sourcing the code becomes quite obvious!
Seeld shall be Open Source on Bitbucket
I chose Bitbucket to host the code, because… why not! As far as I could gather, public Bitbucket repositories do not provide insights like GitHub. I do find it a bit of a shame. However, that won’t prevent anyone from accessing the code.
The project includes these repositories:
- seeld2-server : the back end server, licensed as a GNU General Public License 3 (GPL-3.0)
- seeld2-pwa : the hybrid front end client, ironically not a PWA as initially planned. GNU General Public License 3 (GPL-3.0)
- seeld2-devops : the scripts used to build everything are released as CC-0 – Public Domain Dedication
So where from now?
I will upgrade the front end to ensure future Android compatibility. However, I will also rewrite the front end code to upgrade it, both in terms of technology and user experience. Of course, the new code will remain open source.
Next months look busy for sure!
