Noodl is going open source!

We are thrilled to announce that Noodl, the next gen low-code platform, is transitioning to an open core model. This significant shift will make Noodl the most extensive and powerful open source low-code tool available to developers, businesses, and organizations.

What does it mean exactly?

Open Source Freedom

At the heart of this transition is the open core model, which means that everything you need to build, deploy, and host applications will be open source.

Expanded Functionality

Our commercial version offers additional features such as collaboration tools, version control, and optimizations for scaling applications. This ensures that both individuals and organizations can access functionalities for building advanced applications.

Seamless Hosting Services

We continue to provide hosting services, and in the coming months, we'll introduce enterprise features to enhance the hosting experience for businesses and organizations.

Transition to open source

Structure Overview

The code will be divided into two main parts. The first part focuses on building and running the Noodl editor, while the second part addresses deployment and hosting of Noodl applications.

Licensing Approach

To cater to both community and commercial users, we'll use two different licences. The editor component will be licensed under GPL3, encouraging collaboration and ongoing platform improvements. The deployment and hosting component will be licensed under Apache 2.0, enabling organizations to build, deploy, and host commercial Noodl applications while benefiting from community contributions.


Over the next 6-12 months, we'll be transitioning to an open core model, with regular code releases for community access.
