nopCommerce uses Kendo UI-Framework. I was wondering, how this can be legal, to distribute a free and open source product like nopCommerce with a proprietary UI framework, which costs several hundred Dollar?
Since all the KendoUI-files are minified I guess, this is somehow legal.
The question I have is: May I use KendoUI to create plugins or modifications? For example may I use the 'k-button' css-class, so my plugins look like the rest of the shop?
May I use it, when I want to sell my plugins or create a shop that will be used commercialy? Or do I have to buy an KendoUI-licence?
I have only one question. Telerik mentions that the Grid Widget is included only in the pro version of Kendo. Not in Open Source. How is it included in nopcommerce?
Thank you in advance
Thank you very much for your response. Telerik's license system is a little a bit confusing and I always have a problem in order to understand what is free and what not
nopCommerce should buy Kendo, only the latest versions of the libraries provide safety and comfort.
In my opinion in plugins we can use license from nopCommerce.
Because plugins works only with nopCommerce - you can't use it in other application.
By the way we had to bought Kendo UI license.
