Hi, this is Steve from tldraw.
As of the recent 2.0 beta release, we have changed our license to permit non-commercial use only. See this article for more information: https://tldraw.substack.com/p/license-updates-for-the-tldraw-sdk .
This means that tldraw is likely not open source in the same way that other apps on Cloudron are open source, and is no longer licensed in a way that is compatible with its inclusion here.
I'll reach out via the support email but feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
no longer licensed in a way that is compatible
Complexity is that Cloudron permits self-packaging and deployment of apps.
So it's quite possible for e.g. me to package tldraw, which is a nice app of course, and deploy it on my Cloudron instance without any breach of a non-commercial-use licence.
The fact that it is available on Cloudron doesn't mean it's for commercial use.
This would be the same case for TLDraw. For example, I have a personal shared computer Commons Computer https://commonscomputer.com. I believe I could run tldraw on there for my own non-commercial purposes -- in the same way that I could run it on Digital Ocean or anywhere else.
@steveruizok Thanks for reaching out and letting us know about the license change!
Cloudron is not limited to deploying opensource apps - n8n, cal, outline, joplin, minecraft, confluence, emby and many others. If it's not clear, tldraw is not used by Cloudron software and is not part of Cloudron installation. We created an opensource tldraw package (it's a Dockerfile) , that lets one deploy tldraw on their servers. The docker images are also public on docker hub. It's no different from say using docker cli tool (except we have a ui) to deploy tldraw on Windows, Mac (commercial "OS") etc.
We had a similar situation with Joplin Server. We made a installation note and post installation note saying it cannot be used for commercial purposes. We also put a sticky note in the forum section informing users about this - https://forum.cloudron.io/topic/7211/non-commercial-and-personal-use-only . You can see how this looks by trying joplin on our demo server - https://my.demo.cloudron.io .
If the above is OK with you, I can do the same for tldraw.
But at the end of the day, if you are not comfortable, I can de-list it immediately.
@girish hmm. Yeah this is interesting. Can you expand on your process for this?
What about all the other non-commercial or differently licensed apps?
I mean, the golden rule here is “be nice” and agreeing with someone’s request is the easy path.
