Freeocart

Free Opencart ecosystem initiative

Hello! 🖖

This website is home of Freeocart project — initiative to create free ecosystem for Opencart CMS. Free — is not means like free beer, but free as free speech.

All modules from Freeocart are GPL licensed and opensource.


Why? 🧐

There is known fact that Opencart licensed under free GPLv3 license, but many extensions uses their own license (proprietary in most cases) – many authors limiting access to source code (especially in Russia).

On the one hand, authors try to protect they code with encrypting software (ionCube, etc) and force users to accept their license (for example, license keys check).

On the other hand, as a user, you cannot modify encrypted source code by yourself. Authors not always can modify their products for your needs, so you got in vendor lock.

Also, encrypted software cannot give you any security guarantees, because you don’t know what exactly code in these parts.

From the point of view of Freeocart author — it’s a wrong way.
