About this repo
This is the repository of Chevereto Free edition which is forked from the Chevereto 3.x series. Chevereto Free has the same look and feel of our paid version, but it packs only the most essential features and it doesn't include any kind of support. It is Open Source software licensed under the AGPLv3 license.
Free vs Paid Chevereto
The paid edition includes all features (storages, banners, likes, followers, social login, etc.) and it gets more frequent updates. The free edition is always 6 months behind the paid edition and lots of sacrifices had to be made to be able to offer this product for free. The following table summarizes the differences between free/paid editions.
|Updates||Each 6 months||Monthly|
|Features delay||+6 months||Zero|
|One-click system update||Yes||Yes|
|External storage support||No||Yes|
|Likes + Followers||No||Yes|
|Facebook, Twitter, Google and VK signup||No||Yes|
Keep in mind that when you choose the paid edition, you contribute to keeping development ongoing. At Chevereto we don't sell any kind of extra paid plugins or offer additional support tiers. We believe in one-time payments and upgrade fees only for major versions. We don't even charge any yearly-based fees.
If you enjoy this software, then please consider purchasing our paid edition.
