WireCloud builds on cutting-edge end-user (software) development, RIA and semantic technologies to offer a next-generation end-user centred web application mashup platform aimed at allowing end users without programming skills to easily create web applications and dashboards/cockpits (e.g. to visualize their data of interest or to control their domotized home or environment). Web application mashups integrate heterogeneous data, application logic, and UI components (widgets) sourced from the Web to create new coherent and value-adding composite applications. They are targeted at leveraging the "long tail" of the Web of Services (a.k.a. the Programmable Web) by exploiting rapid development, DIY, and shareability. They typically serve a specific situational (i.e. immediate, short-lived, customized) need, frequently with high potential for reuse. Is this "situational" character which precludes them to be offered as 'off-the-shelf' functionality by solution providers, and therefore creates the need for a tool like WireCloud.
$ sudo pip install wirecloud
See the installation guide for more info.
WireCloud is a user-development tool aimed both at users and developers. Users use the platform to build and/or use their interfaces using deployed widgets and developers, whereas developers do create such components by extending existing ones or creating them from scratch.
Bugs and feature requests
This project is part of FIWARE and has been rated as follows:
Testing of WireCloud is based on two different frameworks. On the one side, Python code is being
on Karma and Jasmine. Both tests are run on a local copy of the
WireCloud repository on GitHub, inside
Before running the tests, you have to ensure all the python dependencies are
installed on the environment. To do so, execute the following commands on the
$ pip install -r requirements.txt $ pip install -r requirements-dev.txt
Once installed all the dependencies, you can run the Python tests by using the following command:
$ python manage.py test --nologcapture -v 2 -a tags='wirecloud-noselenium'
WireCloud also comes with some selenium tests that can be executed using the following command:
$ python manage.py test --nologcapture -v 2 -a tags='wirecloud-selenium'
$ sudo npm install -g grunt-cli $ npm install
Once installed all the npm dependencies, tests can be executed using

Are there any legal issues with AGPL 3.0? Is it safe for me to use?
There is absolutely no problem in using a product licensed under AGPL 3.0. Issues with GPL (or AGPL) licenses are mostly related with the fact that different people assign different interpretations on the meaning of the term “derivate work” used in these licenses. Due to this, some people believe that there is a risk in just using software under GPL or AGPL licenses (even without modifying it).
For the avoidance of doubt, the owners of this software licensed under an AGPL-3.0 license
wish to make a clarifying public statement as follows:
Please note that software derived as a result of modifying the source code of this software in order to fix a bug or incorporate enhancements is considered a derivative work of the product. Software that merely uses or aggregates (i.e. links to) an otherwise unmodified version of existing software is not considered a derivative work, and therefore it does not need to be released as under the same license, or even released as open source.
