History

Hero was developed by Brock Ferguson as founder of Electric Function, Inc. Initially, the main Hero app was released open source but Hero eCommerce required a paid license. Since Electric Function was acquired in 2012, Hero and its eCommerce upgrade have been released as free, open source software.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
