In some jurisdictions, the APIs implemented by Crossbar.io may be protected by copyright.

In regards to WAMP and the WAMP meta-API, these are covered by the respective licenses provided by the WAMP project.

In regard to other program APIs, we provide a license.

WAMP clients as separate works

We see any code which connects to Crossbar.io via WAMP as a separate work. The Crossbar.io license (the AGPL v3) does not apply to WAMP clients. This applies irrespective of where these run, i.e. also to components which are run side-by-side within an native worker of type router, which are run in a native worker of type container or in a guest worker. We promise to stand by this view of the license. If you need further assurance, you can email us at contact@crossbario.com for a signed letter asserting the above promise.

We release all our client libraries (those provided by the Autobahn project under non-copyleft licenses, which allow their use for closed-source & commercial software. For other client libraries see their respective licenses (these appear to be universally non-copyleft as well).

Templates

Crossbar.io is able to generate applications from application templates. The code for application templates within this folder (and folders beneath) is licensed under the BSD 2-clause open-source license or the Apache 2.0 license.

The same licenses applie to the code generated from the application templates. E.g., when you do

crossbar init --template hello:python --appdir $HOME/hello

Crossbar.io will generate a new WAMP application in the $HOME/hello directory from the application template in hello/python. All files generated in $HOME/hello are licensed under above licenses.

The licenses allow you to use the template code and generated code in your own applications, including closed-source and commercial applications.
