Hi Reddit.

@orospakr

So, it certainly appears (from the reports I've read; I've not gone and compared it myself yet) that ShopQi ripped off lots of publicly visible frontend code from Shopify. However, @tobi's merge also backs out all of the backend code. Presumably ShopQi had to write that bit themselves.

Also, it's kind of surprising that ShopQi pushed its entire source tree here on Github to begin with.

@TazeTSchnitzel

The code quality of this commit is amazing, it has gone up maybe 100%.

@Laurelai

Best. Commit. Ever.

@simond

at least its open source. is shoppify?

@raggi

Wondering if @tobi is aware his assets and code were also relicensed under AGPL 3!

@olalonde

Ripoff? The guy at least had to write the backend, no? Seems to me that @tobi doesn't like competition. How about you do the same thing on the Diaspora repo and claim they are a Facebook ripoff?

@silent1mezzo

@lenage This is just a statement from @tobi that it's not ok to blatantly copy another person/companies work.

Competition is one thing, a total ripoff is another.

+1 I saw this on trending repos =)

Props to anyone that could build a product end to end. Nothing is original on the internets. Shopify should offer this guy a job to spearhead the Chinese market instead of belittling him.

@geeknam

I approve this pull request :+1:

@jcstringer

So awesome.

@hisea
  1. Ripping off design is wrong.
  2. Removing the entire open source project including its original parts that are not ripoffs is also wrong.
  3. Correct a wrong with another wrong doesn't make anything right.
@rgurley

Ripping off design is wrong.

O RLY?
