License and Source code for firefox add-on


#1

Where is the latest source code for firefox add-on? The following site seems to be the old repo: https://github.com/languagetool-org/languagetool-browser-addon

Why is the firefox add-on license change from GNU Lesser General Public License, version 2.1 to All Rights Reserved? Does the chrome add-on has the same license “All Rights Reserved”? Is it possible to publish the next version under “GNU Lesser General Public License, version 2.1” license?

Thank you.

The new version (both Firefox and Chrome) isn’t available as Open Source because we have to pay people to work on it, so we cannot just give it away, sorry.

Got it, thank you for working on it. : )

I did not know the Firefox addon was closed-source… oh well. Better than nothing :slight_smile:

Certainly much better than using Grammerly and others, with Language Tool you can use your own server :smile:
