RubyJS now free and MIT licensed
The initial plan was to go with a MIT license. However at one point I was obsessed with RubyJS and wanted to work full time on it. Charging for commercial use would allow me to do that, I thought. But there’s only a few libraries that could make this system work. I hoped RubyJS could become one of these exceptions, but the conclusions of numerous discussions is that it most probably won’t.
Don’t swim against the current
It doesn’t make sense to swim against the current. So after a week full of discussions with rubyists and JS developers, I decided to switch back to an MIT open source license. Accept reality, fail fast, fail early.
No hard feelings
No hard feelings, I knew charging for a JS library was controversial and a ballsy move. I learned a lot, debated a lot and increased my comfort zone quite a bit. And so I’m back into consulting mode. Available for hire.
