Do you need to buy a run time license from Sencha if your application code written is developed in Ext JS and deployed on a web server?


  • Just save yourself the hassle and choose a different framework. – pllee Aug 11 '12 at 1:36
  • @pllee, care to tell us why it is a hassle? – NoChance Aug 11 '12 at 2:23
  • @EmmadKareem I would but I don't think this is the best place. You can see my contact info in my profile. – pllee Aug 11 '12 at 15:26

If your server app is open source, no... I.e. you give the code away freely

If you don't want to give the code away, you need a license per developer working on the site.

    So if it was commercialized software application using Sencha Ext JS, and we had 5 developers who are currently developing the application and 10,000 users connecting to the production web server hosting the application, we would only need to buy licenses for 5 developers? – MacGyver Aug 10 '12 at 23:42

    Yes, 5 licenses – Jonno Aug 11 '12 at 0:07
  • Would you need to share your server side code too? For example would I need to share the NodeJS routes that are implemented for the ajax-api that the Ext JS application is using? – Christiaan Westerbeek Apr 12 '16 at 15:43
  • As far as I understand it, yes, you would need to share the server side code too. – Jonno Apr 13 '16 at 9:57
