I would probably like to use the base Atom Editor to create tools that I can sll in the market … can someone advise on same - can I do that what are the terms etc.
Frankly, it’s really tough dealing with piracy if you’re selling precompiled binaries. If I wanted to do something like that, I’d feel like I had to do it over software as a service platform.
What was your plan for this? I’m really curious.
I have a couple of hundred Ideas mate … but will look fwd to it if its legal ? … if some one can advise it should be good
If you’re serious about this, you need to consult a professional. There are few (no?) lawyers on this site, and that’s what you’d need. We can give opinions, but that’s all they would be.
Can you suggest any name ? I can post to them or like ping them ? is that possible
Having said that, atom and most but not all of its packages are licensed under the MIT license. That’s a very permissive license which says you can do just about anything except sue Github, Inc. or any contributor over the software
Gotcha !! it does say the below …

So it should be good then … lets see this is gonna be my first venture
What i am trying to do is … Use this as a base UI only. And develop commercial software …
Dude, this is built using electron. Have fun.
Caret is also built on electron and being sold for money.
What I am trying to do is Leverage Atom. I dont need to build in lot of things, i can re use them
Did you make anything?
