License Question



  • Dear reader,
    I am a PhD Student working in software development. To make my code available for a wider audience, I wanted to develop a GUI for my already developed algorithm, and that's why I came across the QT library. The final goal is to publish the code, open sourced, non commercially, including the GUI, which obviously is then created using the QT library.

    The question is now: Can I do this with the free QT version (by giving the proper credentials to the QT developers ofc), or am I disallowed doing this according to the License agreement? I read it, but I am in no way skilled in the art of law; that's why I wanted to double check.

    Cheers
    Sushi

    Yes that is perfectly fine, don't worry.

    You can publish it commercially, too. Free Software licenses do not restrict selling of software in any way.

    You can even create proprietary (closed source) apps using LGPL Qt. But since that's not what you want, I won't go into details.



  • Thank you very much for the fast response :)
