I am using Glade to build my application whose license is GPL. I wonder what the license of the code generated by Glade is and if I can use it in a public application.

Does somebody know the answer or where to look at to retrieve this information ?

  • I think this is something that you should ask a lawyer. Also "public" is not a very descriptive attribute. – slhck Nov 12 '18 at 14:41
  • By public I meant an application doawnloadable by anybody on the internet or that I could sell. – M.Brbr Nov 12 '18 at 14:46
  • Whether something is public/downloadable or not is not really relevant in this case. It's more about whether it's commercial/non-commercial, or, in the case of GPL, whether you are supplying the source code with your application, under the same terms. See this for more info: tldrlegal.com/license/… (The "library" license that Glade uses has been superseded by LGPL.) Anyway, I'd recommend asking on their forums as well. – slhck Nov 12 '18 at 14:51
  • Belongs on opensource.stackexchange.com - will depend on which version of GPL, and if Glade includes any of its own code, etc. – ivanivan Nov 12 '18 at 14:54

I found what I wa looking for on https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Glade :

"Interfaces designed with glade may have any license, as they are not covered by the GPL's phrase 'a work based on the Program'. " .
