  1. Hey everyone, huge fan of the library so far. I am planning to sell premade websites to people and was wondering how the GSAP license fits into this scenario. To be more clear, I will be building the websites beforehand and be selling them directly to clients I meet in real life or acquire via internet ads. There is no recurring fee or "membership charge" for the service im building. Just pay once, and the website code is yours to do with as you please. Am I going to require a license for this? Thanks so much! EDIT 1: To be even more clear, the websites are premade. This is to say that the
  2. Have you ever wondered why GreenSock doesn't use a more common open source license like MIT? Sometimes our licensing model is misunderstood but hopefully after reading this article you'll see why it is so foundational to the success of our tools and why it ultimately benefits users too. Open source is awesome! If you had to write and maintain your own jQuery or React or GSAP, could you do it? Would it be as refined and reliable? Probably not. How many times have you found a library or chunk of code on github that saved you hours of development time? Open source can be a quick path to
  3. Absolutely! We would love for you to see for yourself how powerful and helpful these tools are. We created a starter template and video to show you how to use fully-functional trial versions of Club GreenSock plugins on CodePen.
  4. Nope. We don't inject any "phone home" code that tracks usage or causes the plugins to suddenly stop working on a certain date. Hopefully our tools prove so valuable and profitable to you that you'll gladly renew every year to keep getting access to the goodies.
  5. GreenSock uses a very permissive license that allows you to use the tools for free for everything except a very specific type of commercial use (if you collect a fee from multiple customers for the same app/product/site that uses GreenSock tools) which makes it extremely accessible and business-friendly while providing a small funding mechanism to sustain ongoing support, enhancement, and innovation. The web is littered with abandoned “open source” projects, but GreenSock has a years-long track record of commitment to the platform. This unique licensing model is a key component of that sustain
  6. IntertiaPlugin is a membership benefit of Club GreenSock, so you need to sign up to get that. Draggable, however, is included in all the standard downloads and you don't need a membership to get that; Draggable can be used apart from InertiaPlugin as long as you don't need the momentum-based motion. GreenSock's standard license allows you to use GreenSock tools for free in everything except a very specific type of commercial project (if you collect a fee from multiple customers for the app/product/game/site that uses GreenSock tools) which makes it extremely accessible and business-friendly wh
  7. Sure. You can upgrade directly from within your GreenSock account anytime. Contact us if you need help.
  8. Absolutely, but there are a few caveats: You may not include any of the members-only bonus plugins/classes in your open source tool (for obvious reasons) and you must clearly represent that the GreenSock code uses its own separate licensing model. We encourage the use of GreenSock tools to empower other open source tools.
  9. To make it easier on GreenSock customers, the policy is that the development company needs to maintain a valid “Business Green” membership. If, for example, Company A develops a Work Product that uses TweenLite/Max and sells it to Company B who will be licensing it to end users, Company A must maintain a “Business Green” membership. Company B would not be required to have a membership. If, however, Company B prefers to maintain a membership instead, that is perfectly acceptable as long as it wouldn’t reduce the club level, meaning if the development company has 20 developers and Company B has
  10. Absolutely. Click the "permanent" checkbox under the "Business Green" membership on the Club GreenSock page.
  11. Just sign up for a “Business Green” Club GreenSock membership at the level that corresponds to the number of developers in your organization. That’s it!
  12. There are several different “Business Green” membership levels based on the number of developers that will have access to the code. All “Business Green” memberships come with the special commercial license. Please see the Club GreenSock page for pricing details.
  13. You must include all freelancers, consultants, subcontractors, etc. in addition to full-time developers.
  14. You may cancel anytime. You'll simply lose access to updates to the bonus plugins/tools and if you're a Business Green member, your commercial license would expire at that point. You should keep it active as long you are selling/licensing your product to multiple end users. Work Products that you sold in the past do not suddenly fall out of compliance when your membership lapses – you just can't continue to sell products that use GreenSock tools after your membership expires. If you don't want to worry about the license expiring, you can simply get a permanent license. Oh, and we don't add any
  15. Yes, as long as the source files are unaltered (including copyright notices therein). Your customer may use GreenSock tools (including bonus plugins/classes you got with your membership) only as a part of your Work Product. However, if your customer wants to use the GreenSock tools outside of your Work Product (or make customizations to your Work Product) to resell to their customers, they would need to get their own "Business Green" Club GreenSock membership to cover their usage. If your Work Product is given away freely and you're not distributing members-only plugins, you're golden...er, gr
  16. No. The commercial license that comes with “Business Green” Club GreenSock memberships applies to an unlimited number of apps/sites/software/games that your organization sells while the membership is active (see the license agreement for specifics). Please be sure, however, to get the appropriate membership level based on the number of developers associated with your organization.
  17. I'm developing a WordPress plugin that I would like to include GSAP in for animating elements. I would like to list my plugin in the WordPress.org plugin directory. One of the requirements for listing a plugin in the WordPress plugin directory is that all files utilized in the plugin need to be compatible with the GNU General Public License v2 or later. Are any of the GSAP licenses compatible with GNU General Public License v2 or later? The reason I ask is because I have seen a couple of WordPress plugins using GSAP. But my interpretation of the GSAP license is that it
  18. Hello, I want to make sure the detail about GSAP license: I'm working for local startup which the product is similar to airbnb, booking.com, trip.com, etc. And I want to implement some animation using GSAP (found this very easy to use) do I still need the GSAP business license? Thanks!
  19. Does Greensock's "No charge" license covers support for envato marketplaces? I want to make a Wordpress Theme/Plugin which will use GSAP as it's animation core and sell it to Themeforest/Codecanyon. As the "No charge" license states that: You may use the code at no charge in commercial or non-commercial apps, web sites, games, components, and other software as long as end users are not charged a fee of any kind to use your product or gain access to any part of it. If your client pays you a one-time fee to create the site/product, that's perfectly fine and qualifies under the "no charge" licen
  20. @Carl - I am working in a large business this week on a short contract, tasked with creating a little animation that is perfectly suited for the ScrambleText plugin but the business here does not have a license for the premium plugins. My question is: Given that I have a license, can I use the premium plugin? The finance team here already said no and the ones in charge of acquiring such licenses are already telling me to write an equivalent function to do the same thing. My understanding is that if the use of the plugin is limited to this one and only campaign, I can us
  21. Dear support, I am new to GSAP and I consider to become member of business Green, because I am amazed by GSAP's potentional for animation. I am especially interested in the SVGMorph plugin. Ideally I would want to try this: (If it's allowed with the license) Is it allowed with the business Green license to create software plugins from the GSAP library ? 1. Am I allowed to use the (unaltered) GSAP library and the (unaltered) SVGMorph script to create a small custom app that outputs svg data. 2. Use this output svg data from the custom app to drive
  22. Hi All, I'm wanting to use drawSVG and Throwprops plugin on my personal site, there are no chargeable sections, it's just a portfolio site. I want to know what happens after a year, do these plugins disable? I don't mind paying the $99 once, but I can't justify an ongoing cost forever for 2 effects. Can someone please clarify what happens after the year? Cheers
  23. Hi there, I'm developing a website for a client, where a user can buy exercise plans. I'm using gsap on the frontpage of the site. I'm thought i need a Business License, but then i read here so i'm not sure anymore. Thank you
  24. Hello, I want to make sure the detail about GSAP business license: `` Our paid license is only necessary in projects that you sell to multiple end users. `` If I'm making the E-Commerce website with GSAP, do I need the GSAP business license? (I tried to use Contact Us page to ask this question, but the form submit always got error) Thanks!
