Today, we opened a public github repository for WPCloudDeploy, marking a new era in the open-source journey for WPCD.
While WPCD was always an open-source project, the code was only available to folks who purchased a license.
However, starting today, the source-code for the core plugin is available to anyone who wishes to inspect it.
We can already anticipate a few of the questions we might get, so here are the answers.
Q: Does this change your pricing for the core plugin?
No, it does not. Purchasing the core plugin provides benefits such as support, 1-on-1 walkthroughs and automatic updates.
Q: Why will anyone purchase the core plugin now?
We doubt that anyone who is going to bet their business server operations on WPCD will avoid purchasing a license…
Q: Does this change your pricing for other premium options?
No, it does not. But we are seriously considering removing the lifetime pricing option next year.
Q: Will the premium add-ons be available on Github in the future?
Right now there are no plans to move them to Github.
Q: Is there a discussion forum or other venue available for support?
The core of WPCD was always supposed to be a fully open-source project. It took us a bit to get to the point where the code was in reasonable enough shape to be made public.
If you’re not an existing WPCD customer, we hope you take the chance to give it a whirl.
