FAQ

What is Ext JS Community Edition?

The Ext JS Community Edition is a great way to get started building data-intensive, cross-platform web applications. The Ext JS Community Edition includes a modern Ext JS framework with hundreds of modern components, beautiful material theme, npm based open tooling, and a limited commercial use license.

Getting started on realizing your product vision or getting your startup off the ground can be difficult without seed capital or sales revenue. Outfitting developers with professional level tools can be cost prohibitive before you have product to sell. Community Edition is both designed to allow individuals and startups to bootstrap their vision until annual revenues reach $10,000 at which point an Ext JS commercial edition license can be purchased.

If you’re an individual you may use Community Edition to create apps for your own use and apps that you can sell until your revenues reach $10,000 per year.

If you’re a small company or organization without revenue (or up to $10,000 per year in revenue), you can also use the Community Edition. Once your company’s total revenue reaches $10,000 USD per year, or your team expands to more than 5 developers, you can move up to an unrestricted Ext JS commercial license.
