Committed to open source


Our Philosophy

Overview of Community

We believe that open source software development and communities are the foundation for a healthy ecosystem of high-quality software, where everyone can learn, improve and give back. We commit to upholding this foundation and pledge by promising to continue to develop Slint in the open under an open source license, as approved by the Open Source Initiative.
