I'm building a simple user backend and I would like to use Redactor for a couple fields. I see Redactor is a commercial product.

  1. When I pay for Craft Pro does that include a license to use Redactor?

  2. From an implementation standpoint, can I use the libraries already available?

I guess I wouldn't mind loading in another version of redactor for my front end. But I'm mostly curious if my craft license covers a redactor license.


Brandon has answered this here.

tl;dr: technically possible, legally questionable, in practice not a good idea.

  • We heard back from Imperavi on the legal aspect of it. Updated the answer here. – Brad Bell Jan 16 '15 at 1:29

    @Derek But if you hadn't asked, we wouldn't have gotten the legal update (legally fine) – Marion Newlevant Jan 21 '15 at 19:31
