Dear All, I am pleased to confirm that the firmware of Pycom modules is now Open source and can be found here https://github.com/pycom/pycom-micropython
Essentially, we’re releasing the source code under GPLv3 which will ensure our developer community is able to support the development of the code unhindered. It also enables 3rd party ‘board manufacturers’ or people to distribute/license the code as long as they adhere to the license, attribution and disclaimer notices. This is also an obligation placed on Pycom by some of our technology partners. We have also placed on the repo a CLA (Contributor License Agreement) based on the Apache license with a few tweaks (which makes it more relevant for our hardware community). As I have previously offered, happy to address any questions you may have. Simply post on Forum or email me ([email protected]) and I will collate all the information over a period of a week. We will then compile and submit back an FAQ document to address the main pertinent questions. Best wishes – Fred
The license on GitHub is a PDF, but here is the section on the site that is pretty interesting.
Where the Program has an interactive user interface (e.g. telnet, ssh, http), the following text will be displayed upon first connection of each session to such interface:
