Our great sponsors

  • windmill

    Open-source developer platform to turn scripts into workflows and UIs. Open-source alternative to Airplane and Retool. has support for SSO (GitHub/Google/Microsoft/GitLab) and any custom ones in the open source version

  • ToolJet

    Extensible low-code framework for building business applications. Connect to databases, cloud storages, GraphQL, API endpoints, Airtable, Google sheets, OpenAI, etc and build apps using drag and drop application builder. Built using JavaScript/TypeScript. 🚀

    How can ToolJet relicense AGPL contributions to a less restrictive license?

    The code is AGPL and accepts volunteer contributions under that license.

    However, in their AGPL announcement it says:

    > We do have a commercial license that overrides the AGPL license. This commercial license allows organizations to make changes to ToolJet and provide it as a service.

    Does the hosted ToolJet service include unreleased code, leveraging this commercial license?

    Every volunteer contributor would need to agree to relicensing and/or would need to have previously agreed to assign their copyright to ToolJet, right?

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • sso-wall-of-shame

    A list of vendors that treat single sign-on as a luxury feature, not a core security requirement.

  • budibase

    Budibase is an open-source low code platform that helps you build internal tools in minutes 🚀

    I wanted to use ToolJet in my company, but SSO has been playing an important role for my company's security and compliance needs, even though we have only around 100 people. I'm getting lazy to adopt any product that doesn't provide that to me (for a reasonable price).

    In the case of no/low-code tools, Budibase[1] offers SSO on its open source edition, which makes it easier for me to adopt it and gain confidence in the product before committing to an enterprise plan with obscure prices and shady sales techniques.

    But it's a shame, since the competitors in this space are awesome (ToolJet, AppSmith, NocoDB, Baserow, etc) but rarely consider SSO as a simple and basic feature. They usually put SSO as an enterprise feature in the highest price tier possible.

    Btw, Grist[2] is another honorable mention in this space with open source support for SSO.
