    Pub.dev, the Dart package repository, written in Dart

    Sounds like it would be better if pub.dev would make a change and support additional license types. As a developer I definitely want to see syncfusion components if I am looking for something on pub.dev. I prefer quality to free. Second dart and flutter aren't meant for everything to be free any more than any other programming language. Open source != free. Finally on syncfusion, there license is extremely generous you don't have to pay until you make a million from your app. That’s a great “problem“ to have and you surely got more value than the license cost at that point. And if you really don't want to pay them you could always pull at their component and build your own if you really want to be a jerk.

  • flutter-widgets

    Syncfusion Flutter widgets libraries include high quality UI widgets and file-format packages to help you create rich, high-quality applications for iOS, Android, and web from a single code base.

    I've opened a GitHub issue on Syncfusion's Flutter package repo here, asking them to change their license. It essentially mentions the same things I mentioned here.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • flutter-examples

    This repository contains the Syncfusion Flutter UI widgets examples and the guide to use them.

    Disclaimer: This is a commercial package. To use this package, you need to have either Syncfusion Commercial License or Free Syncfusion Community license. For more details, please check the LICENSE file.

  • site-www

    I think the documentation is meant suggest using an OSI license, I've filed a PR to fix this.
