After getting a little bit of feed back from some different websites and communities, we figured we would still go some bit further with our market research on the product before we fully decide to commission its design. However, with the little bit of feed back we have gotten, RapidWebs has decided that we will setup the ground work at least for the project to allow some insight into its development before we have decided if it will begin.
So far things are looking good, there has been a bit of interest, and we believe that the project will be intuitive and will be a great tool for application, software, and video game developers everywhere!
Part of the ground work includes a subversion repository for version tracking as well as everything that is needed to professionally manage software development and retain stable software across version increments in a team based work environment.
The repository allows guest access aswell so apart from the great team based work environment which should accelerate development of the project, users can always have the latest version by obtaining nightly builds from the official website. This also allows the possibility for beta testing, creating patches, maintaining legacy versions and code, but most importantly the infrastructure to easily deploy new versions as well as "forks" and separate branches of the software is already in place.
Also, we have officially launched the RapidToolKit Official Website
the RapidToolkit official website is a great place to pick up information regarding the latest version of the RapidToolkit, as well as a place to learn more about the software, a place to follow its development, a place to contribute your skills, to communicate with other developers, or most importantly a place to download the latest Installer, Package, or Source.
RapidToolkit is Open-Source, but its licence is currently undecided, as it is proprietary software used in the development for some video games which are being designed by the RapidWebs Organization for the PC and for the Android and iOS Operating Systems.
However, the software is provided in two different forms. One version is the free version, which is identical to the paid version, but you may not use it in software, without a licence, which the company or owner makes a net profit from the software which uses any version of the RapidToolkit which is greater than or equal to $10, 000 CAD or equivalent dollars annually. Also, the owner may Not alter any source code without a licence as well. One Licence for the RapidToolkit is $99 CAD.
The licence suggests two things. If you make more than 10,000$ a year using the RTK, or want to edit the source code,
you have to a copy of the licence. The licence is valid indefinitely and entitles the owner to updates of the software as long as it exists. there are a few more things such as leaving some comments in the source code, or other very basic non intrusive things.
However, using the free version, you can create and manage logic using both native and scripted plugins, so in all honesty you
really do not need to change any source code of the actual binaries in the service or any libraries includes, as it is all customizable via its own implements. Some reasons to change the source would be to micro-manage the networking code for
said module, as well as playing with the plugin interface, or including different libraries into the core .
The website can be found at http://RTK.RapidWebs.org (website currently under development).
It is currently under development but will be finished over the next day or two.
We hope you enjoy everything provided by the company, and we hope there is some interest for our product in the market. Thank you for visiting the site if you do, and if you reply to this post with some information regarding your opinion or with
a suggestion or a simple question, we appreciate it, and we will be back to it as soon as possible. Thank you!
