Ammy is now permanently free for any type of development. It doesn’t matter if it’s internal commercial project or open source charity one. It’s free for everybody!
Since launching Ammy we heard lots of very positive feedback. Most people love Ammy’s concise syntax and seemingly endless possibilities, especially compared to vanilla XAML. But there was one recurring problem bothering people – licensing model. Small business customers are afraid to invest in a new technology. Large enterprise ones require notoriety to bring in new technology to their stack. It’s a vicious cycle.
It would be a real tragedy for such a cool project as Ammy to fail because of mistakes made in licensing model. More than anything we want Ammy to succeed and become a new trend in XAML development. With Ammy everyone can become a better UI developer and every project can become a UX masterpiece.
So, it was decided that Ammy should be free for everyone and some other ways of monetization should be found. At the moment there are few ideas, some already implemented like “Ammy school” and “Premium support”. Others are still in idea form, like an extended library(-ies) full of cool features for business customers. If you have more thoughts on the subject, please share in comments or via email.
