EigenD becomes open source!

The main body of the Eigenharp software is now Open Source software, released under the GPLv3. If you are interested this enables you to develop Agents, help fix bugs and contribute to the ongoing Eigenharp project.

There are a few things *not* released under the GPL.

  • The Pico Agent has some binary components that contain important DSP code connected with our sensor design that we have patent applications running on and do not intend to release. They represent a lot of R&D and investment for us and their absence makes little difference to the utility of the open source release.
  • Stage (the GUI application and IOS app) is not included. We may make a GPL release of this later, but the version will lag the main one we distribute by a year if we do. The backend Stage Agent is included, so all the OSC and XML/RPC functionality is included.
  • The upcoming Workbench is not included – we may also make an Open Source release to lag behind the commercial release later, but this is going to be a chargeable add on to EigenD to start with.

The main source code and needed binaries can be found on Github. If you’d like to contribute code, we do need you to agree to our Contributors Agreement. This is derived from the Canonical one used for Ubuntu projects (by kind permission of Mark Shuttleworth). You can download it here.

All details can be found on the Eigenlabs wiki.
