Licensing of cef.pak

Postby rhuesgen » Thu Sep 29, 2016 6:24 am

Heyho community,

we are currently evaluating using CEF in our commercial products. Recently we became aware that a lot of license remarks are part of the cef.pak file. Amongst others GNU General Public License v2.0 which would definitely mean that CEF unfortunately is no option for us.

Can anyone comment on this? Since cef.pak is a binary file is there a way to get the sources?

Any help is highly appreciated.


Regards
René

cef.pak contains resources that are used by CEF-based applications, including the license information. To view this information visit "about:credits" in a CEF-based application. All source code can be downloaded by following the instructions at https://bitbucket.org/chromiumembedded/ ... uilding.md

And would that be Google Chrome for instance?

[EDIT]
I found the list of projects using CEF on the Wiki site.

In CEF about:credits you can find some projects listed with GPL license. One example is pylint, but looks like it is only part of maybe depot tools used to build CEF/Chromium. Pylint is not compiled into the final redistributable binary.
