WiringPi in commercial projects?

Sun Mar 11, 2018 8:38 pm

I could not find info about using WiringPi in commercial projects. If I create a new executable from my C source files but have WiringPi functions in it what needs to be done permission-wise? I see a lot of projects with wiring pi functions included.

Is google not working for you? Wiring Pi license terms are mentioned in the first paragraph of the wiringpi home page: http://wiringpi.com

It even provides a link to the license terms here: https://www.gnu.org/copyleft/lesser.html

You will have to determine from that if you can meet those terms in your venture.
