Philosophy of the software

ClicShopping must be built always with modularity approach and let the shop owner or the programmer to create everything around the core. (that's the way, we must tried !)
The development must be simple to understand the application for the neophyte and must be always light and not consume resources on the server.
ClicShoppingTM has always minimum functionalities to be an e-commerce software and it will stay always in this orientation.
The ecosystem application can improve the core of the solution by new features implementation in the time and after discussion with the team and the community
Create your own e-commerce software is the slogan : because every shop owner has different needs, and it can have the capacity to develop this own approach with this own module by themselves or by implementing a free module or paid module.

- At the minimum,  two members must work together, one for the development, one for the testing.
- When the development is finished, it is proposed to the community for general test (functionalities, user experience, integration respect (code, design)
- if the development is accepted, it is inserted into the core or the app inside the community or official marketplace.
- Eventually, the development team members can ask at the community the featured after look other software and have the discussion about the integration of the new functionalities.


Paid versus Free
- When the team work together with community relation, the module must be always free and maintain by the community.
- A free version is a version proposed by a community member: the mention will be  Free
- A paid version is a version developed by a professional developer: The mention will be  Paid


All contributions will be quickly evaluated and inserted on the github repository. If it's a paid application, it will be inserted in the marketplace.


Community versus professional version
For commercial approach, an app can have 2 terminations: community version and professional version (must be called like that).
The community version is a free version with some features and could be upload since Community Github.
The professional version is selling and the price is fixed by the developer and is inserted in the marketplace


Paid and professional version :

- To maintain the community and to develop animation, a commission will be taken on all paid version management across the marketplace. All professional version must have at least 20 € to propose an application.
- For the moment, we let the people to contribute, but some approach business will be proposed in the near future.

- The people must maintain their contributions else it will be placed under the community and free after 2 years of inactivity with no modification to allow the community a maintenance of this module.


The rules can be changes anytime.
