You can try out Chaquopy right now for free by cloning one of the example apps, or following the setup instructions in an app of your own.

The unlicensed SDK is fully-functional, but apps built with it will display a notification on startup, and are limited to a run-time of 5 minutes. To remove these restrictions, a license is required. All licenses are perpetual and include upgrades to all future versions.

Standard license

A standard license allows Chaquopy to be used in closed-source apps. Please contact us to request a license key, giving the following information:

  • A summary of what your app is, and how Chaquopy will be used in it.
  • How many developers on your project will be using Chaquopy.

Open-source license

For open-source apps, Chaquopy will always be free of charge. To qualify, you must first publish your app’s source code under an open-source license. The app doesn’t need to be finished, but it does need to already be using Chaquopy.

Once you’ve done that, please contact us to request a license key, giving the following information:

  • The applicationId from your build.gradle.
  • Where the app’s source code is available.

Activating a license

Once you have a license key, activate it by adding the following line to the project’s file:

chaquopy.license=<license key>
