Make an app open source

Hi,
If I want to publish the source code of my app to GitHub, I have to upload the files in the aia exported from the builder or the final apk ones? Also, is it possible with the license of Makeroid?
Thanks

The files in the aia is the source code. And don’t worry about licensing.

Ok, so I have only to upload it and is it done?

yes, and if you want to track changes in Github, then extract files in aia, and upload them.

But be sure to remove any API key, if present

Perfect! Can I choose the license or I have to use the App Inventor one?

I’m not sure. I think you can choose any license of your choice.

The Apps you create

By creating and storing apps on the Makeroid Builder server you represent and warrant that you are the owner and creator of the apps, (i) that you have the authority to authorize Makeroid to store the apps on the Makeroid Builder Server and (ii) you will use the apps in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. You, and not Makeroid, are solely responsible for your apps and your use of them.

Makeroid has no proprietary rights in the apps you create with Makeroid Builder. These apps belong to you. Your apps are stored on the Makeroid Builder server. You have the right to download your apps and delete them from the server at any time. If you delete an app, there is the possibility that Makeroid may be able to continue to access it from the backups we keep for purposes of system maintenance, but these backups are periodically purged and are not designed for long-term preservation. Makeroid will strive to keep your apps and your account accessible to you for as long as you wish, but we have no obligation to do so, and Makeroid has no liability for the consequences of the service becoming unavailable or your apps becoming unavailable. We therefore strongly suggest that you maintain backup copies of valuable apps at places besides the Makeroid Builder server.

In addition, any illegal usage of Makeroid Builder could carry a suspension of the account without any previous warning. You can appeal this decission writing at [email protected].
