If you're trying to make sure future changes to a single page app (including perhaps adding a backend API) are GPL'd, is it sufficient to release the code under the GPL, or is the AGPL required?

  • GPL says anyone who gives you a copy of the app must give you the source. AGPL says anyone who runs it on a network server for you must also give you the source. Will people be distributing copies or just running servers? – user253751 Jul 3 at 16:50
  • The app as it stands is purely front-end. – Eamonn M.R. Jul 20 at 18:24
  • So will people be distributing copies or just running servers? – user253751 Jul 21 at 10:14
  • If someone serves the web page they'll be distributing a copy. If someone runs it through a precompiler, they'd also need to make any modifications to the source available, I would think. – Eamonn M.R. Jul 23 at 22:00
