Git Repository for VIVALDI



  • Hi friends B) ... I'm looking to browse source code for this [b]neat browser[/b] :kiss: and I discovered it at [url=https://vivaldi.com/source/]https://vivaldi.com/source[/url]. Source files are going big and it looks like its size increasing every new version. I'm wondering why you don't put it on [url=https://github.com/]Github[/url] or make your own [url=https://about.gitlab.com]GitLab Server[/url], because it's easy to distribute and contribute as well. Thanks for let this app to be exists for your friends ;)



  • Ok, so teh search engine queries:

    ... Are indexing a reddit.com/ page @https://www.reddit.com/r/vivaldibrowser/comments/41v0gl/why_isnt_vivaldi_on_github/

    "Why isn't Vivaldi on Github?" says that it isn't "open-source" & that "it belongs to one person (Jon)".

    ^^ I don't have a clue, whether that's true!.. It, actually, wouldn't be so bad to know - what's up with Vivaldi && GitHub. =)

    Edit: Strangely enough, there are two (2) random (?!) GitHub entries for "Vivaldi", which haven't been updated in years... Why are they, even, there; AND, is this something that should be allowed? o.0

    While vivaldi is clearly not open source (vivaldi://terms) I won't call it (full) closed source.
    The point is actually vivaldi has different licences: the EULA for the specific part of vivaldi (like the UI) and the BSD licence - for the chromium part.
    However, (most) vivaldi code can be found here and the repos on github are usually improvements made from vivaldi users - as vivaldi hooks or specific chromium "fixes" which can be merged by devs or used in the stable/snapshot branch chosen.
    So for me, vivaldi could be consider a cool mixed sources software :)
    About the whole code tree on github, that probably is not allowed. Portions of improved code usually are fine, but probably only for BSD parts.



  • Why do you need a Git repo!?
