Philosophy

Turbo CSS is the web design language of Boomla, the website builder and web application platform. Turbo CSS is a major step forward in web design, so we want to help advance the state-of-the-art. Boomla invests heavily in research and development to make the best product without compromises. To make this sustainable and not kill our core business, we don't want to arm our direct competitors with the tools and products resulting from our research efforts. So the idea behind the license is to allow using Turbo CSS for all use cases that are not competing with our core business. This covers just about all websites out there.

F.A.Q.

Can I build templates with Turbo CSS and sell them on marketplaces?

Yes.

Can I use Turbo CSS in a SAAS app that I create?

Yes - as long as it is not a website builder or a SAAS app from the restricted list.

Do I need to attach this license to the templates I create?

The above license does not apply to the generated CSS. Unless you bundle the Turbo CSS compiler with your template, you can license the template however you want.
