Cubeia Poker & Casino

Cubeia Poker no longer open source

We have decided to close the Cubeia Poker repository and no longer offer an AGPL version of Cubeia Poker.

One of the main reasons is that Cubeia Poker is getting more complex as a product. It is not your typical open source project, it is a fully integrated system rather than a library or tool. Right now Cubeia Poker in it’s minimal version includes a game server, an HTML5/Javascript client, about five web-services and two different databases (MySQL and MongoDB).

Additionally, it does take time and effort to make sure the open source repository stays updated and is not polluted with our other artifacts. Helping out the community, while rewarding on a personal level, also costs money and time. As a small company it is hard to justify this cost.

Lastly, we want to be able to take Cubeia Poker in a direction that is more closely integrated with our not-open sourced products (achievements, bonus-system etc.) and that would be very costly to do while still keeping an AGPL fork open and up to date.

So what will happen now?

The Cubeia Poker repository will be closed. We will not maintain any fork or similar open source repository of Cubeia Poker. All artifacts in our public Maven repository will still be available including the 1.0.0 release.

What about existing code I have checked out?

You are still allowed to use and work with the old AGPL source code as long as you still adhere to the AGPL license.

UPDATE 2014-05-26

We will make the AGPL repository publically available for a while longer. The AGPL repository now has a 1.0.0 version tagged that depends on stable external releases. This repository will be open for at least one week and after that we will close it again.

    Van only say one thing shame on you , exact what I said to my partner then you have gots lots of code from the open source you will close this project shame on you again , money over the power 🙁 🙁 🙁

    But okay thats your software and your dession, but we will continue use the open source, as we downloaded it before you close it and build our own stabile version. if interrested you can buy our master for 50.000$ then it’s finish.

    So the question is and what has not been answered here is:
    Q – Companies that have downloaded the open source software and who are spending alot of money developing this what was open source program before the 14 May 2014 what is the sotuation with that ?

    A clear answer would warmly be welcomed

      Also, those who have invested in our open source poker platform are welcome to contact us for a commercial license in case the latest released open source package doesn’t fit your needs.

        Sorry, but your commercial licensing terms / pricing is simply unrealistic to market/user needs.

      as already answered by others, you can still use the code.

      The bad news: it is virtually impossible to maintain / evolve the code-base.

    Is a place where I can find the latest open source version?
    How much are you charging for the commercial version?

    The technical rationales are completely invalid. The work I had done (folder system) allowed for a simple setup and installation. Sadly, cubeia was never interested to bring this to an production level, increasing this way the general code quality.

    Shutting down the project this way (abrupt, without even leaving the 1.0.0 repo-code intact, thus forks can update without hassle), is *very* unprofessional. And its very bad for the image of cubeia.

    So, please at least make a clean shutdown, and leave the repo with the 1.0.0 intact. At least for a few months.

        Ok, I’ve overreacted with the “completely invalid”. But finally, modular&service oriented design make it simple to have multiple version (if you develope with some discipline).

        In any way, how can I trust Cubeia now? How can I know that the same will not happen with Cubeia Firebase/Network?
