Using EPPlus as an enterprise product

May 16, 2014 at 6:45 PM
I just downloaded and used EPPlus today and found it to be a tremendous tool. Now I want to convince my boss to put the dll up on our dev, test, and prod servers. He is more than willing to do this, but with a caveat.

We only can put third party products on our servers that we have a legal relationship with. Since EPPlus is a free product, that legal relationship is missing.

So, what can we do to set such a relationship up so that I can use the product? I should say that being a free product isn't a necessity for us, so if you offer a bundling type of thing where we get notified with enhancements and fixes or other things that would be huge.

Hi Paul,

EPPlus is open source and the only licence offered by the EPPlus team is LGPL. There is a lot of commercial software available, you could have a look at Aspose Cells or Spreadsheet Gear for example.
