The Nooku Manifesto is a constant guideline through the development and growth of the Nooku Project. Hours of discussions, years of experience and much consideration went into outlining it. If you are interested to get involved in the Nooku community, please take a moment to read it.
A project for developers
Nooku is a project for developers, integrators and hackers alike. Through collaboration we innovate and grow Nooku. We prefer to differentiate our products while working on the same common over competing with each other.
Nooku is not a product. We don’t try to solve user problems. Our goal is to make it easier for developers to create more powerful products, help them increase their productivity. Each individually we turn Nooku’s raw code into end-user products based on market strategies and business models of our choosing.

In July we launched the idea on the mailing list to setup a Nooku Incubator where developers can collaborate on building new an innovative Nooku Components. Over the past few months we have been making steady progress. The Nooku Incubator is being setup as we speak and will open it’s doors in the coming weeks.
In order to ensure that everyone has the same understanding of and commitment to Nooku when they choose to participate in the Nooku Incubator we have created a Nooku Contributor Agreement.
In simple terms, the Nooku Contributor Agreement states that:
- You retain the ownership of the Contribution
- You grant us a copyright license under the terms of the GNU LGPLv3/GNU GPLv3/GNU AGPLv3.
- You warrant that your Contribution doesn’t violate the rights of any third parties.
This agreement protects your copyright, and allows Nooku and it’s community to grow and mature while relying on established and balanced licensing terms.

Just a little while ago we passed the 2500 commits mark in our Nooku Framework SVN. With all the work being done this little milestone almost slipped under the radar. Time for a little celebration!
Some facts. When we made the Nooku Framework codebase available on Sourceforge a little over a year ago the commit counter was at 1218. Today with all spaces combined we are nearing 3250 commits, that’s 2000 commits in one year. Amazing !
Nooku is slowly earning it’s spot with the big boys as you can see from the graph (taken from Ohloh) below. Not bad huh !
