Tyk Open Source

Last updated: 2 minutes read.

Open source is at the heart of what we do. Anything that is API Gateway-related, lives in the Gateway, or is critical for the Gateway to work is open and freely available via our Github.

Our commitment to open source also delivers a host of benefits for our users: signup for free with Tyk, receive securely packaged open source packages, getting started guides, access to our community and all of the latest open source information.

If you are new to Tyk API Gateway or just want to quickly take it for a spin in just 3 steps, head over to our quick start guide. If you want to deploy it in a specific platform check our installation options page.

Please show your support for the Gateway by clicking the GitHub link, then adding your star. Star TykTechnologies/tyk

The Tyk Team has created and maintains the following components, which are fully Open Source and available under Mozilla Public License 2.0 (MPL). Star the Tyk components you use by clicking the appropriate button:

MPL is a copyleft licence that is easy to comply with. You must make the source code for any of your changes available under MPL, but you can combine the MPL software with proprietary code, as long as you keep the MPL code in separate files. Version 2.0 is, by default, compatible with LGPL and GPL version 2 or greater. You can distribute binaries under a proprietary license, as long as you make the source available under MPL. This is just a brief overview of MPL, you should refer to the MPL licence in full and if you are in any doubt about how this licence impacts you, please contact us to discuss.

You can find additional FAQs regarding the MPL licence here.
