Is the cloudBit™ open source?


Currently, parts of the cloudBit™ hardware, firmware and software system are open source and available under the GNU General Public License v3 (GPL-3). Parts are closed for the sake of security of our users.

The linux kernel and core operating system components, bootloaders and some application files are available here. PCB layouts and schematics are available here.

We strive to strike the right balance between open and closed so that we give as much as we can to our community while meeting our business objectives and maintaining the security of our products. 

In the meantime, the cloudBit™ does have an open API, enabling powerful customization! You can find our API documentation here
