I want to create a website but i'm not sure about the GPL license. If I create a application / website with a text editor there use GPL license should my application / website use copyleft?.
And if I should use GPL can I so get a text editor / IDE there not require any license (free)?.
Oh, and I have looked at https://www.jetbrains.com/webstorm/ webstorm but i'm not sure that the editor require copyleft?.
Best How To :
You can use a GPL'ed tool to produce things w/o any impact on the allowable range of licensing for the things you make. However, if you link to GPL code (linking a library or including GPLed code outright) then your code has to be GPL also.
This is why the LGPL was invented -- it is used for libraries where the authors intend to allow linking w/ non-GPL or proprietary code bases.
There are details on this in a post on how GPL applies to interpreted languages (although the focus is slightly different, it may be more accessible than the rather daunting GPL FAQ)
You'll note some people claim legal ambiguities about whether dynamic linking can be disallowed, but for me personally the bottom line is what the code's authors intended and not what is legally tested.
