Clarification on Rules

Hi,

The Rules say that "*Facebook platform products for closed source submissions: Login, Account Kit, Analytics, Messenger"

Does this mean, that if my solution is Open Source, I cannot use Facebook Login, Account Kit, Analytics or Messenger?

Regards

    Hey Khyati!

    Good question. You can use both closed and open source tools in an open source project.

    You must use at least one open source product to count as an open source project, but you can also use the close source products in addition to them. There is a judging criterion for the extend to which you leveraged the Facebook products so the more the merrier :)

    Hi Kyati, we think this is clear but we want to be double-sure you understand: To be eligible for any prize OTHER than the Best Open Source App prize, your application must use at least one of these tools: Login, Account Kit, Analytics, Messenger.

    To be eligible for the Best Open Source App prizes, your application MUST be made open source AND use at least one of these: React, React Native, React VR, Caffe2, Fresco, Litho, ComponentKit Yoga, GraphQL, Relay. Include a link to your open repo.

    You may use tools from both categories, but in order to be eligible for the open source prize, your application must be made open source.

    All the best,
    Stefanie

    What do you mean by - "your application must be made open source" ?

    Hey Amit,

    You must share your code publicly (via Github or similar) and include a link to it in your submission form.

    Best,
    Stefanie
