Hi Joao:

This vis.js library seems amazing, after looking at the screenshots and some examples.
Take a look at this pages about where to place code, or how to create Wiki Plugins, etc.:



But I'm afraid you will not be able to add it to the Tiki main codebase, due to license incompatibilities, I guess.

According to this page, vis.js uses Apache v2.0 License:
http://visjs.org/#license

And according to this other page, Tiki uses LGPL 2.1, which doesn't seem to be compatible with Apache 2.0:
http://tiki.org/License

Apache 2.0 is only compatible with LGPL v3 - see http://www.dwheeler.com/essays/floss-license-slide.html(external link)


So, with current situation, you could place your plugin as a "Mod" (like PluginR, see http://doc.tiki.org/Mods & http://mods.tiki.org )

And/or request some license change or dual license to vis.js or to Tiki, I guess :-)
Regarding Tiki license, the best place to post the question, is the "Development" list:
http://tiki.org/Mailing+Lists

Keep up the good work you are doing!
(I'd love to use your vis.js plugin!)

Cheers

Xavi
