Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
If maintenance, security, support, or compliance issues are essential to your business, our Enterprise offer is likely most appropriate. Please contact our experts to discuss your needs or let us give you a live demonstration.
If you have a team of 2 to 20 developers working in a commercial setting , Team tier is your best option.
If you are using the ActiveState Platform for personal use, then Free tier is most appropriate.
If you are part of an open source project that wants to use the Platform, please see our Open Source Early Access program.
Simply put, it’s a single copy of code distributed by ActiveState that you’re running or otherwise using. For example, if you’ve built a Python distribution using the ActiveState Platform and you’re running a script with it, that would count as one Active Runtime.
For more details, please refer to the ActiveState Platform Terms of Service (Free & Team Tier).
A project on the ActiveState Platform is configuration of a specific version of Perl, Python or Tcl together with an arbitrary set of dependencies. As a Platform user, you can create your own custom projects that contain just the specific dependencies you need. All projects at the Free tier are public projects, which mean they are available to other Platform users. Private projects are available at Coder tier and above. Access to private projects is controlled by the project owner.
Yes, as long as you are staying within your Active Runtime limit. On the Free Tier, that’s a limit of 5 Active Runtimes per organization (or per individual, if for personal use). Other Tiers have higher limits.
Important: Community Editions of ActivePerl, ActivePython and ActiveTcl may no longer be used for development use. Please read our Important Changes To ActiveState’s Licensing and Pricing Model in 2021 blog post for details.
Support and maintenance are available at the Enterprise tier for ActivePython 3.6 to 3.8, ActivePython 2.7 and ActivePerl 5.16 to 5.18.
Access (with no maintenance) to these versions or ActivePython 3.x to 3.5, ActivePython 2.4 to 2.6 and ActivePerl 5.8 to 5.14, is available at the Team tier.
We are phasing out our Community Edition releases of ActivePerl, ActivePython and ActiveTcl. For more details, read our Important Changes To ActiveState’s Licensing And Pricing Model In 2021 blog post.
However, you can now easily create your own distributions of Perl, Python or Tcl using a free account on the ActiveState Platform.
We needed a licensing and pricing model that better fit the needs of modern enterprises. For a detailed answer, please read our Important Changes To ActiveState’s Licensing and Pricing Model in 2021 blog post.
The Coder, Team, and Business Tiers were merged into one tier with a new price and set of benefits.
Any subscriptions you have will expire at the end of their renewal period. At that point in time, your account will be downgraded to the Free Tier unless you purchase a Team or Enterprise Tier subscription.
