# Welcome, Developers!

Slatebox has two distinct licenses for its code, both of which are free and open for your hacking pleasure. The Slatebox app is the full slatebox.com experience, available to run on your own server. Slateboxjs is the underlying diagramming, mind-mapping, and visualization library used at Slatebox.com.

Not sure which to use? The Slatebox development guide will get the Slatebox.com app running on your machine quickly. Slateboxjs is a lower level module that allows programmatic control of "slates" -- the library itself is included in the Slatebox App.
