You don't need a license code on your local environment.
You need a license code to use Backpack in production. If you, your employer or your client make money using Backpack, you'll need a commercial license. If nobody makes money from the project, we'll happily issue a non-commercial code for you, for free.

Frequently Asked Questions
About the Backpack commercial licenses.
What do I get for my €49 or €299?
By purchasing a license you get official permission to use all Backpack packages in a commercial application that you develop (for yourself, your employer or a client). All updates for that major version are also included in this price, of course (currently Backpack CRUD 3.x.x). Your invoice will contain a unique license code and instructions to place it in your .ENV file.
How long does this license last?
The Backpack commercial license lasts for ever (like diamonds), for one domain name. If in a few years you need to rewrite everything, you don't need to purchase another license.
Does it cover subdomains?
Yes. This license also covers unlimited subdomains.
Does it cover sublicensing?
No. This payment does not cover inclusion in free/paid packages, multi-tenant software or forks. A special sublicensing agreement is needed for that. Please contact us and we'll tell you more about it.
Does it cover parked domains?
If you're running the exact same app under two or more domains, sure. Just purchase one license, send us an email and we'll add those parked domains. But you know that's bad for your SEO, right? You should probably be using a 301/302 redirect.
Does it cover local/staging/testing environments?
No. That's because you don't need a license code to use Backpack in other environments than produciton. Just go ahead and install it.
Can I buy more licenses at the current price and use them in the future?
Sure. Licenses are for ever. Just write "future project" instead of the domain name. You can change it afterwards with an email.
Can I get a free commercial license?
If you're a non-trivial code contributor on Github, yes, of course. You will not only get free commercial licenses, but you'll become a better developer, interact with awesome people and help the community. Already contributed and got nothing? Very sorry about that, please email us and we'll get that sorted.
I've started my project when Backpack was under MIT License. Do I have to pay?
No, you don't. But you can, if you want to help out. Commercial licenses have been introduced in November 11th 2016 - if you started your project before that date, use Backpack 3.1.x for free. If you upgrade to Backpack\CRUD 3.2.0+, please purchase a commercial license or ask for a free commercial code if you qualify.
