Fonto Development Tools

Development license

Certain commands, like editor, connectors and content-quality, require a valid developer license file on your system and the permissions to run them.

A license file fonto.lic can be stored in either of these locations:

  • In your user home directory ($HOME on linux/MacOS, or %homepath% on Windows).

  • In an ancestor folder of where you are running the fdt command.

  • Verify that your license file is installed correctly by running the fdt license validate command.

To obtain a license file, or to obtain additional permissions, please contact us at or reach out to your Fonto contact if you have one available. License files are personal and we disadvice to store them in any version control system you might have.
