Being able to automate the licensing process server-side using scripting languages is an important aspect of building business and product eco-systems. It is especially important today with the IT market shifting from purely local, custom solutions – to a cloud centric distributed service model.
Where you once called a library on your server for functionality, you now call services on another continent. This means you need tools that can be automated and put to work in a variety of situations, not just Delphi or C++ programming.
Hex4Shell is HexLicense implemented for shell automation. It is a native command-line function that allows you to generate root keys, produce serial numbers in bulk, emit single serial numbers from these lists and basically perform all the major functions of HexLicense from any scripting language.
It is a solution particularly tailored for:
- Python backend servers
- Ruby on rails
- ASP Classic / .Net
- Microsoft Service Automation
Any programming language that can invoke shell commands can naturally be used to control Hex4Shell. Be it C#, C++, Delphi, Java or JavasScript (node.js).
Pricing and availability
Hex4Shell will be available after the finalization of HexLicense for Firemonkey. Pricing has yet to be established.
