    I know OroCRM and OroCommerce with postgresql support is not available in community editions.

    Can I develop apps using oroplatform (which has community edition only) with postgresql? Is it technically possible with oroplatform architecture? If yes, is it legal to start a project from scratch with oroplatform & postgresql?

    Community version of OroPlatform is licensed under the MIT license, so you can use it in your project to build a custom application with any technology you want, as long as you write your own code to support that technology.

    Thank you for the answer. So there will be no license violation for developing applications with oroplatform (community edition) & postgresql support.

    I have tried to install oroplatform community edition with postgreql and it seems it worked. On the other hand, on system requirements page, there is a title Enterprise Edition Software (https://oroinc.com/oroplatform/doc/current/system-requirements#enterprise-edition-software), clearly seperating MySQL and Postgresql support.

    Does oroplatform (community edition) architecture accord with postgresql connection in general? Is it safe to start a project with oroplatform community edition & postgresql?

    We test community edition only with Mysql.

    So even if the installation will go without errors, there is no guaranty that all the functionality will work as expected after.
    And we are not fixing any bugs related to Postgres support on Community edition.

    Community edition with Mysql is not a bad combination. It is fast enough on a small amount of data and also reliable enough as it’s well tested by Oro and many small businesses that are using community edition with Mysql.

    With the big amount of data just switching to Postgres usually will not have any valuable advantages.
    On an enterprise edition, there are a lot of other architectural improvements that work in combination with Postgres, and the most important – the support of all the edge cases specific to individual businesses needs.

    And as Michael said you can use community edition with Postgres on your own risk if you agree with spending time by yourself on the support.
