Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use it freely in a commercial project?

Yes! Attribution is welcomed but not required. The only caveat is that you can't re-sell this code directly as a standalone component.

Why is it free?

It's free because HeroTofu gets revenue from form submissions handling rather than forms themselves.

I've copied the form code. What are the next steps?

You should connect your form to the backend to store submissions. Subjectively the best way to do so is to navigate to https://herotofu.com/start 🙂
