If you start the latest version of Quokka.js ‘Pro’ edition with an expired license, you will receive a message telling you that you that your license has expired and you must either:
- Purchase a renewal with a 30% discount
- Switch to Quokka’s community edition
- Downgrade to a previous version
How do I determine the previous version I can use?
All previous versions are listed at the bottom of this page. You can paste your Quokka license to determine the latest version you can use.
I thought my license was ‘perpetual’?
Why do I need to renew to get the latest updates?
I didn’t upgrade Quokka, so why is my license no longer valid?
Some Editors (VS Code and Atom) can update themselves or their extensions automatically, without you knowing. You will need to make sure that you are using a version of your Editor and a version of Quokka that are supported by your license.
How do I continue to use my expired license with VS Code?
To continue to use the version of Quokka your license entitles you to, you will need to check your license expiry date and download a version of Quokka released before that date, and a version of VS Code released before that date.
You will need to stop VS Code from automatically updating extensions. You can disable auto-update with the
Updating Extensions command which sets the
extensions.autoUpdate setting to
false. If you do not want VS Code to
even check for updates, you can set the
extensions.autoCheckUpdates setting to
You will also need to stop VS Code from automatically updating itself. To disable automatic VS Code Editor updates,
you must change the
update.channel setting from
none. To modify the update channel, go to
File > Preferences > Settings (macOS: Code > Preferences > Settings), search for
change the setting to
none. On Linux, if you installed VS Code from a system package manager, you will need to
configure your package manager so that it does not update VS Code.
How do I continue to use my expired license with Atom?
To continue to use the version of Quokka your license entitles you to, you will need to check your license expiry date and download a version of Quokka released before that date, and a version of Atom released before that date.
You will need to disable automatic Atom editor updates. You can disable automatic updates by editing your Atom
Core Settings and by unchecking
Automatically Update. You must decline any future prompts from Atom to update.
Once you determine the Quokka version you are entitled to, run
apm install [email protected]_VERSION in your terminal. You must ignore Atom’s prompts to update Quokka.
If you are using a plugin to automatically update packages, you will need to disable that plugin or configure
it to ignore Quokka.
How do I continue to use my expired license with IntelliJ?
To fix this for IntelliJ editors, you need to ensure that the version of the IntelliJ editor that you are using was released prior to your Quokka license expiring.
Once you determine the Quokka version you are entitled to, you must
download the previous version and install it in IntelliJ using the
Install plugin from disk... command.
How do I work out which editor versions I can use with my license?
If you have received an invalid license message from Quokka from inside your editor, the message that you receive will tell you the latest editor version that is compatible with your perpetual license. You can install the latest version of Quokka in the latest version of your editor with your license key to receive this message.
If you prefer, you can determine a valid version of your editor by selecting the last released version of your editor before your Quokka license expired. The links below can help you to find a valid editor version:
