Do Riseup, ProtonMail, and Openmailbox webmails use only free JavaScript code?

I believe Riseup uses Roundcube as webmail. Last time I checked, both the backend PHP and the client JavaScript code of Roundcube are free software. If Riseup does any bug fixing or feature implementation, I hope they're doing it upstream or they publish their modified version of Roundcube.

I've had a quick look at ProtonMail and it seems to have free JavaScript client code. I believe we can get a copy of that Expat-licensed code by running:

git clone https://github.com/ProtonMail/WebClient.git

I'm not sure if they've released the backend software. Probably not.

(Also, ProtonMail seems to want to provide IMAP/SMTP for desktop clients, but haven't managed yet:

I haven't checked OpenMailBox yet.

Riseup mail also offers the awesome squirrel mail interface which doesn't require the use of any javascript code in order to be completely functional. In fact riseup is just about one of the very few mail providers which can be signed for and used in anonymity with TorBB without javascript in the browser.

Riseup serves free JavaScript according to https://www.fsf.org/resources/webmail-systems (PrtonMail is under review).
