HP begins making webOS open source, launches Enyo

Thursday 26 January 2012 | 10:12 CET | News
HP has begun executing its plan to deliver an open webOS by committing to a schedule for making the platform's source code available under an open source license (the Apache License). The company aims to complete this in its entirety by September. HP also announced it is releasing version 2.0 of webOS' developer tool, Enyo. Enyo 2.0 enables developers to write a single application that works across mobile devices and desktop web browsers, from the webOS, iOS and Android platforms to the Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers – and more. The source code for Enyo is available now.
