You know the whole HP dumping WebOS and open sourcing it story, right? The first version of Enyo framework was used exclusively for building WebOS apps. Now the company has announced that the second version of the framework has come out of beta and is ready for developers. The Enyo 2 cross-platform framework beta was released in January.
Unlike its predecessor, Enyo 2 can be used to build apps for iOS, Android, Safari, Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. And the Enyo team claims that the framework has an amazing community of developers, a broad set of cross-platform UI widgets, and a powerful layout library for building apps that work across all form factors, from phones to desktops.
The new Enyo also comes with new Onyx widgets, a new contributor process for submitting larger code, and an Enyo 2 Sampler that helps acquaint users with Enyo’s functionality.
The team said Enyo apps have been developed for virtually every platform and that developers have submitted more than 50 add-on libraries and plugins.
As for the WebOS , HP expects to release the beta in August, and version 1 a month later.
