Next-gen Enyo 2.0 framework rises from ruins of Web OS

Stable cross-platform release for open-source toolkit

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Devs at HP's Enyo project – the framework that once powered the applications on HP's discarded WebOS TouchPad tablet – have just released a stable version of the second major iteration, Enyo 2.0.

The first iteration of Enyo – Enyo 1.0 – was intended as a platform-independent tool kit and was focused on apps on the Web OS Touchpad, though a few were available for webOS smartphones. The second major version, Enyo 2.0, which was also open-sourced by HP in January, works for many more places on the web: supporting mobile and desktop browsers from iOS to IE8, including Android, Safari, Firefox and Chrome. At the time of the January release, 2.0 was still in its preliminary form. Both versions of the Enyo code were open-sourced under the Apache License.

The Enyo team said:

It's a beautiful cross-platform UI toolkit, a layout library supporting multi-form factor application designs, and lots of other goodies you can use today to build first-class apps for the web or mobile with native look and feel.

Key features of the new alpha version of Enyo 2.0 include: new user interface widgets in the "Onyx" widget library and the Enyo 2 Sampler, which lets users browse samples of all the UI controls, see different options for configuring them, and view source code for the samples.

It also includes a new, simpler Contributor Process, which allows Enyo to accept larger code contributions from the community. ®
