HP to Commit webOS to Open Source by Fall 2012


HP today began 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 company aims to complete this milestone in its entirety by September.

HP also announced it is releasing version 2.0 of webOS's 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 today, giving the open source community immediate access to the application framework for webOS.

"HP is bringing the innovation of the webOS platform to the open source community," said Bill Veghte, executive vice president and chief strategy officer, HP. "This is a decisive step toward meeting our goal of accelerating the platform's development and ensuring that its benefits will be delivered to the entire ecosystem of web applications."

The webOS code will be made available under the Apache License, Version 2.0, beginning with the source code for Enyo.

Over the first half of the year, HP will make individual elements of webOS source code available - from core applications like Mail and Calendar to its Linux kernel - until the full code base is contributed to the open source community by September:

January: Enyo 2.0 and Enyo source code
Apache License, Version 2.0
February: Intended project governance model, QT WebKit extensions, JavaScript core, UI Enyo widgets
March: Linux standard kernel, Graphics extensions EGL, LevelDB, USB extensions
April: Ares 2.0, Enyo 2.1, Node services
July: System manager ("Luna"), System manager bus, Core applications, Enyo 2.2
August: Build release model, Open webOS Beta
September: Open webOS 1.0

Enyo 1.0 made it simple to write apps that worked on a variety of webOS form factors. Version 2.0 extends this "write once, run anywhere" capability to a range of other platforms, including mobile and desktop web browsers.

The Apache License, Version 2.0 is commonly used to govern contributions to open source software projects.
