HP Releases Open WebOS 1.0 Roadmap and Enyo 2.0 Source Code

HP announced further details on webOS including a roadmap & its license and released Enyo 2.0 source code. The webOS code will be made available under the Apache License, Version 2.0, beginning with the source code for Enyo. Enyo is a Javascript development platform allowing developers to write applications that works across mobile devices and desktop web browsers, from the webOS, iOS and Android platforms to the Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers.

webOS roadmap

Here’s webOS roadmap until September 2012:

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

Enyo 2.0 and Enyo source code

Enyo 1.0 is a Javascript application development framework used in WebOS 3.0. With version 2.0, HP extends the reach of applications developed under this framework to other operating systems (e.g. Android, iOS..) and web browsers (e.g.Firefox, Internet explorer..).

The source code for Enyo 1.0 and 2.0 is available today, but Enyo 2.0 is still work in progress as it does not yet include any UI widgets. I assume UI widgets support will be released in April with Enyo 2.1.

You can download Enyo platform and source code on EnyoJs website. The website also has samples, documentation about Enyo 1.0 and Enyo 2.0 as well as a forum for developers.
