HP’s Enyo 2 Comes With Cross-Platform Support

After it was evident that HP’s webOS is not going to be a success, HP eventually had to abandon it. But after abandoning its webOS, the company had announced that it will be open-sourcing Enyo, the JavaScript framework. Initially, the first version of Enyo solely supported HP  TouchPad’s apps. But now, it has left beta and the scope of Enyo has grown to multiple platforms.


Enyo 2 comes with support for a whole range of platforms including iOS, Android, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer. According to the Enyo team, “We see a web-centric future in which there aren’t iOS apps, Android apps, Mac apps and Windows apps — there are just apps: apps that let you access your content and get stuff done, wherever you happen to be, on whatever device is handy.”

In its blog post, the team further wrote, “Today’s release marks a major milestone as we declare Enyo 2 production-ready, from both a functionality and quality point of view.” As if to demonstrate the viability of Enyo, the team has stated that Enyo apps have been submitted to all major app stores. Moreover, so far, more than 50 add-on libraries and plug-ins have been submitted by people.

The post also states, “Starting today, we are implementing a new contributor sign-off process to allow us to accept larger code contributions from the community, while keeping the codebase Apache 2.0-compatible. The process was inspired by the Linux Foundation’s kernel contribution process, and involves a simple sign-off line to be added to pull requests.”

Enyo 2 includes a number of new features which include new Onyx widgets, Enyo 2 sampler and a new contribution process.
