MS Open Tech Releases Open Source Metro Theme for jQuery Mobile

“The CSS and JavaScript theme adapts to the current theme used in Windows Phone and applies the right styling to the jQuery Mobile controls. This allows mobile HTML5 websites and hybrid applications to naturally integrate into the Windows Phone Metro style experience. This offers developers the choice of integrating the theme into their existing application and also to contribute to this open source project through GitHub,” said Microsoft’s Obeida.

The Microsoft PR machine is keen to list this development as “another community engagement milestone” and says that its team has been working closely with the Windows Phone division to support the mobile HTML5 and JavaScript open source communities over the last year.
