Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
The code can be used to modify TouchPads in order to let developers learn how the OS works and prepare them to apply that knowledge to Open webOS 1.0 in the future, the team said on their website. Developers can use the Community Edition release to modify the card view, launcher and notifications among other things, they said.
The source code was made available online for download and can be used under the Apache License, Version 2.0, which is one of the more permissive licenses, allowing developers to mix open-source code with their own inventions and sell products using the combined code.
The Open webOS team worked closely with the WebOS Internals team to release the Community Edition.
