Open Source Air UI components (fuse)

Hello there,

 

I've seen that RIM is very friendly towards open source software. You guys are making nice contributions to big projects like WebKit and Qt. You also have cool open source products like Ripple and WebWorksSDK. You are even helping on porting a lot of open source C/C++ libraries and frameworks to the NDK.

 

All this is awesome. But isn't something missing?

 

No AIR open source libraries, frameworks what so ever?! At least I couldn't find anything. Is there any? Have you guys made any contributions towards any open source Air project? If so, please share and market it.

 

My plead, and I guess it's also the plead of many other Air developers, is to start open sourcing your Air projects like the fuse UI Components.

 

Is this idea such a nonsense idea considering what we've seen? Wouldn't it match what are guys trying to achieve with the other frameworks?

 

Let's talk. I guess we all want to hear.

Cheers.

 

 

Cheers!

Re: Open Source Air UI components (fuse)

Hi everyone. We do not have any current plans to open source the components of our BlackBerry SDK for Adobe AIR. There are IP issues with going that route. If we are able to change this in the future, I will let everyone know.

 

Regards,

Dustin

Re: Open Source Air UI components (fuse)

Thanks for the clarification Dustin.

 

I hope one day we can contribute directly to the framework and make it as good as possible.

 

If anyone else support the idea, please say so.

Cheers!
