The Linux Foundation has used the London OSCON show to detail news of the JS Foundation now attaining status as a Linux Foundation Project.
Collaboration & sustainability
Initial projects being welcomed into the mentorship program include: Appium, Interledger.js, JerryScript, Mocha, Moment.js, Node-RED and webpack.
Blurring the boundaries
What IBM & Samsung offer
As part of this launch, IBM is contributing Node-RED to the JS Foundation. Node-RED (see: http://nodered.org/) is an environment that has reached adoption among the IoT community by establishing an ecosystem of flows and nodes that are shared by the community at large.
Examples of some the other projects include
- Appium, contributed by Sauce Labs, is an open source Node.js server used for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS and Android platforms as well as the recent addition of the Universal Windows Platform. Appium expands JS Foundation’s current test framework and tooling offerings into the device automation space.
JS Foundation will also build upon its work with standards bodies, such as W3C, WHATWG, and ECMA TC39, to nurture the open standards that browser vendors and developers rely upon.
