As we wrap up the month of April, there are a number of developments we’d like to highlight.
- Enyo 2: Today we are releasing a new build of Enyo 2. This release features significant work on mobile scrolling performance and adds a highly-optimized cross-platform virtual list control.
- Ares 2: We are also making the Ares 2 github repository public today. We are still in the early stages of Ares 2 development, but we’re ready to share our progress and continue developing in the open. Ares 2 is a complete re-imagining of Ares. Most importantly, it’s now paired with Enyo 2, which means that you will be able to build apps that are fully cross-platform across mobile and the desktop web.
There are significant changes to Ares itself, as well. The Ares 2 backend is built on Node.js and is designed to be run either locally or in the cloud. And regardless of where Ares itself is running, Ares 2’s pluggable, decentralized approach to file storage will allow you to keep your files almost anywhere you want.
- Community Gallery: The Enyo Community Gallery is growing fast! We are up to 33 community-submitted components for Enyo 2. Thank you to everyone who has contributed components to the gallery so far – and keep ‘em coming!
Stay tuned for more news. With today’s releases behind us, we’ll focus next on delivering an elegant, flexible solution for UI panels that works across displays of various sizes. We’re also working on making it easier to set up, maintain and build Enyo projects, and on fleshing out the Onyx widget set.
