Adobe is an active participant in open source efforts. Adobe supports open activities by contributing to existing projects, releasing code as open source, and providing open access and conversations.
About Adobe Open Source Efforts
Open source as a development philosophy is recognized to both increase innovation and drive adoption.
Adobe recognized this early, starting with the contribution of Tamarin to the Mozilla Foundation. We have released hundreds ofpieces of technology under open source licenses. On GitHub alone, there are currently 189 public repositories, more than 10 GB of code and represent 13 organizations within Adobe. Open source projects such as Brackets, Source Code, Topcoat and snap.SVG are all top-rated projects on GitHub and actively extend the capabilities of the open Web.
Our teams also continue to contribute to open source browser applications, such Gecko, Blink and WebKit. The Adobe Web platform repository is a great resource that highlights a number of significant open source contributions for such capabilities as CSS shapes and regions.
Adobe has been equally active and ambitious in our release and support of open source technologies and communities. We are extremely active in the Apache foundation including the Apache Web server, as well as active involvement and heavy contribution to Apache Felix, Apache Oak, Apache Aries, Apache Jackrabbit, Apache Sling and Apache Stanbol. Additionally, such projects exist within Apache that originated with the larger Adobe, such as Apache Flex and Apache Cordova.
At Adobe, the Web is not only about the technology and code but also about the content and its delivery. The benefits of an “open” Web that it allows content providers to choose what and how they wish to delivery content, and we hope to move this needle even further in the years to come.
Principal Scientist Narciso Jaramillo introduces Brackets, a new open-source code editor from Adobe, and demonstrates two features that improve productivity: inline editing for accessing code snippets from various files and live development for viewing updates instantly.
