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.
We're happy to announce that the Java implementation of #Sightly has been integrated into Apache Sling. Sightly is the new secure template language shipped with Adobe Experience Manager 6. The name “Sightly” (meaning “pleasing to the eye”) highlights its focus on keeping your markup beautiful, and thus maintainable, once made dynamic. But Sightly is also one of the very few template languages to take security so seriously with systematic state-of-the-art protection against cross-site scripting (XSS) injections, and automatic context-aware encoding of all output.
