Developer services company appMobi has released two HTML5 frameworks as open source projects. The aUX (appMobi User Experience) helps developers to quickly create HTML5 mobile apps for touch-based interfaces.
The first library, aUX_web.js, provides common functions such as scrolling, password entry, animated carousel selection, and multi-button selection for use by developers coding HTML5 mobile apps. It does not require the use of the appMobi development platform. appMobi says aUX_web.js is useful to any programmers developing mobile apps, regardless of the toolset they are using.
The second library is called aUX.js, and offers HTML5 developers easy access to tricky functions such as animated screen transitions, inertial scrolling of lists, and touch gestures. aUX.js works within any appMobi app that the user is developing, whether for native iOS or Android, or as a web app.
“Back in 2009, appMobi placed its bet on HTML5 as the unifying technology for mobile, and we welcome all web developers to the mobile party,” says appMobi CTO Sam Abadir. “As our developer base has grown, we have continually been asked for lighter, faster, more HTML5-optimized UI frameworks than those currently available. Our aUX frameworks were built specifically for mobile – smaller in size, less than half the code of JQ Mobile, and faster as well, but they provide all these features, even neutralising known CSS3 bugs on Android devices. Of course, as Open Source projects, they are free for anyone to use.”
The aUX framework code and documentation can be downloaded for free from the appMobi website.
