Node.js fork JXcore becomes open source
Delivering on their promise, the team behind Node.js fork JXcore have released the framework as entirely open source, with the SpiderMonkey crew acknowledged for their efforts. The Node.js community can add another notch to is widening belt.
The JXcore crew have taken the project out into open source territory, and they want everyone to know about it. While they’re a fork of Node.js, they also consider themselves as contributing to the community with the intent of keeping the core features of JXcore compatible with Node.
Significance at maximum level
The significance of the project now being open source means more community contribution and engagement. Oguz Bastemar, CTO for Nubisa (the company behind JXcore) stated that the team found it important to open source JXcore prior to final stability updates, as they didn’t want to make future decisions alone.
Team size and resources have also been attributed to the open sourcing decision, with Bastemar confident that JXcore can become a community driven open-source and open-governance project that can realise its full potential.
SpiderMonkey have been acknowledged for their support and efforts in achieving the multi-engine architecture JXcore now boasts, with Bastemar citing SpiderMonkey as the eventual preference for non-IoT plaftorms.
