Cross platform mobile app development tool suite ‘Fuse’ that supports Android & iOS applications, is now open source.
With the release of ‘Fuse Open’, the entire platform, tooling & libraries are now available for free. The team will be removing the paid professional plan, & will make features & source code available for everyone to use or contribute to.
Here’s what Fuse has said on its Website:
Fuse have been in the app development space since 2012, creating tools that have simplified development and enabled over 80.000 people as well as Fortune 500 companies to create better mobile apps. Before that, we helped create the world’s most popular mobile graphics processor, found in over 2 billion mobile devices today.
On May 14th 2018 we made our tools Open Source, so that the broad community of Fuse developers and designers could take what we had created and build on it, while we as a company shifted our focus towards one of the biggest problems in app development today, which ironically has little do do with technology and more to do with the business of app development: misalignment between the people who need apps and the people who make them.
This is why we have introduced Apps as a Service, powered by our new Fuse App Engine — a way for existing SaaS and digital services to get state-of-the-art native apps tailored to their specific needs without ever again having to worry about how to make mobile apps from scratch.
Using everything we’ve learned while building development tools, we have found that a lot of time and resources are being spent on non-differentiating tasks, maintenance is a pain and new design and implementation paradigms or device updates get in the way of shipping great apps that customers want.
