Announcing the Wijmo Beta!

Greetings earthlings, we come in peace! Wijmo has landed and is going to be announced at jQuery Conference in Boston. We are so proud to be able to make this announcement and can't wait to hear what you think of the project. I'm sure you are asking yourself: "What on Earth is Wijmo?".

What is Wijmo?

It is a complete kit of jQuery UI widgets. Wijmo is an extension to jQuery UI and adds new widgets and features to your arsenal. Every widget was built to jQuery UI's standards and framework. Some widgets like slider and dialog literally .extend() their counterpart from jQuery UI. Each widget is ThemeRoller-ready and comes styled with our own version of Aristo.

Sneak Peak

Like What You See? Join the Beta!

With the start of jQuery Boston Conference, the Wijmo private beta begins. We are currently working hard to get everything finalized and uploaded to github. So sign up for the Wijmo Beta program and you will be the first to know when its available. Hurry up and join since only the first 1,000 will be accepted into the Private Beta. We expect to have everything available for download the week following the conference. We then plan to host a Public Beta starting November 23. The Public Beta will be open to everyone who wants to participate.

How will Wijmo be Licensed?

Wijmo consists of two sets of widgets, Wijmo Open and Wijmo Complete. Wijmo Open is free and open source just like jQuery under the MIT/GPL v.2 license. Wijmo Complete is our commercial offering and will be fully supported and continually improved upon. In a nutshell: we want to make a living developing jQuery widgets, but want to give back to the community while doing so. Feel free to read more about our licensing plans.
