Announcing Cappuccino

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

We don’t want to repeat ourselves too much across this blog and our new one, but this news is too important to pass up.  

Cappuccino, our web application framework built in Objective-J and modeled after Cocoa, is now available as an open source project at!

Francisco said it best:

We’re open sourcing this technology because we sincerely want to be part of a world where there are more high quality web applications like 280 Slides. We’ll be putting a lot of resources into Cappuccino in the future, and we plan to build a strong open source community around the development platform. We can’t wait to see where you take this with us.

Techcrunch also posted a great write-up.

Cappuccino is how we built 280 Slides, and it’s going to change the way people build web applications. So, head on over to and get started building your own app!
