HP is making good on its announcement to open source WebOS. The process to bring the whole project open source begins today with the release of Enyo 2.0.

Today HP released Enyo 2.0, the app framework for WebOS 3.0 on the TouchPad. The new open source version of Enyo will let developers create apps not just for WebOS, but for browsers. Enyo 2.0 includes support for WebKit browsers like Chrome and Safari and non-WebKit browsers Firefox and Internet Explorer, which means new Enyo apps should play more nicely with others. With that it’ll be easier to create an app ecosystem, which WebOS desperately needs.

Enyo 2.0 is under the Apache 2.0 license, so it will be free for anyone to use. When the full Open WebOS 1.0 is released, apps created for Enyo 2.0 will work on any device that runs it. For now it seems liekt he apps will only run on the TouchPad and in browsers. It doesn’t have all the features that Enyo 1.0 had on the TouchPad, but those features like the UI widgets will be added soon, along with brand new features.
