ReachLocal Open Sources Mobile App Development Framework
Woodland Hills-based ReachLocal, which offers up local, online marketing services for small and medium sized businesses, said this morning that it has released a chunk of software to the open source community, to help others develop cross-platform, mobile apps. ReachLocal said its open source framework, LigerMobile, was originally developed to power its ReachEdge mobile app for Android and iOS. The move looks to be ReachLocal's first large scale, open source effort. The company said it hoped that by sharing its code, the development community can create their own, cross-platform applications and help improve the code. ReachLocal has posted its code on the Github open source code repository.
