Open Source Peek framework

Open Source Peek framework.

A little while back I had the opportunity to produce a ‘lite’ version of an application framework I was creating with the help of a few friends (cmw, dre), and have it ported to the peek platform. Peek went on to use their own in-house system instead which is more targeted toward their market whereas this implementation was aimed at bringing smart phone applications to low-end devices without looking too budget and while working fantastically. To be honest, the implementation never ended up working as well as it should have. cmw built a full qemu emulator of the peek so be sure to check out his stuff if the platform interests you. cmw and dre also ported a full web browser to the platform, seriously ninja skills right?

The application platform allows you to offload a lot of implementation and processing to the server side and gives you XML and scripting languages for the device side. This makes the development cycle ridiculously fast compared with traditional compiling of native code for target devices. Some smart technology takes care of the communication so that even though a lot is offloaded to the server side, you never really notice, the applications just behave as if they were native.
