Devs: Polar Mobile Open Sources PlayBook WebWorks ChildBrowser Extension

WebWorks OpenSource Polar Mobile

I love seeing BlackBerry developers giving back to the developer community. I think this is all part of RIM’s new move towards opensource especially with WebWorks and it seems like the trend is catching on. Polar Mobile’s Michael Russo has released a BlackBerry PlayBook WebWorks extension for ChildBrowser windows. This lets developers embed external web pages within a WebWorks app. For some reason RIM does not provide this functionality natively and alternatives like iFrames run into issues.

Check out the details in Michael Russo’s post about the ChildBrowser extension or find the extension on GitHub. Kudos to Polar Mobile for sharing!
