The CMS developers love. Open Source, API-first and Enterprise-grade. Try BloomReach CMS for free.

There is a lot of talk lately (really a lot, here and here, and the first one, here) about the toolkit Google is creating to allow developers to port their Chrome apps to Android and iOS. Chrome apps are built with HTML/CSS and JavaScript, and the ports will be made possible through the use of Apache Cordova. There's still no official confirmation from Google, but signs are pointing to a release as early as January 2014.

Another big clue comes from this talk at PhoneGap Day 2013 from Michal Mocny, a software engineer at Google, in which he basically explains the whole idea:



BloomReach CMS: the API-first CMS of the future. Open-source & enterprise-grade. - As a Java developer, you will feel at home using Maven builds and your favorite IDE (e.g. Eclipse or IntelliJ) and continuous integration server (e.g. Jenkins). Manage your Java objects using Spring Framework, write your templates in JSP or Freemarker. Try for free.
