Open-sourcing our first project: Echo UI.

As I mentioned in another post, we benefit hugely from the open-source community here at Echoleft. We leverage the work of smart, talented developers from all over the world in our software and it’s very important that we never take that for granted.

As discussed by some people we admire, there is a responsibility to share what you’re working on, even the parts that don’t work.

With that in mind, we have open-sourced Echo UI, which is the CSS framework that powers Echoleft, our blog and some other exciting things that we have coming up. There are already some incredible open-source CSS frameworks available, and we haven’t built anything to replace those. Instead, we want to provide transparency into our work, and a learning resource for those that are getting started.

Over the next few months we’ll be writing up some of the decisions that go into our tools, along with how we build and use them.

This is just one step on a very long journey of sharing what we’re doing and how we do it. Thanks for taking a little time to be part of it.
