Right now, one of the world’s largest interactive conferences, South by Southwest (SXSW), is in full swing in Austin, Texas. And we’re excited to share that members of ReachLocal’s own development team will be demonstrating our newly-launched open-source protocol LigerMobile today at this renowned conference.
The ReachLocal team developed the LigerMobile protocol to power the mobile apps for our ReachEdge product on both iPhone and Android platforms. The ReachEdge app allows our customers to access mobile contact list, reports, and insights on how their website and lead management are performing.
We recently released the LigerMobile protocol to the development community as an open-source framework other companies and individual developers can leverage when building apps that need to run on both Android and iOS platforms. A lightweight, open-source framework the LigerMobile technology helps developers create hybrid apps quickly and easily, making cross-platform app development process much smoother.
“We want to share that code with the development community to inspire them to create their own cross-platform applications and help us improve the code,” said Kris Barton, chief product officer at ReachLocal.
Today’s SXSW LigerMobile Workshop will be lead by ReachLocal Senior Software Engineers Alec Plumb, Brad Marsh, and John Gustafsson, and Lead Software Engineer Robert Tomb. You can learn more about LigerMobile by attending our SXSW workshop if you’re in Austin today, or, check it out on GitHub, where you can also access tutorials and resources on writing LigerMobile apps.
