Myspace has always been committed to open standards and the open Internet. The Myspace Developer Platform team is now taking it a step further and will be open sourcing our internally developed Myspace OpenSocial Gadget container. Now there will be a high quality and highly scalable .Net implementation of an OpenSocial Gadget container available to the community. This will provide an excellent complement to the Java and PHP based containers developed by the Shindig
project as we continue to support OpenSocial
as one of the foundational building blocks of the open web.
If you would like to see a preview of the template framework code, it is available for download at Project Negroni on Google Code
. In the coming weeks we'll be releasing the OpenSocial gadget renderer controls as well so you can start exploring our code, testing your gadgets locally, and even implementing your own gadget container on your .Net hosted site!
