The objective of the bbUI toolkit is to provide a BlackBerry® User Experience and Design Language for HTML5 applications using the BlackBerry [WebWorks] framework. It provides common UI constructs that are found on the BlackBerry operating system so that you can create an application that follows system UI guidelines and looks at home on a BlackBerry with very little effort.

The framework started within [WebWorks-Samples][repo:webworks-amples] but later became a top project. The project is an incubation project and [Tim Neil] is the project lead.

Currently the support for BBOS smartphones is more complete than that for PlayBook. We expect this to change quickly.
