This page is intended to capture the the details of community collaborations under focused development, for coordination amongst participants. See below for the lead community developers, links to the primary repositories, issue lists and current goals.

Get Involved!


There are 6 areas of Open Source work going on right now with the community, though if want you'd like to do is not listed, then get in touch with me (@timothywindsor on Twitter) and we'll see what we can set up.

Our current areas are:

  • BB10 WebWorks Extensions
  • bbUI.js Issues and Features
  • Screen Layout Examples
  • Advanced UI Examples
  • Advanced UI using WebGL
  • BB10 AIR Native Extensions

BB10 WebWorks Extensions

Exposing native BlackBerry 10 APIs and porting BBOS extensions for BB10 WebWorks. These extensions are written in C/C++ and JavaScript. See below for our top requests and a link to the Github Issue that tracks development progress. If you have a need for an extension, please open a Github Issue with a description of what you need from the extension. Or, respond on the issue for the extension you need so we can track demand.

Top Extension Requests

1 Screen Backlight Extension

Under investigation by Developer Relations for technical feasibility
Need an extension that will enable an application to keep the backlight on when needed. Investigation will need to be done to see if this is possible in an extension or if it requires changes in the Web Platform itself.

2 Barcode Scanning Extension

needs a volunteer
Create an extension that can be used to scan barcodes using the ZXing library in BB10. We have some Barcode Scanning code that should be a good starting point.

3 Child Browser Extension

needs a volunteer
A more extensive Child Browser extension is needed for some use cases. Ideally, this extension would meet the API requirements of the Cordova API so that the code can be reused.

4 Bluetooth Extension

needs a volunteer
An Extension is needed for WebWorks that would allow search and discovery of Bluetooth devices, connecting, and communication over Bluetooth.

Other Extension Development

Secure One Way Encryption Extension
needs a volunteer
We want to create an extension that wraps the code in this sample:
