First thing. What's an HTML5 Player?

When you build an app on the ManyWho platform (, it doesn't actually have any user interface. Yes, despite you seeing a user interface, this is not being generated by our platform directly. The platform only describes the UI and it's up to the "player" to turn that description into something a user can actually see! It's a bit like a content management system. You have your content (or in our case, the app) and then you have templates that make that content look awesome. ManyWho works in a similar way - except in our case - the templates sit on the device, not on the server. We call these templates "players".

All of our players are share source. You can read our shared source agreement here:

All that basically says is that if you want to use this code, make sure you use it with our platform.
