Ares 2 gets a demo webcast all its own

Yesterday we showed you a presentation by HP's Kevin Schaaf at dotJS showing just why you as a developer should be considering using Enyo 2 as the framework for your multi-platform app. But do you really want to do it all in code? Well, you might, but we don't. We've always been fans of the Ares in-browser app builder, though getting it updated to support Enyo 2 has been a process. If you're not familiar with Ares, it was originally crafted for the Mojo app framework and allowed developers to build webOS apps with drag-and-drop ease.

Ares 2.0 ended up on the open source webOS roadmap with planned release of April 2012. The code for Ares 2 was released to open source as planned at the end of April, but it was nowhere near complete, with the development process thrown all to hell by the departure of the core of the Enyo team for Google a month prior. So Ares 2 was released to open source in spirit, but actually making use of it, that was months away still.

In the meantime, development has continued on Ares 2, albeit at a slow and steady pace. To demonstrate where Ares 2 currently stands, HP's Mark Bessey took to YouTube with a 13-minute Hello World-style demonstration of the app builder. And true to the original Mojo version, Ares 2 works with the same drag-and-drop principles. There's a difference, though: Ares 2 itself is an Enyo app. Yeah, you can now use an Enyo app to build an Enyo app.

Check out the video demo after the break.
