MS Open Tech Contributes Metro Theme To JQuery Mobile Project

Microsoft Open Technology Inc a new company created by Microsoft to fully engage with the Open Source Community, recently made an important contribution to the JQuery Mobile project. This new Metro style theme’s development was sponsored by Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc. working closely with Sergei Grebnov, an Apache Cordova committer and jQuery Mobile developer.

MS Open Tech recently contributed a theme to the JQuery Mobile project to enable mobile application developers making use of JQuery Mobile to develop HTML 5 pages that adapt to the Metro Style design when rendered on Windows Phones 7.5. The Metro Style theme is currently available for download from GitHub.

The CSS and Javascript theme adapts to the current theme used in Windows Phone and applies the right styling to the jQuery Mobile controls. This allows mobile HTML5 web sites and hybrid applications to naturally integrate into the Windows Phone Metro style experience. This offers developers the choice of rapidly integrating the theme into their existing application but also to contribute to this open source project through GitHub.
