Open Source

AppShed apps and developer tools are open source. Find out about the open source licence, downloading the code, and using the code for your business/organisation.


Open Source Code

Web Apps

The HTML5 web apps are open source. You are able to download the source files and host the web apps on your own server. You can adapt and modify the source code (in accordance with the licence agreement).

Native Apps (App Store)

AppShed provides a downloadable export file that can be packaged as a native app ready for most of the app stores. We use PhoneGap as the native wrapper. The AppShed ZIP file has all the PhoneGap requirements included.

Developer SDK

The developer SDK is open source. This can be used by developers (PHP & other) to write server-side code that integrates with the apps. The SDK uses JSON web-services to send dynmaic data to the app.

Download the PHP SDK from GitHub.
