Yahoo Attempts to Create a Mobile Footprint with Mojito
Yahoo built the framework as part of its Yahoo Cocktails suite of tools, and has now made Mojito available to be used and improved upon by all. As Yahoo states on their Mojito development page:
This framework would seem to be a great resource for low-end devices, which struggle to deal with increased application memory requirements and heavy network traffic. This enables developers to create apps that can run in any situation, regardless of the OS. The list of Yahoo apps currently utilizing Mojito are:
- Yahoo! Livestand (native app)
- Fantasy Finance (web site)
- Fantasy Premiere League Football (mobile web app)
The source is available on Github, and you can visit Yahoo’s Developer Network page for more information about the framework.

This year, cardboard returned...
