Shindig is a framework for web-based applications. It is an open source project which began in December 2007 to provide a reference implementation for the OpenSocial standard. The software contains both server-side and client-side code. Once the project is mature, an installation of this product will be capable of rendering OpenSocial gadgets in a web browser.
In the announcement for Shindig's first code commit, four primary features of Shindig were cited:
- OpenSocial Gateway Server -- an open source implementation of the server interface to container-specific information, including the OpenSocial REST APIs, with clear extension points so others can connect it to their own backends.It helps truly for open social sources
