The OpenJS Foundation will aim to provide a neutral location for hosting, sustaining and funding projects and activities that benefit the entire ecosystem. It is currently made up of 31 open-source projects such as the popular Appium, Dojo, jQuery, Node.js and webpack projects. In addition, the foundation will extend non-hosted projects.
For developers, the foundation explains it will provide a “more effective distribution of financial and marketing resources.”
Current corporate members include GoDaddy, Google, IBM, Joyent, PayPal and MIcrosoft.
