Palm launches Project Ares SDK public beta

updated 09:00 pm EST, Thu December 17, 2009

Developer utility now entirely web-based

Palm on Thursday launched a public beta of its Project Ares SDK utility. Unlike the company's current Mojo SDK, the Ares offering is entirely web-based. The development environment features a drag-and-drop interface builder, code editor, visual debugger, log viewer, and more. Users can also take advantage of one-click previews and app launching in the webOS emulator.

The interface builder is claimed to allow creation of complex layouts that automatically switch orientation and support various webOS devices. Drag-and-drop tools theoretically will allow the SDK to be used by individuals unfamiliar with traditional coding techniques.

Ares requires a free Palm developer community account and can be downloaded directly from Palm.

    I gave it a whirl and I’m actually pretty impressed. I’m going to dig around a little deeper tomorrow.
