Social & Widgets
Apache Shindig is an OpenSocial container (Java and PHP) and helps you to start hosting OpenSocial apps quickly by providing the code to render gadgets, proxy requests, and handle REST and RPC requests. OpenSocial apps are built using common web technologies and adhere to the OpenSocial specification allowing them to run on a variety of social platforms.
Apache Shindig's goal is to allow new sites to start hosting social apps in under an hour's worth of work.
Apache Rave is a web & social mashup engine that provides a framework for managing and hosting OpenSocial gadgets and W3 widgets. Rave's lightweight framework for widget management is being used to produce all manner of applications, from the out-of-the-box portal and profile system to line-of-business applications and customer engagement platforms. A primary goal of Rave is to provide a fully functional OpenSocial container using Apache Shindig.

Apache Wookie (Incubating)
Apache Wookie is a Java server application that allows you to upload and deploy widgets for your applications; widgets can not only include all the usual kinds of mini-applications, badges, and gadgets, but also fully-collaborative applications such as chats, quizzes, and games.
Wookie is based on the W3C Widgets specification, but widgets can also be included that use extended APIs such as Google Wave Gadgets and OpenSocial.
- What is Wookie and why do I care?
- Creating widgets using our template system
- Likely to include improving the template system which is currently a proof of concept
Apache Wave (Incubating)
Apache Wave is a ditributed, near-real-time, rich collaboration platform that allows users to work together in new and exciting ways. Wave allows for flexible modes of communication, blending chat, email and collaborative document editing in to one seamless environment. Wave provides a lively and responsive environment that promotes more fluid and dynamic collaboration between users. The addition of Robots and Gagets allow the Wave platform to provide intelligence, integration, and customizability to the users experience.
Big Data & Content
About Apache Chemistry
Apache Chemistry is a collection of projects related to the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) standard. CMIS is a standard that describes a vendor-neutral, language independent way of working with rich content repositories (aka, Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems, Document Management Systems, Content Management Systems) such as Alfresco, Apache Jackrabbit, Documentum, FileNet, Nuxeo, and SharePoint, to name a few.
Perhaps the best-known project in Apache Chemistry is OpenCMIS, which is a Java-based project that includes two reference server implementations, a client implementation, and a repository browser tool called Workbench. Apache Chemistry also includes client APIs for CMIS in Python, PHP, and .NET. An Android client was recently added and an iOS client is forthcoming.
CMIS provides a standardized interface to all of the major content repositories running in companies today. Apache Chemistry seeks to be the go-to resource for people interesting in implementing CMIS, either on the client or the server.
