Open Source rookies of the year

The Black Duck Software awards

Article comments

The sixth annual Black Duck Open Source Rookies of the Year awards recognize the top open source projects initiated in the past year. This year's honorees span cloud computing, software virtualization, privacy, social media, and the Internet of things. The selection is based on statistics gathered from Black Duck's Ohloh site, the leading open source software directory, using such metrics as the total number of commits and commiters, the distribution of commits across committers, and social media traffic.



Appium is an open source test automation framework for use with native and hybrid mobile apps. It drives iOS and Android apps via the WebDriver JSON wire protocol. As mobile apps become core to our operating infrastructure, agile development methodologies require automated testing to deliver. Appium provides a broad platform for testing both native and hybrid mobile apps on iOS and Android, enabling organizations to utilize a single testing tool to support their growing needs. While initially started as a tool for SauceLabs to help customers build a scalable, automated test environment, Appium has taken on a life of its own with a rapidly expanding, diverse developer community
