Google launches website to give its open source projects a new home

Share

Serving as a new home for Google Open Source, the website showcases the company's various open source projects, some of which include Android, Chromium, and Flutter.

Given Google's recent open source successes like Kubernetes and TensorFlow, both of which have already created large ecosystems around them, those documents are worth a closer look, especially for other companies that want to release some of their internal code as open source. Implemented in the form of a tag cloud, you simply click or tap the icons of a particular open source product you're interested in, which takes you directly to a page from where you can download its source code from Google's own Git code hosting service.

The blog post also explained that while the documents found on the website describe the open source processes used by Google, they also provide insight as to why Google does what they do.
