Welcome to the Friend Developers Forum!

The Friend Unifying Platform allows for a new way of thinking about web development. It gives the developer all the components and tools of an operating system without the limitations that normally apply. On the web, you are free of architecture constraints. No need to think about ARM vs PPC vs x86. No hassle to adapt to the client OS that runs the web-browser. Friend is an OS agnostic meta OS. And it’s ready for you!

These forums have been set up so that you can gain detailed knowledge about how to write Friend applications, services and games. It is a much needed addition to our documentation, demos and manuals. Hopefully, they will help us form the community into something that can become a vibrant and dynamic movement to finally toss aside hardware restraints that limit what we can do with software.

To the forums!
