About This Project

Adaptive Nibble Screenshot

Adaptive Nibble is a mobile device simulator for hybrid-app development. It allows you to use the emulator during the development to preview your app as you develop it and it also emulates calls to the Adaptive Runtime Platform APIs. This is the stand-alone Adaptive Nibble installer for NodeJS.

If you want the integrated version for Adaptive Generator for Yeoman, please refer to the following repo: AdaptiveMe App Generator for Yeoman for installation instructions.

About Adaptive Runtime Platform

Hybrid apps are applications that are built using HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript web technologies and use a native "containers" to package the app to enable access to the native functionalities of a device. In essence, you can write a rich mobile/wearable/tv application using HTML and JavaScript and package that application as a native app for multiple mobile/wearable/tv platforms and distribute them on the different app stores and markets.

The Adaptive Runtime Platform (ARP) provides these native "containers" to package apps for the main mobile, wearable and desktop platforms... and other platforms as they emerge. Adaptive Runtime Platform (ARP) and sub-projects are open-source under the Apache License, Version 2.0. The Adaptive Runtime Platform (ARP) project was created by Carlos Lozano Diez as part of the adaptive.me set of products.
