Fluid Framework

Microsoft’s Jared Spataro announced that Fluid Framework—a platform for developers to improve collaboration on documents—will be open sourced. Spataro said that Fluid Framework’s code will be added on GitHub within the next few weeks. Developers will be able to build new, collaborative experiences using Fluid Framework via JavaScript APIs.

Along with this open source announcement, Spataro shared that Microsoft will add Fluid Framework to some of Microsoft’s productivity apps. These include Outlook, where users will be able to use Fluid Components to auto-update charts, tables, and task lists. Office.com users will also be able to use Fluid Framework shortly via @mentions and activity feeds per document.
