Hi guys, I want to share something I've been working on for last several months. It's called Jasonette.

Jasonette is an app that takes a JSON markup and turns it into iOS native components and function calls, which then can be packaged and distributed as your own app.

And the most important part: it's 100% open source under MIT license, which means you can take it and build your app, submit it to the appstore, and do whatever you want with it!

Here are some benefits:

1. Minimum learning curve
You can describe the view layout (like HTML), component style (like CSS), and native function calls (like Javascript) ALL in JSON. All you need is a single JSON.

2. Send Native App over HTTP
Anything that can be expressed in JSON can be sent over the Internet. Anything that can be sent over the Internet doesn't need to be on the client. Since Jasonette lets you express the app 100% in JSON, you don't need to hard-code your app on the phone anymore. Instead, the app loads directly from the server everytime a user opens the app.

3. Describe instead of programming
Instead of writing and compiling complex program lines, you only need to write a single markup that describes what the view should look like and how it should behave. An app that used to take days to build can be built in 10 minutes.

Hope I did a good job explaining, but you'll def get it when you watch the video. Love to hear what people think!

Just watched the video and this looks awesome! Have you actually submitted any apps to the app store built with Jasonette yet? Wondering if you got any push back from Apple with the apps being so dynamic outside of their review process?

Hey y'all! Back when @gliechtenstein launched Jason (the JSON browser that uses Jasonette as it's engine) I wrote up a PodRec app. I've now got that app installed on my phone with Jasonette. Besides some bugs @gliechtenstein fixed during testing, it took ~15 seconds for me to drop in my JSON link and be running that app natively on my device.
