About the OpenJS Foundation

Developers rely on a growing portfolio of open source technologies to create, test and deploy critical applications. By creating a center of gravity for the open source JavaScript ecosystem, the OpenJS Foundation’s mission is to drive broad adoption and ongoing development of key JavaScript solutions and related technologies.

The primary goals of the OpenJS Foundation are:

  • To promote the widespread adoption and continued development of key JavaScript and web solutions and related technologies.
  • To facilitate collaboration within the JavaScript development community.
  • To create a center of gravity for open source projects throughout the end-to-end JavaScript ecosystem guiding them toward open governance and diverse collaborator bases.
  • To host the infrastructure to support hosted JavaScript open source projects.
  • To enable, through advancement of Projects and strategic partnerships, an open and accessible web.

We believe that it is essential to provide a neutral home for critical projects, with common principles of technical governance and accountability.  By doing so, we are providing for the long-term sustainability of both individual projects and the ecosystem as a whole.

If you rely upon the stability and sustainability of this ecosystem, we encourage you to join us as a member!
