Tools outfit Fabric Engine has released the debut version of its eponymous programming platform.
"This launch marks the culmination of more than two years of hard work," said Paul Doyle, CEO and co-founder of Fabric Engine. "We have many ideas of what can be achieved with our technology, but we also look forward to seeing all of the creative directions in which developers push Fabric. With our open-source licensing model, it is easy for developers to get started with Fabric Engine and start building high-performance applications."
"With Fabric Engine’s technology, it’s possible to take current backend infrastructure and redeploy it to scale and gain impressive performance increases," added Guido Vieira, general manager at Nexalogy Environics, a company focused on social media analytics and an early adopter of Fabric Engine.
Typically, dynamic language applications have to be re-built via relatively compiled languages so as to maximise performance, which can introduce additional costs. Fabric Engine promises to deliver a performance equivalent to multi-threaded C++, while maintaining the ease of use and speed of iteration of dynamic languages.
Fabric Engine is now available for download here. Developers can use Fabric Engine under the AGPL open-source license, or, if they are not keen on the AGPL license model, can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a commercial license.
