Google has released an open-source bundle containing several of its in-house developer tools.
Google said that it has been using its in-house version of Closure for years to create its web applications, including Gmail, Google Maps and Google Docs. The company hopes that the release of the tools will help further the development of web applications.
"Like developers everywhere, Googlers want great web apps to be easier to create, so we've built many tools to help us develop these (and many other) apps," the company said in a posting to the Google code blog.
"We are happy to announce the open sourcing of these tools, and proud to make them available to the web development community."
