A Locker gives people ownership over their personal data and clear control over how it's protected and shared. Providing flexible APIs for access to that data, Lockers are a powerful way for developers to build applications that leverage rich personal data.
The Locker Project is an open source development effort, licensed under the three-clause BSD License, and sponsored by Singly. The core team working on the Locker Project is composed of passionate individuals who spend much of their waking (and sleeping) time thinking about personal data, identity, and the future of communication online and off.
The code base of the Locker Project is primarily developed using node.js, with a bit of Python to facilitate some integration points. We use npm to help manage internal system dependencies, and we try to follow TDD/BDD as enthusiastically as our time will allow. Hopefully, these things will make it easy and exciting for interested developers to jump in, grok the system and start coding!
