Over the years, Google has not only implemented numerous pieces open source software in its own products and services, but also contributed several tools for people to use in their own projects.
That includes things like a JPEG encoder which can reduce file sizes by 35 percent, beautiful usable fonts including Roboto and Noto, and Bazel for testing software builds.
It’s now launched a new site that showcases all these efforts. Google Open Source includes a directory of projects that the company has made available to the community, a list of initiatives it runs to engage with programmers, as well as documentation explaining how Google uses, contributes to and releases open source code, so other organizations can follow suit.
The site is now live; head here to check it out.
