Open Sourcing the JavaScript Widget

Open source the Javascript widget RingCaptcha SMS.

At RingCaptcha, we believe in a few things very strongly:  1. Phone numbers are the strongest identity signal. 2.Chuck Norris jokes still make us laugh. 3. Open source is the only way to succeed.

It’s always been a big part of our vision to release our code samples, SDKs, widgets and documentation under an open source license, and we’re continually pushing toward that goal.

Our efforts thus far have been strong, with more than a dozen open source repositories on Github, and more to come.

Our latest push adds the RingCaptcha Onboarding Widget, released under the Apache 2.0 license.

The Javascript onboarding widget is only a few lines of code during implementation (easy peasy), but we knew that many of you would want to see what was under the hood here, so to speak.

By placing the widget code on Github, under an open source license, we’re giving you the keys to really customize the onboarding experience for your users, without having to reinvent the wheel.

It’s our hope that by providing this widget under the Apache 2.0 license, you’ll take it and fork it at will. Derivation is the highest form of flattery!

We know that your additions and suggestions will make RingCaptcha the simplest, and most reliable way to do SMS onboarding and authentication, and for that we are grateful.

We’re proud of our commitment to the open source community, and we will be releasing more code regularly. Please follow RingCaptcha on Github to take advantage of all our upcoming releases. And let us know what you think!
