The bbUI toolkit was created to provide a design language for HTML5 applications using the BlackBerry WebWorks framework. It provides common UI constructs that are found on the BlackBerry platform so that you can create an application that follows BlackBerry specific UI guidelines and looks at home on a BlackBerry device with very little effort.
The bbUI toolkit supports all BlackBerry platforms from BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 through to BlackBerry 7, as well as BlackBerry PlayBook OS and BlackBerry 10. In each case, the toolkit uses CSS that achieves a similar user experience to the native applications on the platform, and tailors it to suit the capabilities of the device.
Getting the toolkit
