Airbnb acquired Deco and the Deco IDE will be Open Sourced

Deco is an app I first heard about a year ago and it looked great for those working with React Native. The company behind it, Deco Software, has just been acquired by Airbnb.

Today, we are excited to share that the entire Deco Software team is joining Airbnb where we will continue to advance tooling for designers and engineers. While we will no longer officially support Deco IDE as a product, it will live on as a free and open source project.

Looking at the Github repo of the IDE it appears the app hasn’t been updated in a while, I didn’t see any commits from 2017, so it appears to me that the project will be no longer under active development and will rely on the community but no specifics are added around who will be in control of handling issues, pull requests, etc. So I’m lead to believe it’ll be no longer actively developed.
